Book Condition: As New
Dust Jacket Condition: As New
Edition: 1st Edition.
1st Printing. Unpaginated. Published in 2002. Exhibition Catalog. Retrospective collection of black-and-white photographs. One of the most beautiful art photography books of our time. The first and only edition. Published in a tiny print run as a hardcover original only. There is no ISBN. The Exhibition Catalog is now scarce. An austerely elegant production by Blindspot: Oversize-volume format. Pale green cloth boards with titles on cover and spine, as issued. Photographs by Artur Nikodem. Essay by Monika Faber in the German original and felicitous English translation. Printed on pristine-white, thick uncoated stock paper in Italy to the highest standards. In matching pale green DJ with titles on the cover and spine, as issued. Published on the occasion of the landmark exhibition held at the Robert Mann Gallery New York City in 2002. Presents, in a beautiful keepsake of a catalog, Artur Nikodem's exquisite black-and-white photographs. These gem-like prints are reproduced at actual size in the center of each page. The prints are very small indeed at 2.5 X 2.5 inches, with a few at 3 X 5 inches. All of them, taken between 1914 and 1930, are lovely, especially those of Barbara, the nude model who became his muse and finally, his wife. "She exudes a smoky sensuality all the more potent because Nikodem doesn't distract us with stylized poses or superfluous props. As if taking a cue from Stieglitz vis-a-vis O'Keeffe, Nikodem made love to Barbara with his camera" (Monika Faber). An absolute "must-have" title for Artur Nikodem collectors. This title is an art photography classic. This is one of very few copies of the Exhibition Catalog still available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a pristine beauty. Please note: All other copies available online have major flaws. A rare copy htus. 21 plates. One of the finest photographers of the 20th century. A fine copy. Bookseller Inventory # 19785
