Published in a small and limited print run as a hardcover original only. The First Edition is now scarce. A brilliant production by Nigel Parry and Pentagram: Oversize-volume format. Black cloth boards with metallic-silver titles embossed on cover and spine, as issued. Photographs by Nigel Parry. Essays by Tom Ford and Roger Rosenblatt. Printed on pristine-white, thick coated stock paper to the highest standards. In pictorial DJ, which utilizes an extreme closeup portrait of the Hollywood actor Paul Giamatti, and titles on the cover and spine, as issued. Presents Nigel Parry's "Blunt". Some of the finest and most innovative celebrity portraits of our time. "His brilliant lens has captured the most powerful politicos, the most famous celebrities, and the most beautiful Beautiful People of our day. His in-your-face style and exacting precision yields portraits like one has never seen. Each of the portraits in this wildly diverse collection is in Parry's signature style: Intimate, honest, and wholly original. They include Ewan McGregor, Russell Crowe, Jimmy Fallon, Renee Zellweger, Clint Eastwood, Paul Newman, Brad Pitt, Freddie Prinze Jr. , Matt LeBlanc, Tom Hanks, Samuel L. Jackson, Meg Ryan, Regis Philbin, Christina Applegate, Matthew McConaughey, Christian Bale, Gael Garcia Bernal, Cate Blanchett, Michael Caine, Hayden Christensen, Ellen DeGeneres, Edie Falco, Susan Sarandon, Ralph Fiennes, Keira Knightley, Nathan Lane, Denis Leary, Ray Liotta, Liam Neeson, Cynthia Nixon, Ed Harris, Joaquin Phoenix, Mario Van Peebles, Dennis Quaid, Christopher Walken, Ed Burns, Ben Stiller, Kiefer Sutherland, Stanley Tucci, Ike Turner, Wesley Snipes, Mark Wahlberg, Dustin Hoffman, Bruce Willis, Javier Bardem, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Ahmad Chalabi, Hillary Clinton, Monica Lewinsky, Condoleezza Rice, Paul Wolfowitz, Saul Bellow, Norman Mailer, J.

Precisely because it is overdone, the celebrity portrait is actually very difficult to do well. Nigel Parry shows that he has done some of the very best. An absolute "must-have" title for Nigel Parry collectors. This copy is very prominently and beautifully signed, dated (in the year of publication), and inscribed in black pen-marker on the title page by Nigel Parry. It is signed directly on the page itself, not on a tipped-in page. There is no recipient named. This title is now collectible. As far as we know, this is the only such signed and inscribed copy of the First Hardcover Edition/First Printing available online and has no flaws, a pristine beauty. A rare signed copy thus. 145 plates. One of the most brilliant British photographers of our time. A flawless copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER NIGEL PARRY TITLE IN OUR CATALOG) ISBN 1576873269.
