1st Printing. Unpaginated. Published in 2004. Exhibition Catalog. One of the most beautiful photography books of our time. The first and only edition. Published in a tiny print run as a softcover original only. There is no ISBN. The First Edition is now scarce. A brilliant production by Gregory Wakabayashi: Regular-sized volume format. Pictorial softcovers with black titles on the covers, as issued. The book is in two reversible parts, with two different covers, one for the essay and another for the portfolio of images, and are joined at the spine of the opposite ends. Photographs by Philippe Halsman. Essay, "Halsman/Dali", by Mary Panzer. The essay is supplemented with numerous photographic examples. List of Full-Page and Doublespread Plates appended at the end of the Portfolio Section. Biographies of Philippe Halsman and Salvador Dali appended at the end of the Essay Section. Printed in quadrotone on pristine-white, thick coated stock paper by Meridian Printing in the United States to the highest standards. The reproduction quality is outstanding in its clarity, warmth, and tonal range. Without DJ, as issued. Published on the occasion of the landmark retrospective exhibition at the Howard Greenberg Gallery New York from February 6 through March 13, 2004. Presents "Halsman/Dali". A loving and lovely celebration of two Modern Masters. Revisits the unique collaboration between Philippe Halsman and Salvador Dali, which resulted in some of the latter's most unforgettable self-portraits. They capture Dali's eccentric genius and Surrealist aesthetic as only Dali's own work could possibly match. Dali's celebrated "Jump" portrait, "Dali Atomicus, 1948", is one of Halsman's most famous images, and it is reproduced here, as fresh and vital and enchanting as ever. An absolute "must-have" title for Salvador Dali and Philippe Halsman collectors. This title is now collectible. This is one of very few copies of the First Edition/First Printing still available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a pristine beauty. Please note: Even though this is an Exhibition Catalog (rather than a full-fledged book), its production quality and values are simply stunning. But the Catalog's covers are fragile. As a result, almost all other copies available online have major flaws. A rare copy thus. 16 quadrotone plates. Two of the greatest artists of the 20th century. A fine copy.
