Book Description: Ophelia Editions, New York, 2000. Hardcover. Book Condition: Fine. Dust Jacket Condition: Fine. Cabral's Anjos Proibidos (Forbidden Angels) stands as a controversial achievement in modern photography, daring to depict taboo images of naked young girls and challenging Brazil's obscenity laws. Anjos Proibidos was first published in Brazil in 1981 with a limited edition of 500 copies. The book consisted of 24 full frontal nude photographs of Brazilian girls with the oldest model being 17. Most copies of the Brazilian Edition were confiscated and destroyed by the government because they found the subject matter objectionable. Cabral paid dearly for his artistic statement. His book was burned, his negatives confiscated, his studio shut down, and he and his gallery sued by the Brazilian Government for presenting minors as objects of sensuality. Cabral eventually won the lawsuits and is today considered one of the world¿s great photographers of the female nude. This is the very scarce Ophelia Editions, New York, published in 2000. This edition includes all 51 of the photographs that comprised the Forbidden Angels collection. The book is an elegant production by Alaistair Johnson printed on thick coated stock paper by Toppan Printing Company in Tokyo, Japan. The book has rich purple hard boards with metallic-silver titles embossed on the spine covered by a photographic dust jacket. The dust jacket has been wrapped in archival mylar for additional protection. Both the book and dust jacket are in FINE condition. Bookseller Inventory # 000013

Book Description: New York City, NY: Ophelia Editions, 2000. Hardcover. Book Condition: As New. Dust Jacket Condition: As New. 1st Edition. 1st Printing. 72 pages. Published in 2000. Revised And Expanded Edition of the photographer's collection of female nudes. One of the most beautiful and most controversial erotic art photography books of our time. The first appearance of the title in the United States. Precedes and should not be confused with all other subsequent editions. Published in a very small and limited print run as a hardcover original only. The First Edition is now very rare. An austerely elegant production by Alaistair Johnson: Oversize-volume format. Hard boards with metallic-silver titles embossed on spine, as issued. Photographs by Fabio Cabral. Introduction by Lawrence A. Stanley. Printed on thick coated stock paper in Tokyo, Japan to the highest standards. In publisher's original shrinkwrap. In pictorial DJ with black titles on the cover and spine, as issued. Presents Fabio Cabral's "Anjos Proibidos". "The angels in these photographs are so-called because they do not appear to be of this world, the adult world, in which they have been captured. Instead they inhabit a realm of sensuality that is still in the process of becoming. They are forbidden because, having been fleetingly captured, they must be freed again to return to that realm to which they belong" (Publisher's blurb). Cabral paid dearly for wanting to capture his otherworldly angels, however fleetingly, on film. In Brazil, his book was burned, the negatives confiscated and damaged, his studio shut down, and he and his gallery sued by the Government. After winning his case, he had problems all over again with the American publication, this time for arbitrary reasons (one of the models, back to earth and now full-grown, felt her privacy was violated). Hauled back into court, Cabral ultimately prevailed. By then, the damage, which was the authorities' sole intention, had been done, effectively rendering his book unavailable to the mass market. As such, it is, of course, the quintessential collector's item. Anyone who has seen Bruce Weber's "O Rio De Janeiro" or Mario Testino's "Any Objections?", to mention only two titles in what is now a crowded library on Beautiful Brazil, will surely find all this amusing. The late great fashion designer Gianni Versace considered the Brazilians as the world's most beautiful people (so does All-American hero Tom Brady, who married the Brazilian supermodel Gisele Bundchen, a fixture on the international fashion scene since she was a teenager). Since Versace was from Italy, where the idea and actual presence of youthful beauty have been celebrated and depicted since the Renaissance, his judgment was provocative and controversial in a different way. Cabral's problems did not stem from the fact that Brazil is Roman Catholic and has had a long history of authoritarian rule. It is because compared to Bruce Weber, Mario Testino, and Gianni Versace, he is almost completely unknown, with no socially prominent supporters, and even less money. The Brazilian Edition contained 24 images. The Complete Series, which includes another 27 plates, is presented in this edition only. An absolute "must-have" title for erotic art photography collectors. This title is now highly collectible. This is one of very few copies of the First American Edition/First Printing still available online, is still in the publisher's original shrinkwrap, and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a pristine beauty. Almost all other copies available online have major flaws because they have been pored over repeatedly. A rare copy thus. 51 duotone plates. A fine collectible copy. ISBN 1888425172. no.

Book Description: Itamarati Grafica e Editora, (Ipirangia, Sao Paulo, Brazil, 1991. Hardcover. First edition. Small oblong quarto. Very brief text in Portuguese. Twenty-four photographic images. Fine in just about fine dustwrapper with a small smudge on the rear panel. An exceptionally rare book of nude photography of adolescent Brazilian girls, published to accompany an exhibition of photographs in Sao Paulo. The devoutly Roman Catholic Brazilian government authorities seized and then destroyed 236 copies of the 500 copy run of this title just a week after its publication. Police raided Cabral's studio, gallery, and printer, and confiscated his negatives and existing prints of the photographs. After two years and legal vindication, Cabral received his negatives back, although in varying degrees of damage.The American edition, titled *Anjos Proibidos: Forbidden Angels*, and published by Ophelia Editions in 2000, with 27 additional photographs was again suppressed when one of the models, now grown to adulthood, sued for invasion of privacy. Despite the publisher's eventual victory in the lawsuit, the book was still effectively suppressed, and when it now appears on the secondary market, it invariably commands four figures.[WITH] publisher's maquette and proofs for the American edition, as follows: 1. a full set of printer's "blue" proofs for the photos, text, and dustwrapper on blue proofing paper; 2. a full set of same on glossy paper; and 3. a full set of the folded and gathered sheets on glossy paper, laid into a proof of the dustwrapper.A rare book, with unique accompanying material. Provenance on request. *OCLC* locates two copies of the American edition, and no copies of the Brazilian edition. Bookseller Inventory # 99192
