Book Description New York City, NY: Conde Nast Publications, 1983. Hardcover. Condition: Fine. Dust Jacket Condition: Fine. 1st Edition. 1st Printing. Signed. 101 pages. Published in 1983. Retrospective collection of the photographer's work. One of the most beautiful photography books of the 20th century. Limited Edition of 1500 numbered and signed copies. The first and only edition. Published as a hardcover original only, the book was not commercially distributed and given only to friends, colleagues, and supporters of the photographer and the publisher. There is no ISBN. The Limited Edition is now rare. A brilliant production by Arthur Elgort and Steve Hiett: Oversize-volume format. Linen cloth boards with black titles embossed on spine, as issued. Photographs and brief text by Arthur Elgort. List of Plates And Credits appended at the end. Printed in gravure on pristine-white, thick coated stock paper in the United States to the highest standards. The reproduction quality is outstanding in every respect: Each gravure plate is palpably rich and warm. In wraparound pictorial DJ, which features "Wendy Whitelaw, Park Avenue, July 1981", as issued. Presents Arthur Elgort's "Personal Fashion Pictures". The full range of the photographer's work: Fashion photographs, portraits, snapshots, nudes, and semi-abstract work. Fashion remains Arthur Elgort's passion. While he took lovely photographs of just about everything else, in this book at least, he sees them all from his personal perspective as Fashion Everywhere, that is to say, Beauty Everywhere (hence the title). For Elgort, fashion is not just on the runway, it is in the streets, in people's beautiful faces and voluptuous bodies, dressed or undressed, male or female, as seen by him and captured for posterity by the camera. Some of the most beautiful sequences in the book are his photographs of Balanchine and his New York City Ballet dancers, in rehearsal and posing imperiously before the camera, immobile just this once. His single most famous photograph (of the fashion model Wendy Whitelaw) is proof of fashion's inherent sex appeal: Elgort photographs Whitelaw from behind, the right sleeve of her Azzedine Alaia dress casually off her shoulder. The image has been copied innumerable times by other photographers without credit ever being given to Elgort (whose fame has now also been somewhat eclipsed, and he doesn't mind, by his son Ansel, the Hollywood actor/heartthrob). The photograph of the Dutch model Piet Houtenbous and his son frolicking in the nude offers a glimpse of pure joy. An absolute "must-have" title for Arthur Elgort collectors. This copy is one of the Limited Edition, indicated/numbered as such on the Back Limitation Page. It is very prominently and beautifully signed in black ink-pen by Arthur Elgort. This title is a photography book classic. This is one of very few copies of the Limited Edition still available online and despite its imperfection (slight wear on the DJ edges and spine, but it's there) is still in especially fine condition: Each gravure plate is clean, crisp, and bright, a beauty. A rare signed copy thus. 72 gravure plates. One of the most brilliant photographers of the 20th century. A fine collectible copy. Signed by Author. Seller Inventory # 21665
