O Rio de Janeiro. Bruce Weber. With Drawings by Richard Giglio. A Borzio Book/Alfred A. Knopf, New York, 1986. Unpaged. Folio. First edition. Thick photo-illustrated wrappers. Numerous black-and-white and color-toned reproductions.
"Weber’s second book, O Rio de Janeiro, brought all the elements of his commercial work together and was the first to incorporate the vivacious pastiche of original and borrowed material that had become the signature of his issue-filling spreads in Per Lui and L’Uomo Vouge. Working with designers Donald Sterzin, Rïse Daniels, and Sam Shahid, Weber turned his trademark fiction of youthful exuberance and sexy camaraderie into a fastpaced montage intercut with landscapes, still lifes, news photos, family snapshots, and drawings by Richard Giglio." --Vince Aletti, in Roth, et. al., The Book of 101 Books
