Description:

1st Printing. 168 pages. Published in 1991. Retrospective collection of photographs, presented as an Artist Book. One of the artist/photographer's earliest and most beautiful books. The true First Edition. Precedes and should not be confused with all other subsequent editions. Published in a tiny first print run as a softcover original and distributed only in Japan. The First Edition is now rare. An austerely elegant production by Sarah Moon: Oversize-volume format. White softcovers, as issued. Photographs by Sarah Moon. There is minimal text. Printed on pristine-white, thick coated stock paper in Tokyo, Japan to the highest standards. In pictorial DJ with titles on the cover and spine, as issued. Presents Sarah Moon's "Vrais Semblants". Her breakthrough - and still her most iconic - title. Exquisitely printed on Japanese paper, her shimmering and suggestive images are showcased in all their timeless beauty, enigma, and elegance. Achieved primarily through the photographer's mastery of the soft-focus camera technique, they immediately established Sarah Moon as a global cult-status photographer whose Romantic, feminine sensibility and imagery go against the contemporary trend and remain entirely and inimitably her own. An absolute "must-have" title for Sarah Moon collectors. This title is a cult photography classic. This is one of very few copies of the true First Edition/First Printing still available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a beauty. Please note: The book is available in multiple subsequent editions, which all look like the true first, but are not. A rare copy thus. 81 tinted plates. Winner of The Grand Prize of the Bologna International Book Fair in 1983 for "Little Red Riding Hood", the only photographer ever to win the award. One of the finest artist/photographers of our time. A fine collectible copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER SARAH MOON TITLES IN OUR CATALOG) ISBN 4891942894. Bookseller Inventory # 19137
