The First Edition is now scarce. The book is brilliantly produced, with black cloth boards, full-page photographic plates by Marc Hauser, and an illuminating Essay by Jonah Horwitz. Printed on pristine-white, thick coated stock paper by Pressley Johnson Design Chicago in the United States to the highest standards. In pictorial DJ with titles on the cover and spine, as issued. Presents Marc Hauser's "Body Language: Stories In Flesh". Or why the tattoo, in whole, in most, or in part of one's body, is here to stay. Here are some of the most Beautiful People one will ever see, in the full splendor of Marc Hauser's sensitive and sublime color photography. "Brings to life the stories behind the Body Art of a wide-ranging group of individuals. Told through the work of iconic photographer Marc Hauser, The Exquisite and The Unusual are given new meaning through personal tales and anecdotes" (Publisher's blurb). Individually and collectively, the images are exquisite. The digital-scan printing reproduction captures them so well that the images seem to leap off the page. The accompanying stories are fascinating. Tattooing is an ancient tradition, not a recent fad. It is an integral aspect of all tribal societies throughout the world, none of whom had any contact with one another. Still, being "into ink" is presented by Marc Hauser with a fresh, celebratory, and contemporary perspective. He shows us that for those committed to turning their bodies into veritable works of art, tattooing is about many things: Beauty, sex appeal, alternative lifestyles, and the search for meaning. An absolute "must-have" title for Marc Hauser collectors. This title is a contemporary photography classic. This is one of few copies of the First Hardcover Edition/First Printing still available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a beauty. A scarce copy thus. Lavishly illustrated with color plates. One of the most brilliant American photographers of our time. A fine copy. ISBN 0974201367. Bookseller Inventory # 20337
