Item Description: Los Angeles, CA: Kensington Road Studio, 1987. Soft cover. Book Condition: As New. 1st Edition. 1st Printing. 3 pages. Published in 1987. Rare David Burrill and Kensington Road Studio collectible set. Three (3) original vintage color photographic prints of David Burrill, one of the most popular and most good-looking male-nude models of our time, as photographed by Kensington Road Studio of Los Angeles. The prints measure 5 X 7 inches, are "bleed", and are original vintage prints, reproduced on archival FujiColor photographic paper. Each is encased in a protective plastic sheet. Each photograph shows David Burrill posing full-frontal nude, shot with saturated lighting. Kensington Road Studio's grittiness, explicitness, and brazen-ness have strongly influenced the work of such photographers as Terry Richardson, especially its unpretentious, "come-and-get-it", "what-are-you-waiting-for" look. As Richardson has noted, there is a tenderness, sweetness, and even an innocence about these photographs that the more artistically-inclined photographers of both the male and female nudes looked down upon and that our Terry almost singlehandedly, pun not intended, revived/made mainstream in his magazine, fashion/lifestyle, and gallery work. This is the genuine article, an absolute "must-have" collectible, not just memorabilia, item for David Burrill and male erotic art photography collectors. These original vintage color photographic prints are now collectible. As far as we know, this is the only set available online, is eminently suitable for framing, and has no flaws, pristine beauties. A rare set thus. One of the iconic American male-nude models of the 20th century. A flawless set. (SEE ALSO JOE DALESSANDRO, BRUCE OF LOS ANGELES, AND BLAKE PALMER TITLES IN OUR CATALOG). no.

Women, he believed, were best suited to nuture children and became the Kindergarteners (teachers) for his schools. As such, the Froebel Kindergarten offered the first significant careers for women outside the home. At that time, women were not expected (or often allowed) to work professionally. The Kindergarten attracted ambitious, intelligent women, who received advanced educations and developed businesses of their own. The more famous women who advanced Froebel’s cause include Helen Keller, Kate Douglas Wiggin, Elizabeth Peabody, Phoebe Hearst, Mrs. Leland Stanford, Mrs. Grover Cleveland, Elizabeth Harrison.".
