Weber's mythologized vision of uber-rock star glamour circa '92: After rocking out, an imaginary band frolics in leather and denim, peels it off, strikes very suggestive poses, pouts a lot, etc...all in richly stylized black-and-white. Iconic does not even begin to describe Weber's advertising work of this period. In its way, a catalogue that is an essential document of early 90s visual culture. The vibe created by Calvin Klein-Bruce Weber spawned legions of imitators and became a staple of, go-to look for innumerable ad campaigns in the years--decades, even!--to follow.
Almost Fine; light rubbing and wear to joint; slight surface scratch front cover.
