About this Item

First Edition. From the library of the great film director and art collector Billy Wilder, signed and inscribed by the author / photographer Helmut Newton to Mr. Wilder and his wife Audrey. Inscribed on the title page: “For Billy and Audrey with love from Helmut. See page 147 for the only interesting photo in this book. Berlin, 25.5.1987.” And on the front flyleaf, Newton writes to the Wilders: “Fur der Herr und Frau Professor.” Newton’s inscription about page 147 refers to his black & white portrait of Billy and Audrey Wilder taken in Los Angeles in 1985, showing Billy reclining on a chaise looking into the camera and playfully pulling down a long double strand of pearls which Audrey is wearing as she stands next to the chaise looking down at Billy. Oversize art book format. Text in German. Fine copy in a fine dust jacket. A collection of provocative photographs of film celebrities, and art, social, music, and literary personalities, and self-portraits by Helmut Newton, in full-color and in black & white.
