About this Item: New York City, NY: PowerHouse Books, 1999. Soft cover. Condition: Fine. 1st Edition. 1st Printing. Signed. 158 pages. Published in 1999. Retrospective collection of the artist/photographer's films. The single most important book on the cinematic work of William Klein. The first appearance of the title in the United States. Published in a small and limited print run as a softcover original only. The First American Edition is now rare. A brilliant production by William Klein: Oversize-volume format. Pictorial softcovers with titles on the cover and spine, as issued. Photographs and film stills selected and sequenced by William Klein. Essay by Claire Clouzot. Printed on pristine-white, thick coated stock paper by EBS in Verona, Italy to the highest standards. Without DJ, as issued. Presents William Klein's "Films". The complete cinematic oeuvre of the visual artist who is much better-known as a ground-breaking photographer. By 1964, Willam Klein had completed his now-legendary series of books on cities ("New York", "Moscow", "Rome", and "Tokyo"), and felt he had said everything he wanted to say through photography. He turned his restless and inexhaustible creative energies to film-making, and spent an extended period that lasted for more than two decades (from 1965 to the 1980's), making quirkily brilliant films that now enjoy a global cult following. It takes a truly courageous and uncompromising artist to abandon one medium, after leaving his indelible mark on it, and move on to another. Just as he permanently and radically changed the way people take photographs, William Klein's films expanded and enriched the cinematic vocabulary with such pioneering films as "Broadway By Light", "Who Are You, Polly Maggoo?" , "Mr. Freedom", "Muhammad Ali The Greatest", "The Little Richard Story", and "The Messiah". One of the greatest film directors of all time praised "Broadway By Light", on Manhattan's magnificent neon-lit signs: "It is truly the very first film that needed to be made in color" (Orson Welles). Since then, many well-known photographers have branched out into film-making. Some of the more recent sensations like Larry Clark, Bruce Weber, David LaChapelle, and Anton Corbijn have either turned to making films in addition to their photographic work or abandoned photography altogether. All of them credit William Klein's pioneering example as their primary inspiration. William Klein eventually returned to photography, and is now firmly established as one of the greatest visual artists of our time. Supplemented with an insightful essay by Claire Clouzot, this is the definitive book on William Klein's film work, whose recognition is long overdue. An absolute "must-have" title for William Klein collectors. This copy is very prominently and beautifully signed in metallic-silver pen-marker on the title page by William Klein. It is signed directly on the page itself, not on a tipped-in page. This title is a great film book. As far as we know, this is the only such signed copy of the First Hardcover Edition/First Printing (American) available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a pristine beauty. A rare signed copy thus. William Klein's "Life Is Good And Good For You In New York" was selected as one of the greatest photography books in "The Photobook". One of the greatest artist/photographers of our time. A fine collectible copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER WILLIAM KLEIN TITLES IN OUR CATALOG) ISBN 1576870383. Signed by Author. Seller Inventory # 13532

About this Item: Hamburg, Germany: Stern Gruner + Jahr AG, 1997. Soft cover. Condition: Fine. 1st Edition. 1st Printing. Signed. 110 pages. Published in 1997. Retrospective collection of photographs. Special Limited and Numbered Edition. Number 7 in the continuing Series by Stern. The first 50 Issues of the Stern Portfolio Library of Photography, the most avidly collected Photography Series of its kind in the world, were all published as softcover originals only. A brilliant production by William Klein and Stern: Oversize-volume format. Pictorial softcovers with titles on the cover, as issued. Photographs by William Klein. Printed on pristine-white, thick coated stock paper in Germany to the highest standards. Without DJ, as issued. Presents William Klein's contribution to the now-legendary Series whose brilliant concept is to devote each Issue to a particular photographer, either as a "Portfolio Issue" or as a "Spezial Fotografie". The creator of a style that has been extremely influential just as it has remained completely original, William Klein began his career as a graphic designer, which is why his books, including this Issue, are beautifully and meticulously produced, and more important, it provided the basis for his raw, powerful, and obtrusive photographic style. Every graphic designer wants his work not just to be noticed, but to invade your consciousness and implant itself there (this is why "art directors" of advertising agencies are graphic designers, and Klein himself worked in advertising intermittently). Klein inaugurated a revolution in photography by breaking with the medium's taboos and traditions. He developed a radically new way to take pictures, perfecting his graphic design-based style by incorporating elements of black humor, social criticism, satire, reportage, cinema, literature, and poetry, thereby creating the unique look that has since been so widely copied by other artists, graphic designers, and photographers (without credit being given to its creator) it is now part of our collective photographic vocabulary. There is no modern, "cutting-edge" magazine in the world that does not have an unmistakable trace of Klein's style. The Portfolio Magazine/Spezial Fotografie Series have become eminently collectible and now include Contributions by Peter Beard, Peter Lindbergh, James Nachtwey, Francis Giacobetti, Annie Leibovitz, Nan Goldin, Mario Testino, David LaChapelle, Herb Ritts, Ellen von Unwerth, Giorgia Fiorio, Horst, Martin Parr, and Andreas H. Bitesnich, among many others. An absolute "must-have" title for William Klein collectors. This copy is very boldly and beautifully signed in red pen in front by William Klein. It is signeddirectly on the front cover itself, not on a tipped-in page. He added a love/heart symbol to his signature. This title is now collectible. As far as we know, this is the only such signed copy available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a pristine beauty. A rare signed copy thus. One of the greatest artist/photographers of our time. A fine collectible copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER WILLIAM KLEIN, PORTFOLIO MAGAZINE, AND SPEZIAL FOTOGRAFIE TITLES IN OUR CATALOG) ISBN 3570001210.

Text is clean and free of marks, binding tight and solid, boards very lightly rubbed and worn. William Klein's Life is Good & Good for You in New York is regarded as one of the most influential and groundbreaking photo-books created in the last half-century. Published in 1956, its visual energy captured the rough-and-tumble streets of New York a city Klein once described as "the world capital of anguish" like no photo-book had done before or since. Robert Capa famously declared that if your photographs were no good it was because you were not close enough to your subject, and in Klein's New York people press themselves up against the lens, dance around it, pull faces, pretend to shoot each other a visual chaos which is rigorously organized by Klein's "one American eye and one European eye, " as he once characterized his style.

About this Item: CENTRE GEORGES POMPIDOU / MARVAL, Paris, France, 2005. Hardcover. Condition: Near Fine. Dust Jacket Condition: Very Good. 1st Edition. William KLEIN. RÉTROSPECTIVE. A large, lavishly produced, photography book, produced to coincide with the William Klein Retrospective Exhibition at the Centre Georges Pompidou, Paris, 2005. SIGNED, DATED and with a Hand Drawn HEART, by WILLIAM KLEIN, on the title page. His signature was signed twice, with two types of white paint pens, one signature overlapping the other. Clearly Klein did not like the first pen that he used. The date and hand drawn heart that he wrote and drew beneath his signature are with the same white paint pen that he used to resign over his original signature. The overlapping signatures cause his signature to be a bit blurry and a bit double-cool! (please see my photos) Published by the CENTRE POMPIDOU / MARVAL, Paris, France, 2005. First Edition. Large Format HARDCOVER Book in DUSTJACKET, 10x13.5", 380 pages. (Also published in a Softcover edition. The Hardcover first edition is very hard-to-find.) Almost every page is a PHOTOGRAPH by the Great Photographer WILLIAM KLEIN. Most are in b&w. Condition: NEAR FINE book, tight, bright, clean and unmarked; in a VERY GOOD dustjacket that has a 1/2 inch tear and associated creasing at the bottom of the rear flap fold, a 1/2 inch tear at the top of the front spine fold, and some light edgewear and rubbing. A solid, lovely copy. The SIGNATURE, DATE, and small drawing of a HEART makes this HARDCOVER FIRST EDITION WILLIAM KLEIN RETROSPECTIVE SCARCE and WONDERFUL. INTERNATIONAL BUYERS PLEASE NOTE: This book is large and heavy and will require substantial additional shipping charges. After placing your order you will be notified of the additional charges and be able to accept or reject them before your payment is processed.

About this Item: Aperture, E-110, 2009. Hardcover. Condition: Very Good. Hardcover. 4to. Apeture. 2009. 224 pgs. Two Volumes. Illustrated with photographs. Signed by William Klein in silver ink on the first volume. First, thus. Slipcased. Slipcase has some light shelfwear present to the edges of the slipcase. Issued in glossy paper covered boards. No ownership marks present. Text is clean and free of marks, binding tight and solid, boards clean with no wear present. In 1956, a 28-year old William Klein arrived in Rome, fresh from the debut of his now classic monograph Life Is Good & Good for You in New York, to assist Federico Fellini on his film Nights of Cabiria. Filming was delayed, and so Klein instead strolled about the city in the company of Fellini, Pier Paolo Pasolini, Alberto Moravia and other avant-garde Italian writers and artists who served as his guides. It was on these walks that Rome, a pioneering and brilliant visual diary of the city, was born. First published in 1959, Klein's Rome features the quirky extended captions that distinguished his New York book, interspersed with observations about the city by Stendhal, Michelet, Mark Twain, Henry James and others. Today it is one of the most celebrated photography books of the twentieth century. To celebrate the fiftieth anniversary of Rome's publication, Aperture (in close collaboration with Contrasto) has produced a revised edition, which includes previously unseen fashion pictures made in Rome and an updated text by the photographer. Redesigned to encompass two volumes in a special PVC slipcase, this new edition offers audiences another chance to celebrate one of the great photobooks. As Fellini said, "Rome is a movie, and Klein did it." E-110; 4to 11" - 13" tall; Signed by Author. Seller Inventory # 52641

About this Item: New York City, NY: Random House, 1994. Hardcover. Condition: Fine. 1st Edition. 1st Printing. Signed. 254 pages. Published in 1994. Landmark collection of fashion and lifestyle photographs. The first appearance of the title in English and in the United States. 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 rare. A brilliant production by William Klein: Oversize-volume format. The book weighs 5 pounds. Glossy pictorial hard boards with titles on the cover and spine, as issued. Photographs by William Klein. Afterword by Martin Harrison. Stunning endpapers. Printed on pristine-white, thick coated stock paper by Amilcare Pizzi in Milan, Italy to the highest standards. Without DJ, as issued. Presents William Klein's "In And Out of Fashion". The truly astonishing range of the photographer's fashion and lifestyle work. Complemented and juxtaposed with his unsurpassable street photography. The creator of a style that has been extremely influential just as it has remained completely original, William Klein's approach to fashion is more subdued, but still retains his trademark "in-your-face" aggressiveness, wit, and panache, in stark contrast to the polished, clean, and Minimalist "look" perfected and favored by the School of the great Alexey Brodovitch and his disciples, most notably Avedon. William Klein began his career as a graphic designer, which is why his books are beautifully and meticulously produced, and more important, it provided the basis for his raw, powerful, and obtrusive photographic style. Every graphic designer wants his work not just to be noticed, but to invade your consciousness and implant itself there (this is why "art directors" of advertising agencies are graphic designers, and Klein himself worked in advertising intermittently). Klein inaugurated a revolution in photography by breaking with the medium's taboos and traditions. He developed a radically new way to take pictures, perfecting his graphic design-based style by incorporating elements of black humor, social criticism, satire, reportage, cinema, literature, and poetry, thereby creating the unique look that has since been so widely copied by other artists, graphic designers, and photographers (without credit being given to its creator) it is now part of our collective photographic vocabulary. There is no modern, "cutting-edge" magazine in the world that does not have an unmistakable trace of Klein's style. The work of such photographers as Max Vadukul, Ellen von Unwerth, Peter Lindbergh, David Sims, and Mario Testino, to name just a few, owes an immense debt to William Klein's ground-breaking oeuvre. An absolute "must-have" title for William Klein collectors. This copy is very prominently and beautifully signed in white pen-marker on the black title page by William Klein. It is signed directly on the page itself, not on a tipped-in page. The signature stands out against the page's predominantly black background. This title is a great photography book. As far as we know, this is the only such signed copy of the First Hardcover Edition/First Printing (American) available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a pristine beauty. A rare signed copy thus. 91 duotone, 74 color plates. William Klein's "Life Is Good And Good For You In New York: Trance Witness Revels " was selected as one of the greatest photography books in "The Photobook". One of the greatest artist/photographers of our time. A fine collectible copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER WILLIAM KLEIN TITLES IN OUR CATALOG) ISBN 0679434240. Signed by Author. Seller Inventory # 12697

About this Item: New York: Aperture, 1981, 1981. Tall quarto. Original white boards, titles to spine and front in black and red, black endpapers. With the dust jacket. A very few extremely minor marks and scratches to covers, but an excellent copy in the jacket with very slight rubbing to some corners, a small crease to front flap top corner, and faint fading from the red titles at the spine only. Black and white full page Klein photographs throughout. First edition (simultaneous with the French edition), trade issue, inscribed on the colophon by Klein, "To Maggie, BURN THIS BOOK! Otherwise all my best, Bill Klein". Klein hated this Aperture production, thinking the printing too dark to do the images justice - still an appealing book, and an amusing inscription.

Photographs and text by William Klein. Preface by Maurice Pinguet. 184 pp., with black-and-white gravure plates throughout. 14 x 10-3/8 inches. Out of print. Scarce. [Cited in Andrew Roth, ed., The Open Book. (Göteborg, Sweden: Hasselblad Center in association with Steidl Verlag, Göttingen, Germany, 2004).]. Near Fine (moderate shelf wear to the bottoms of the boards and waviness and light toning to the extremities of the text block, else Fine), in Very Good+ dust jacket (intact, but with several 1-inch closed tears, creasing to the flaps, wear and toning to the extremities, and foxing to the jacket interior). From David Campany: "William Klein's lasting legacy to photography will be his four city books: New York (1956), Rome (1959), Tokyo and Moscow (both 1964).Tokyo is my favourite, not least because it sees Klein returning to the city whose photographic culture he helped to revolutionize. In 1964 Tokyo was the most populous city on earth and the world's media were about to descend to cover the Olympic Games. Three years later James Bond arrived in You Only Live Twice, sealing a popular iconography for Tokyo that barely seems to have changed. Klein's assessment of the city incorporates every Tokyo cliché but in pushing them to breaking point it soars above them too. .After New York and Rome Klein increased his page size so that when you open up the full-bleed double spreads of Tokyo they are more than half a metre wide. With those dense, complex compositions in your lap you feel like you're up close to a huge mural, not a page.this is where Klein is at his best, achieving the most powerful effects with the most unlikely material. I've no idea why he was in attendance at a meeting of an agricultural committee or how he got so close to the ceiling but his shot through a chandelier of bored bureaucrats in session is such a photographic joy. It is difficult to look at it and not imagine Klein muttering to himself: 'Jeeeesus this is boring! What can I do here? Ah, a chandelier!' . .Of all his books it is Tokyo I take down from the shelf most often. It's so rich, so relentlessly inventive that I can never remember it all and find myself constantly surprised. It was published in New York and Tokyo. I've no idea how Tokyo received it. No doubt it was measured against the experience of those who lived there. For the rest who saw it in 1964 I imagine it was seductive, bewildering, breathless, cacophonous, grotesque, gorgeous, informative and very intelligent. It is still." Signed by Author.
