Description:

1st Printing. Unpaginated. Published in 1995. Debut collection of male nudes. One of the most elegant erotic art photography titles of the last decade of the 20th century. 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 Ken Sansone: Oversize-volume format. Pictorial hard boards with titles printed on spine, as issued. Photographs by George Machado. Introductory Essay, one of the best pieces on male nude photography, by Frank Browning. Printed on pristine-white, thick coated stock paper in the United States to the highest standards. In pictorial DJ with titles on the cover and spine, as issued. Presents George Machado's "Masculine". The photographer's breakthrough debut collection. Rightly heralded for "Machado's use of light and shadow, his ability to match the pose, the subject, and the background, and most of all, his eye for the emotionally expressive and arresting qualities of the male form and face" (Frank Browning). An absolute "must-have" title for George Machado collectors. This title is now collectible. 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. Please note: Almost all other copies available online have major flaws: Worn, soiled, torn, and very heavily used. A scarce copy thus. 100 toned plates. One of the most accomplished photographers of the male nude of our time. A fine copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER GEORGE MACHADO TITLE IN OUR CATALOG) ISBN 0517701995. Bookseller Inventory # 17826
