About this Item: New York City, NY: PowerHouse Books, 2000. Hardcover. Condition: Fine. 1st Edition. 1st Printing. Signed. 288 pages. Published in 2000. Landmark collection of male nudes. Now considered a contemporary erotic art photography classic. Deluxe Slipcased Edition of 80 numbered and signed copies. Published simultaneously with the first regular trade edition. Superior in every respect to and should not be confused with the 2000 and 2004 Editions. The Deluxe Edition is now rare. A magnificent production by Greg Gorman and Daniel Power: Full leather boards with titles embossed on the spine, as issued. Photographic reproduction pasted in front. Photographs and Introduction by Greg Gorman. Preface by Sir Elton John, the world's single largest private collector of erotic art photography. Afterword by John Hurt. Acknowledgments, Biography, and List of Exhibitions appended at the end. Original 7 X 9 inch photographic print laid into the book. Flesh-toned slipcase with gilt titles embossed on one side. Printed on pristine-white, thick coated stock paper in the United States to the highest standards. Without DJ, as issued. Presents, in its Deluxe Edition format, Greg Gorman's "As I See It". The photographer's "summing-up" collection on the male nude, his single greatest passion. Almost all of the portraits are full-frontal and include such celebrities as Christopher Atkins, Alexis Arquette, Nicholas Gonzalez, Josh Duhamel, Aaron Long, Tony Ward, Jack Welsh, and Jeff Clark, among so many others. Also has the now-celebrated suite of photographs featuring the shy but well-endowed model Speedy. Greg Gorman has said that what he wanted to capture permanently in pictures is not the muscular, beefy type, but someone with a lean, supple, and clean-shaven body, regardless of his age. Most of the men in this collection are in their twenties, but someone like Christopher Atkins is in his forties yet still has the "Blue Lagoon" good looks and physique that catapulted him to international stardom. For Gorman, the lean, sinewy man is the epitome of everything that makes the male specimen simply irresistible. By his own admission, Greg Gorman considers this to be his best collection thus far. An absolute "must-have" title for Greg Gorman collectors. This copy is one of the Deluxe Slipcased Edition, indicated/numbered as such on the 7 X 9 inch original photographic print that comes with it. The latter is very boldly and beautifully numbered and signed in pencil on verso by Greg Gorman. The beautifully toned print of the model/actor Ned Brower is often framed and sold separately from the book for the same price as (or even more than) the Deluxe Edition itself. Please note: Greg Gorman signed the print, NOT the book, as is the custom with the publisher. This title is a contemporary erotic art photography classic. This is the one of very few copies of the Deluxe Slipcased Edition still available online and has no flaws, a pristine beauty. A rare signed copy thus. 212 tritone plates, 1 original print. One of the finest American photographers of our time. A flawless collectible copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER GREG GORMAN TITLES IN OUR CATALOG) ISBN 1576870871. Signed by Author. Seller Inventory # 9047
