1st Printing. Signed. 160 pages. Published in 2014. Debut retrospective collection of male nudes. One of the most beautiful erotic art photography books of our time. The First Hardcover Edition. Precedes and should not be confused with all other subsequent editions. Published in a small and limited print run as a hardcover original only. A brilliant production by Mark Lynch and Bruno Gmunder Verlag: Oversize-volume format. Pictorial hard boards with titles on spine, as issued. Photographs by Mark Lynch. Except for a brief Foreword and a Caption for each image by the photographer, there is no text. Two original color prints of the same stunningly handsome redhead model, both full-frontal nudes, the first 8 X 10 inch, the second, 10 X 15 inch in size. Printed on pristine-white, thick coated stock paper in South Korea to the highest standards. In matching pictorial DJ with titles on the cover and spine, as issued. Presents, in a lovely collectible format, Mark Lynch's "Fond Memories". Some of his finest and most representative male nudes, culled from more than twenty years of dedicated photography. "A beautiful book of male nudes taken over the years by Lynch. The models are diverse but well-chosen. Delivers a great variety of models in various states of arousal. The photos are artistic and beautiful, and the book is a real treasure to own" (Lance Leon Lennon). They are All-American natural beauties, from Texas (where, as its reputation goes, the men are bigger and better), athletes from various colleges and universities. That they are all comfortable being completely nude belies the Southern Baptist/conservative image of Texas. Perhaps, Texas is evolving indeed into a more progressive, liberal, even free-wheeling state (like say, California). The men are not "refined" or "cosmopolitan" (in the Bruce Weber vein), but it is their very shyness and their evident lack of professional experience that make them so appealing and attractive in the first place. Much praise has been lavished upon Mark Lynch's technical expertise, honed and perfected over the years, and they are well-deserved. Still, whether it's him or BW, half of all great erotic nudes is casting. These non-professional athlete/models are the cream of the crop. An absolute "must-have" title for Mark Lynch and erotic art photography collectors. This title is now collectible. This copy comes with two original color photographic prints of the same redhead model, who is "to-die-for", drop-dead gorgeous, in full-frontal nudes. Both prints (8 X 10 and 10 X 15 inch in size, respectively) are labeled and very boldly and beautifully signed on verso in black pen-marker by Mark Lynch. As far as we know, this is the only set of the First Hardcover Edition/First Printing and signed prints available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, pristine beauties. Please note: Mark Lynch did NOT sign copies of the book itself. Instead, he signed both prints. A rare set thus. Lavishly illustrated with full-page plates, 2 original color prints. One of the most brilliant American photographers of the male nude. A fine collectible set. (SEE ALSO OTHER MARK LYNCH TITLES IN OUR CATALOG) ISBN 386787672X. Bookseller Inventory # 19353
