About this Item: New York City, NY: Abbeville Press, 1994. Hardcover. Condition: Fine. Dust Jacket Condition: Fine. 1st Edition. 1st Printing. Unpaginated. Published in 1994. The artist/photographer's collection of photographs on subject. The First Hardcover Edition. Precedes and should not be confused with the Softcover Edition. Published in a small and limited first print run as a hardcover original only. The First Edition is now scarce. A brilliant production by Victor Skrebneski: Oversize-volume format. Pictorial hard boards with titles on spine, as issued. Photographs by Skrebneski. Text by John von Rhein and Andrew Porter, the former music critic of The New Yorker Magazine, and the greatest writer on opera of our time. Glossy red endpapers, which brilliantly emulate the opera house's legendary red carpet. Printed on thick coated stock paper in Hong Kong to the highest standards. In matching pictorial DJ with titles on the cover and spine, as issued. Presents Skrebneski's "Bravi!". Loving tribute to the ardor, beauty, and glamor of opera. The artist/photographer's homage to art-as-ecstasy celebrates in particular one of the world's greatest opera companies, The Lyric Opera of Chicago. Lavishly illustrated with black-and-white photographs of eleven opera stars as well as conductors, designers, directors, and a magnificent portfolio of production photographs taken between 1981 and 1994. "When you look at these wonderful pictures, I believe you can still hear the music, and you can still feel the electricity that must have existed in the house when the curtain went up. One of the most beautiful books about opera ever created" (Placido Domingo). Skrebneski's devotion to his adopted city is profound: He has also published books on its Film Festival ("Moving Pictures", 2004), its legendary theatre company ("Steppenwolf 25", 2004), and its legendary night life ("Richard's Bar", 2007), all of them iconic Chicago/American institutions. At his very best, Skrebneski is ranked with Richard Avedon and Irving Penn as a fashion, lifestyle, and portrait photographer. As a male and female nude photographer, he is firmly grounded in the great tradition of Horst and George Platt Lynes. The late great fashion designer Hubert de Givenchy paid Skrebneski the ultimate tribute anyone could hope for when he called the latter "an artist, not just a photographer". An absolute "must-have" title for Skrebneski collectors and opera lovers. This title is a photography classic. This is one of few copies of the First Hardcover Edition/First Printing still available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a pristine beauty. Please note: Many copies available online have major flaws. A rare copy thus. Lavishly illustrated with photographic plates. One of the greatest artist/photographers of our time. A fine copy.

About this Item: New York City, NY: Abbeville Press, 1995. Hardcover. Condition: Fine. Dust Jacket Condition: Fine. 1st Edition. 1st Printing. 176 pages. Published in 1995. Retrospective collection of color photographs, with accompanying text. The artist/photographer's definitive book on high fashion. The First Hardcover Edition. Precedes and should not be confused with all other subsequent editions, particularly the Softcover Edition. Published in a small and limited first print run as a hardcover original only. The First Edition is now scarce. A brilliant production by Abbeville Press: Oversize-volume format. Gray cloth boards with titles embossed on cover and printed in metallic-silver on spine, as issued. Photographs by Skrebneski. Text by the great fashion journalist Laura Jacobs. Invaluable Index appended at the end. Printed on pristine-white, thick glossy stock paper in the United States to the highest standards. In pictorial DJ with titles on the cover and spine, as issued. Presents Skrebneski's "The Art of Haute Couture". Some of the most magnificent fashion photographs ever taken: High Fashion in all its beauty and glory. Skrebneski goes through every element as if he were a couturier himself: Line, texture, drape, pleat, sweep, and volume as well as ornament, illusion, theater, and drama. Cristobal Balenciaga, perhaps the greatest couturier of the 20th century, once said that anyone can be a fashion merchandiser/designer, even a very good and successful one. But not everyone (who is a fashion designer) can be a couturier (in fact, most fashion people are not). A couturier is a different creator altogether: He (or she) is someone who maintains an atelier, conceives, and then realizes one-of-a-kind dresses, evening gowns, and matching accessories. He (or she) makes them the old-fashioned way: By hand, using the richest fabrics, and harnessing the expertise of a perfectionist team of artisans, the end result being clothes characterized by the most exquisite craftsmanship and elegance of design, a testament to a now-vanished art that museums like the Metropolitan Museum of Art New York are trying to preserve for posterity through its Permanent Collections and lavish, annual retrospective exhibitions. Skrebneski and Laura Jacobs examine the ways a great couturier actually works: Balenciaga, Chanel, Hubert de Givenchy, Yves Saint Laurent, and Vera Wang, among a few others, are this great artist/photographer's exemplars of haute couture, that is to say, the transformation of mere fashion into high fashion. An absolute "must-have" title for Skrebneski and fashion collectors. This title is a late-modern classic. This is one of few copies of the First Hardcover Edition/First Printing still available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a pristine beauty. A scarce copy thus. Lavishly illustrated with color plates. One of the greatest artist/photographers of our time. A fine copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER SKREBNESKI TITLES IN OUR CATALOG) ISBN 0789200228. no.

About this Item: Chicago, IL: Cinema/Chicago, 2004. Hardcover. Condition: As New. 1st Edition. 1st Printing. 244 pages. Published in 2004. The artist/photographer's retrospective collection on subject. The first and only edition. Published in a small and limited print run as a hardcover original only. The First Edition is now rare. A brilliant production by Victor Skrebneski and Michael Kutza: Oversize-volume format. Pictorial hard boards, which feature one of the most celebrated Festival posters, with red and black titles on the cover and spine, as issued. Photographs by Victor Skrebneski. They are presented in eight separate yet seamlessly linked parts: "Stars", "Posters", "Directors", "Critics", "The Board", "Flash Back!", and "Flash Forward!". There are also vintage photographs, taken by numerous photojournalists, that Skrebneski included in the book. Introduction, "Forward Moving Pictures!", by Roger Ebert. Essays by John Russell Taylor on the sexy posters and Michael Kutza on the Festival's history. Printed on thick coated stock paper in Italy to the highest standards. Without DJ, as issued. Published on the occasion of the Festival's 40th Anniversary. Presents Skrebneski's "Moving Pictures!". A triumphant achievement. If Cannes is about glamor; New York, intellectual seriousness; and Sundance, the "indie-film" spirit, Chicago is about the sheer diversity of global cinema. Many of the world's greatest films were first shown here. It is a tribute to Skrebneski's merchandising genius that he created posters which deliberately emphasized sex appeal, to draw attention to the Festival and get people interested in the films screened: It's cool and sexy to watch "foreign" films. The stars who have appeared at the Festival include Faye Dunaway, John Travolta, Cindy Crawford, Liv Ullmann, Tom Cruise, Sharon Stone, Richard Gere, and Robin Williams, among many others. The directors include Francois Truffaut, Patrice Chereau, Ming Lang Tsai, Oliver Stone, and Orson Welles, among many others. For his posters, Skrebneski picked only the best models: Dolph Lundgren, Iman, Marcus Schenkenburg, The Brewer Twins, and David Sojka, in solo, duo, trio, and group nude portraits. Skrebneski's devotion to his adopted city is profound: He has also published books on the world-class Lyric Opera of Chicago ("Bravi!", 1994), its legendary theatre company ("Steppenwolf 25", 2004), and its legendary night life ("Richard's Bar", 2007), all of them iconic Chicago/American institutions.

This title is a contemporary photography classic. This is one of very few copies of the First Hardcover Edition/First Printing still available online and has no flaws, a pristine beauty. Please note: Copies from the Chicago International Film Festival's website command $500 because of the book's rarity. No kidding. Most copies available online have major flaws because they have been pored over again and again. This is surely an accessible and lovely alternative. A rare copy thus. Lavishly illustrated with photographic plates. One of the greatest artist/photographers of our time. A flawless copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER VICTOR SKREBNESKI TITLES IN OUR CATALOG) ISBN 0976326507. no.

It is signed directly on the page itself, not on a tipped-in page. It glows beautifully against the light. His signature on the Back Page and the special marker he uses have become Skrebneski trademarks. This title is a photography classic. This is one of few such signed copies of the First Hardcover Edition/First Printing still available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a pristine beauty. Please note: Many copies available online have major flaws. A rare signed copy thus. Lavishly illustrated with photographic plates. One of the greatest artist/photographers of our time.

It is a tribute to Skrebneski's merchandising genius that he created posters which deliberately emphasized sex appeal, to draw attention to the Festival and get people interested in the films screened: It's cool and sexy to watch "foreign" films. The stars who have appeared at the Festival include Faye Dunaway, John Travolta, Cindy Crawford, Liv Ullmann, Tom Cruise, Sharon Stone, Richard Gere, and Robin Williams, among many others. The directors include Francois Truffaut, Patrice Chereau, Ming Lang Tsai, Oliver Stone, and Orson Welles, among many others. For his posters, Skrebneski picked only the best models: Dolph Lundgren, Iman, Marcus Schenkenburg, The Brewer Twins, and David Sojka, in solo, duo, trio, and group nude portraits. Skrebneski's devotion to his adopted city is profound: He has also published books on the world-class Lyric Opera of Chicago ("Bravi!", 1994), its legendary theatre company ("Steppenwolf 25", 2004), and its legendary night life ("Richard's Bar", 2007), all of them iconic Chicago/American institutions. At his very best, Skrebneski is ranked with Richard Avedon and Irving Penn as a fashion, lifestyle, and portrait photographer. As a male and female nude photographer, he is firmly grounded in the great tradition of Horst and George Platt Lynes. The late great fashion designer Hubert de Givenchy paid Skrebneski the ultimate tribute anyone could hope for when he called the latter "an artist, not just a photographer". Cinema is the art of the 20th century, and it is celebrated by Skrebneski with love and reverence. An absolute "must-have" title for Skrebneski and cinephile collectors. This copy is very boldly and beautifully signed, dated, and inscribed in metallic-silver pen-marker by the artist/photographer: "Paul, Thank you for liking my photographs - Victor 'I 06". Beneath his personal dedication, he also very boldly and beautifully signed the copy as "Skrebneski". It is signed directly on the page itself, not on a tipped-in page. The recipient is a Chicago-based artist and photography expert. This title is a contemporary photography classic. As far as we know, this is the only such signed, dated, and inscribed copy of the First Hardcover Edition/First Printing available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a pristine beauty. Furthermore, it is the only copy we have ever seen in which Skrebneski signed with his full name (instead of just his "branded" surname), something he very rarely did. Please note: Copies from the Chicago International Film Festival's website command $500 because of the book's rarity. No kidding. Most copies available online have major flaws because they have been pored over again and again. This is surely an accessible and lovely alternative. A rare signed copy thus. Lavishly illustrated with photographic plates. One of the greatest artist/photograp. Signed by Author. Seller Inventory # 20233

About this Item: Zurich, Switzerland: Editions Stemmle, 1999. Hardcover. Condition: Fine. Dust Jacket Condition: Fine. 1st Edition. 1st Printing. Signed. 191 pages. Published in 1999. Landmark retrospective collection of photographs. One of Victor Skrebneski's finest achievements. 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. A brilliant production by Victor Skrebneski and Editions Stemmle: Oversize-volume format. Black hard boards with white titles embossed on cover and spine, as issued. Photographs by Victor Skrebneski. Essays by Denise Miller and Robert Sobieszek. The essays are the best ever written on Skrebneski. List of Plates and Biography appended at the end. Printed on glossy stock paper in Switzerland to the highest standards. In pictorial DJ with black titles on the cover and spine, as issued. Published on the occasion of Skrebneski Studio Chicago's 50th Year Anniversary celebration in 1999. Presents, in one handsome volume, Skrebneski's achievement as an artist/photographer. Here is a glittering array of photographs, spanning - and celebrating - the second half of the century (1949-1999). Skrebneski's career took off at the very same time that America's did: This was the period when his beloved city, Chicago, became a world-class city, and just as important to Skrebneski personally, his adopted country became the undisputed superpower of the world. His story is THE story of the last fifty years of the 20th century: After many years of painful struggle as a Polish exile, Skrebneski fled Europe, sought and found refuge in the United States, where he lives to this day. Here are his dramatically lit celebrity portraits; iconic fashion tableaux-photographs; provocative and Surrealist experimental compositions; sensual, full-frontal male and female nudes as well as previously unseen images from his private collection. While he is celebrated for his masterly, Classical use of light and shadow, his images, not just his nudes, are erotic, brimming with Modernist playfulness, sensuality, and vitality in a way that contemporary art photography consciously avoids (because it cannot be faked, you are either a sexual being or not) and is therefore its self-inflicted loss. Skrebneski turned 85 in 2014 and published a memento of his long life and nearly just-as-long, 65-year-old career, "Ageing". In it, he shows photographs of himself through the years with some of the Beautiful People he photographed, an intimate journal of priceless "selfies", if you will. "The art of Victor Skrebneski is sublime, provocative, and completely beautiful" (Hubert de Givenchy). An absolute "must-have" title for Skrebneski collectors. This copy is very boldly and beautifully signed in metallic-silver pen-marker on his self-portrait, the book's very last image, shown at the back, by Skrebneski. His signature glows against the light. This title is a modern photography 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 copy. A rare signed copy thus. 130 duotone, 19 color plates. One of the greatest artist/photographers of our time. A fine collectible copy.

About this Item: Chicago, IL: Skrebneski Studios, 2007. Hardcover. Condition: Fine. Dust Jacket Condition: Fine. 1st Edition. 1st Printing. Signed. 350 pages. Published in 2007. Retrospective collection of photographs, presented as an Artist Book. Limited Edition of 2500 numbered copies. The first and only edition. The book was not commercially distributed. There is no ISBN. The Limited Edition is now rare. A brilliant production by Skrebneski: Oversize-volume format. Glossy pictorial hard boards with white titles on cover and spine, as issued. Photographs by Skrebneski. Text by Anthony Jones of The Art Institute of Chicago. Printed on pristine-white, thick coated stock paper in Germany to the highest standards. In matching pictorial DJ with white titles on the cover and spine, as issued. Presents, in a Limited Edition format, "Skrebneski Seduced". His third and possibly final retrospective volume. It updates and magnifies his two previous collections, "Black White And Color" (1989) and "Skrebneski: The First Fifty Years" (1999). While it reproduces some of his now-classic images, the collection is replete with never-before-published, brilliantly sustained work. "Throughout his life, Victor Skrebneski has had an enduring love for the big Modern Movements in the visual arts - Surrealism, Realism, Cubism, Dada - and for the individual artists and photographers whose work was part of those Movements. He was happy to be seduced by them. The photographer honors and celebrates the artists whose work he cherishes and pays homage to them for the inspiration they provided" (Anthony Jones). While he is celebrated for his masterly, Classical use of light and shadow, his images, not just his nudes, are erotic, brimming with Modernist playfulness, sensuality, and vitality in a way that contemporary art photography consciously avoids (because it cannot be faked, you are either a sexual being or not) and is therefore its self-inflicted loss. Skrebneski turned 85 in 2014 and published a memento of his long life and nearly just-as-long, 65-year-old career, "Ageing". In it, he shows photographs of himself through the years with some of the Beautiful People he photographed (that he seduced), an intimate journal of priceless "selfies", if you will. "The art of Victor Skrebneski is sublime, provocative, and completely beautiful" (Hubert de Givenchy). An absolute "must-have" title for Skrebneski collectors. This copy is one of the Limited Edition, indicated/numbered as such in red pen on the Front Limitation Page. It is very boldly and beautifully signed and dated (in the year of publication) in metallic-silver pen-marker at the back by Skrebneski. This title is a modern photography classic. As far as we know, this is the only such signed and dated copy of the Limited Edition available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a pristine beauty. While this is a fairly recent title when compared to Skrebneski's previous retrospective volumes, it is his rarest book because it was not commercially distributed. Skrebneski did not sign most copies of the book. A rare signed copy thus. 200 plates. One of the greatest artist/photographers of our time. A fine collectible copy.

About this Item: Boston, MA: Bulfinch Press, 1989. Hardcover. Condition: Fine. Dust Jacket Condition: Fine. 1st Edition. 1st Printing. Signed. 225 pages. Published in 1989. Retrospective collection of photographs presented as an Artist Book. One of Skrebneski's finest achievements. 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. A brilliant production by Skrebneski: Oversize-volume format. Glossy pictorial hard boards, which brilliantly reproduce the negatives of the photographs shown on the DJ front and back covers, as issued. Photographs by Skrebneski. Text by Frank Zachary, the legendary Editor-in-Chief of Town and Country Magazine, and Skrebneski scholar Anthony Jones of The Art Institute of Chicago. Printed on pristine-white, thick coated stock paper in Italy to the highest standards. In pictorial DJ, which beautifully reproduces the actual photographs whose negatives are shown on the front and back boards, and red titles on the cover and spine, as issued. Presents Skrebneski's "Black White & Color". Definitive artistic statement in mid-career (and after an unbroken string of immensely successful exhibitions in Europe and the United States). The collection runs the whole gamut of Skrebneski's oeuvre and achievement spanning four decades (1950-1989). His finest and most representative images are sumptuously reproduced and brilliantly sequenced as a visual symphony (Prologue; First Movement; Second Movement; Third Movement; Fourth Movement; and Coda) : Homage-images of Europe and her artistic legacy, iconic Hollywood celebrity portraits, ground-breaking global fashion photographs, provocative experimental compositions in the overtly Surrealist and Modernist veins, palpably erotic male and female nudes, and previously unseen portraits from his personal collection. Skrebneski's photographs of Paris are deliberately blurred and emit not just light but radiance. They are deeply evocative, nostalgic, and resonant (he trained, studied, and worked in the great city before moving to the United States), suggesting the evanescence of memory and desire. The male and female nudes (the collection ends with a long sequence of austere male nudes) are dramatically lit and sculptural (rather than painterly), an approach to the nude that has influenced a whole generation of photographers. The point of the title is quite simple: Unlike most photographers (and this is a particularly fascinating fact about photography in general), Skrebneski was equally a Master of black-and-white and color. At his very best, Skrebneski is ranked with Richard Avedon and Irving Penn as a fashion, lifestyle, and portrait photographer. As a male and female nude photographer, he is firmly grounded in the great tradition of Horst and George Platt Lynes. The late great fashion designer Hubert de Givenchy paid Skrebneski the ultimate tribute anyone could hope for when he called the latter "an artist, not just a photographer". An absolute "must-have" title for Skrebneski collectors. This copy is very boldly and beautifully signed in black pen-marker on the very last page by Skrebneski. It is signed directly on the page itself, not on a tipped-in page. The artist/photographer usually signs on the back of his books as a trademark. He used a black pen-marker (instead of his signature metallic-silver sharpie) because unlike the preceding pages, the last page is in thick and uncoated stock paper. This title is an erotic art photography classic. This is one of very few such signed copies of the First Hardcover Edition/First Printing still available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a pristine beauty. Please note: Most copies available online have serious flaws. A rare signed copy thus. 67 duotone, 42 color plates. One of the greatest artist/photographers of our time. A fine collectible copy.
