1st Printing. Unpaginated. Published in 1997. Exhibition Catalog, presented as an Artist Book. The First Hardcover Edition. Precedes and should not be confused with all other subsequent editions. Published in a small and limited first print run as a hardcover original only. The First Edition is now scarce. A brilliant production by Bulfinch: Regular-sized volume format. Pictorial hard boards with titles on cover and spine, as issued. Photographs and text by Bruce Weber. Printed on pristine-white, thick uncoated stock paper in the United States to the highest standards. Without DJ, as issued. Published on the occasion of the exhibition of the same name held in London in 1997. Presents Bruce Weber's "Branded Youth". A look at the "Other America". The less-than-glamorous, gritty, and ruggedly handsome men of the heartland often heartlessly referred to as "white trash". The book covers a much wider geography than Weber's gem of a classic, "No Valet Parking", which was shot entirely in Montana. But the focus is the same: "Beehiving" groups of young men in small-town America and other parts of the Western world. Filled on virtually every page with full-page, black-and-white and color photographs that find and celebrate the beauty of the All-American man. One of the most celebrated fashion and lifestyle photographers of our time, Weber, deep down, is a follower of Walt Whitman, who espoused that beauty could be found everywhere if only one kept an open mind. An absolute "must-have" title for Bruce Weber collectors. This title is a contemporary erotic art 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 pristine beauty. A scarce copy thus. Lavishly illustrated with duotone and color plates. Bruce Weber's "O Rio de Janeiro", the sexiest photography book ever published, was selected as one of the "Seminal Photography Books of the 20th Century" in the "Book of 101 Books". One of the finest American photographers of our time. A fine copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER BRUCE WEBER TITLES IN OUR CATALOG) ISBN 0821225251. Bookseller Inventory # 12961
