Printed on pristine-white, thick coated stock paper in Italy to the highest standards. In black DJ with white titles on the cover and spine, as issued. Presents Jim French's "Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Sailor". A treasure trove of Polaroid male nudes. "All the Polaroid images in this volume were taken as research for Luger/Colt drawings. Soon after the Polaroid camera was introduced to the public, I purchased one and found it very helpful in creating my ever increasingly detailed drawings" (Jim French). French studied with the great painter Franz Kline, began his career as a painter and illustrator, before turning full-time to photography. The Classical lineage shows in even the most naughty and brazen photographs. Half, if not more than half, of the trick to all great male (and female) nude photography is the right choice of model. The men in this collection, with beautiful, chiseled faces, perfect physiques, and dare one say it, large endowments, were all born to be photographed. An absolute "must-have" title for Jim French and erotic art photography collectors. This copy is very boldly and beautifully signed in black pen-marker on the title page by Jim French. It is signed directly on the page itself, not on a tipped-in page. His elaborate signature is a work of art in itself. This title is an erotic art photography classic. As far as we know, this is the only such signed copy of the Limited Edition available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a pristine beauty. A rare signed copy thus. 116 plates. One of the finest American photographers of our time. A fine collectible copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER BRUCE WEBER TITLES IN OUR CATALOG) ISBN 0615782612.
