Printed on pristine-white, thick coated 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 at the Stephen Daiter Gallery Chicago in 2002. Presents Marvin E. Newman's "The Face of Sports". Some of the photographer's finest and most representative images. One of the toughest photographic projects anyone could possibly undertake, the appeal of taking photographs of athletes in action is that it allows the photographer to show how a still medium can capture and communicate, convincingly and compellingly, movement, motion, and rhythm. Marvin E. Newman's classic, "Uppercut, Blurred Motion, 1960", the photograph on the cover, is a great example of how one feels the force, energy, and vitality of movement, a virtual ballet. The British Renaissance Man, Jonathan Miller, devoted a significant portion of his book, "On Reflection", to the way our eyes are trained to see, not just imagine, movement in art and photography, and ascribes the dramatic changes to our way of seeing to the technical as well as creative advances of photography. An absolute "must-have" title for Marvin E. Newman collectors. This copy is very boldly and beautifully signed in gold pen-marker on the first page by Marvin E. Newman. It is signed directly on the page itself, not on a tipped-in page. This title is now collectible. As far as we know, this is the only such signed copy of the Exhibition Catalog available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a pristine beauty. Please note: This is a catalog, NOT a full-fledged volume. But its production values, rarity, and Newman's elusive signature make it eminently collectible. A rare signed copy thus. Illustrated with color plates and black-and-white reproductions. One of the greatest photographers of the 20th century. A fine copy. Bookseller Inventory # 4241
