Presents Paul Jasmin's "Hollywood Cowboy". Some of the artist/photographer's finest images, black-and-white and full-color photographs, many of them sexually explicit, all of them tenderly recalling a bygone era, namely the last two decades of the 20th century. Paul Jasmin's work and unique artistic personality are known to and revered by friends, colleagues, and admirers who fondly call him "Jazz". "Paul Jasmin's photographs are dreamy tableaux that underscore a fascination with youthful play and innocence. Included in this long-awaited collection are playful nudes, portraits of friends and colleagues from the entertainment and art worlds, fashion shoots, and restful travel images that recall 19th-century Romanticism. An influence on numerous artists, Jasmin's photographs are both rarefied and accessible. Surveys the full depth of this truly remarkable artist" (Publisher's blurb). An absolute "must-have" title for Paul Jasmin collectors. This copy is very prominently and beautifully signed, dated (in the year of publication), and inscribed in black pen on the half-title page by Paul Jasmin. It is signed diretcly on the page itself, not on a tipped-in page. This is the copy of Modern Gallery Los Angeles, and laid-in are the gallery's Souvenir Materials: A Souvenir Postcard of the Opening Night Reception and the actual Price List of the prints. This title is now collectible. As far as we know, this is the only such signed copy with Souvenir Materials of the First Hardcover Edition/First Printing available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, pristine beauties. A rare set thus. Lavishly illustrated with duotone and color plates presented "free-form", as an extended, jazzy riff. One of the finest American artist/photographers of our time. A fine set.
