Available from more sellers
1st Printing. 184 pages. Published in 1994. Collection of erotic male portraits and one male nude. One of the finest titles ever published by Bruno Gmunder Verlag, which specializes in male nude photography. The true First Edition. Precedes and should not be confused with all other subsequent editions, particularly the 1995, 1998, and 2002 Editions. Published in a tiny first print run as a softcover original only. The First Edition is now rare. A brilliant production by RV Lebeaupin and Michael Taubenheim: Oversize-volume format. Pictorial softcovers with titles on the cover and spine, as issued. Photographs and brief Afterword by RV Lebeaupin. List Of Models appended at the end. Printed on pristine-white, thick uncoated stock paper in Berlin to the highest standards. The reproduction quality of the photographs is warm, crisp, and bright. Without DJ, as issued. Presents RV Lebeaupin's "Photographs". A gallery of male beauty in all its glory. Except for one full-frontal nude (who also appears fully clothed in another shot), all of the subjects are partially undressed rather than completely naked, suggestively and seductively so, and making them all the more erotic. Lebeaupin's vision of male beauty (the face and the body, it has to be both, not either/or) is an extension of a larger notion about masculinity: What does it take to be a man? What makes such a man erotically and aesthetically irresistible? Lebeaupin's subjects are the living answer, specimens of masculine beauty who can compare with the best of Herb Ritts, Greg Gorman, and even Bruce Weber, all taken for his and our own pleasure. He shows that a man need not be photographed nude to be sexy. On the contrary, the less he shows of his private parts, the more he calls attention to his beauty. An absolute "must-have" title for RV Lebeaupin collectors. This title is now collectible. This is one of few copies of the 1994 true First Edition/First Printing still available online and has no flaws, a pristine beauty. We have not seen a more beautiful copy of this beautiful book. A rare copy thus. 60 duotone plates. One of the most brilliant photographers of the male form of our time. A flawless copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER COPY OF THIS TITLE IN OUR CATALOG) ISBN 386187024X.
