Perspective of Nudes. Photographs by Bill Brandt. Preface by Lawrence Durrell. Introduction by Chapman Mortimer. Amphoto, New York, 1961. 14 pp. text + plates. 11 x 9.5 in./28/ x 24 cm.. First edition. Hardbound with decorative boards. Photo-illustrated dust jacket. 90 gravure reproductions printed in Switzerland by Heliographia.

A book that looks back to Kertész's Distortions and forward to the psychedelia of the late 60s. As Vince Aletti writes in The Book of 101 Books, Brandt "conjure[d] a dream world of skewed perspectives in which his nude female subjects appeared to float unanchored or loom like giants." In The Photobook: A History, Vol. I., Parr and Badger assert that Brandt "rewrote the language of nude photography in not one, but several quarters...[they are] as interesting for their psychological undertones as for the wealth of unexpected forms he conjured...Brandt pictured a world of faded grandeur, of Edwardian bourgeois homes metamorphosing into 1940s bedsit land--cavernous refuges for European émigrés or bohemian nonconformists."
