Morceaux Choisis. Photographs by Bettina Rheims. Designed by Gerhard Steidl. Steidl, Gottingen, 2002. Unpaged. Octavo (small size). First edition. Printed wrappers. Hand-sewn binding. Contained in hinged red metal case. Color reproductions.
Included in 802 Photo Books. A selection from the M+M. Auer collection.
A sexy red tin box, a simple yet elegant softbound book with a gray cover, and 21 color photographs. No text except the title and the colophon page--yet none, really, is required. This book is about love; love as styled by Versace and photographed by Bettina Rheims--you know, high heels, fuchsia nail polish, three beautiful models...
A single red thread binds the pages together; utterly tasteful & luxe, utterly raunchy.
