1st Printing. 120 pages. Published in 2000. Rare Warren Cuccurullo collectible item. Now considered a contemporary erotic photography classic. The Brazilian "G Magazine" December 2000 Issue. Pictorial softcovers, which show Warren Cuccurullo on the cover, and with titles on the cover and spine, as issued. The portfolio of Cuccurullo inside is 30 pages in all, mostly full-page color plates, accompanied by editorial text. The latter is in Portuguese, repeating well-known facts about the career of the Missing Persons and Duran Duran rock band performer. Printed on pristine-white, thick coated stock paper to the highest standards. Without DJ, as issued. Presents one of the ground-breaking male nude portfolios ever: Warren Cuccurullo. G Magazine's primary readership (G stands for "gay") is homosexual, but all of the models it has featured are mainstream, heterosexual icon/figures: Film actors, rock stars, football players and other well-known athletes, Latin-American celebrities, and fashion models. Cuccurullo remains its most sensational scoop. What makes the photographs especially noteworthy is that at the time they were taken, he was already 47 years old yet looked "body-fat-free" fit, sexy, and much better-looking than the scrawny youth who became a cult rock star in the 1970's and early-1980's. As a serious musician, Cuccurullo is The Real Thing: Apart from his full-time stints with the rock bands he is identified with, he has worked with such major artists as Frank Zappa. He appears full-frontal nude in almost every photograph, and sports a full erection in many of them. "It's looked down upon in American culture at a serious level. Every time I was nervous about it, I reminded myself that I was going to be a part of something that was going to help change those attitudes because I don't agree with those values at all. It's totally fine to show someone getting their head blown off in America, but you cannot show the male body. I think that says something about the culture" (Warren Cuccurullo). An absolute "must-have" item for Warren Cuccurullo and erotic photography collectors. This title is a landmark issue. As far as we know, this is the only copy available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a pristine beauty. Please note: It is not missing any pages, and has no sticky or stained pages. It is not dimpled, creased, worn, or torn. After all these years, it is, quite simply, the single most well-preserved and beautiful copy we have ever seen. Copies that occasionally turn up online, especially those from Brazil, are all in used ("minor wear") condition. A rare copy thus. 27 plates. One of the sexiest rock stars of our time. A fine collectible copy. Bookseller Inventory # 18918
