Description:

1st Printing. Signed. Unpaginated. Published in 1998. Collection of angelic images. One of the most beautiful art photography books of our time. The First Hardcover Edition. Precedes and should not be confused with all other subsequent editions. Published in a small and limited first print run as a hardcover original only. The First Edition is now scarce. Presents "Visions of Angels". Some of the most evocative, spiritual, and even erotic images of angels in our time. Each of the thirty-five celebrated photographers was asked to present their most personal vision of angels, with stunning and sublime results. "Images of angels have marched for centuries in the footsteps of the winged Renaissance and cherubic Victorian idealizations of angels. Bloncourt and Engelmann open new territory with fresh interpretations of these divine messengers by photographers like Carolyn Jones and Jerry Uelsmann. The photography alone would make 'Visions of Angels' a worthy tome, but the authors also juxtapose each image with the names of several different angels and their role in the cosmic order, teasing you to interpret each work in different ways. This is one book you won't leaf through casually once and tuck away on your bookshelf. It will have you captivated for hours as you ponder these earthly manifestations of heavenly creatures" (Brian Patterson). Luis Gonzalez Palma has two contributions, and they are among his most iconic images: "El Angel, 1989" and "Jaula De Ternura, 1993". Other contributors are a Who's Who of contemporary art photography: Marcia Lippman, Blake Little, Josephine Sacabo, Jock Sturges, and Joyce Tenneson, among many others. An absolute "must-have" title for Luis Gonzalez Palma and contemporary art photography collectors. This copy is very prominently and beautifully signed in black ink-pen on his Contribution by Luis Gonzalez Palma. It is signed directly on the page itself, not on a tipped-in page. This title is an art photography book classic. As far as we know, this is the only such signed copy of the First Hardcover Edition/First Printing available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a pristine beauty. A rare signed copy thus. Lavishly illustrated with duotone and color plates. Some of the greatest artist/photographers of our time. A fine copy.

About this title:

Synopsis: Here, 35 of today''s most highly regarded pho tographers were asked to submit a photo that best expresses their vision of an angel. A running list of angel names, alo ng with a description of their early duties, is included wit h each photograph. '

Review: Images of angels have marched for centuries in the footsteps of the winged Renaissance and cherubic Victorian idealizations of angels, but Bloncourt and Engelmann open new territory with fresh interpretations of these divine messengers by photographers like Carolyn Jones and Jerry Uelsmann. The ephemeral photography alone would make Visions of Angels a worthy tome, but the authors juxtapose each black-and-white image with the names of several different angels and their role in the cosmic order, highlighting significant details of the photograph, teasing you to interpret each work in 10 different ways. This is one book you won't leaf through casually once and tuck away on your top bookshelf. Visions of Angels will have you captivated for hours, as you ponder these earthly manifestations of heavenly creatures. --Brian Patterson
