In pictorial DJ, which features fashion and commercial model Josh Crosby, and titles on the cover and spine, as issued. Presents Patrick McMullan's "Men's Show". Behind-the-scenes photographs of New York's male fashion shows as only Patrick McMullan could have taken them. The photographs cover a considerable range, capturing the different moods and "feel" of a fashion show. There are tense, anxious moments, playful scenes, and others that hint at the extreme levels of competitiveness in modeling. A commentator once said that the NFL seems like the Minor League when compared to the visceral ruthlessness of the fashion modelling world. Still, the book is also about pleasure: The pleasure of undressing, dressing up, being made up, being fawned over, walking down the ramp, being ogled, being propositioned, and being photographed by the likes of Mario Testino, Bruce Weber, and Patrick McMullan. The models include Markus Schenkenberg, Joel West, Alex Lundquist, Tyson Beckford, and Mark van der Loo, to name just a few. The book is divided into six sections, each of which revolves around a major aspect of the fashion show: "Prep", "Wait", "Skin", "Glam", "Play", and "Sets". In other words, this is as much about fashion as it is a celebration of the beauty of the male face and body. McMullan dedicates his book to his mentor, the late Andy Warhol, "who I know would love this book". An absolute "must-have" title for Patrick McMullan collectors. This title is now collectible. It comes with a copy of the 5 X 9 inch Agency Model Card of the skateboarder/supermodel Josh Wald and two original 4 X 5 inch color prints of supermodels in identical Speedos. This is one of few copies of the First Hardcover Edition/First Printing still available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, bright, a pristine beauty. A rare set thus. 130 color plates. One of the most brilliant fashion and lifestyle photographers of our time. A fine copy. ISBN 3908163293. Bookseller Inventory # 13125
