Unpaginated. Folio. Book with illustration in slipcase with photo illustration. No dustjacket as published. Texts by Matthew Barney and Lou Reed. Signed and dated (05) by Mark Seliger on the front endpaper with black marker. Includes photos of his famous subjects in the funky stairwell of his studio. It is quite remarkable what the 75 artists, actors, writers, singers, dancers and the photographer were able to create in this small space. Book has a complete number line from 1-10, is tight, bright, unmarked, and very big. Slipcase has a very small nick to an upper quadrant, but the piece of the slipcase is still attached. Fred Woodward, the prominent New York designer of Rolling Stone and such ground-breaking books as Crazy, Sexy, Cool, is the mastermind behind the book's cutting-edge design.


More Description


The stairwell of New York photographer Mark Seliger may be unadorned, decidedly offstage, and very small, but the creativity of so many talented people jammed into one space is enormous. Each artist, dancer, and writer brings a different personality to the room, and Seliger captures that spirit in each photograph. From Paul McCartney to Susan Sarandon, from Tom Wolfe to Lou Reed, all of the participants in this project demonstrate the greatest integrity and highest creativity in their crafts. Other memorable portraits include those of Tony Hawk, Richard Serra, Bill Irwin, Laurie Anderson, and Lenny Kravitz. All 75 photographs were printed with a turn-of-the-century platinum palladium photographic process, a procedure that results in a highly detailed, rich texture. The images are printed in tritone. Fred Woodward, the prominent New York designer of Rolling Stone and such ground-breaking books as Crazy, Sexy, Cool, is the mastermind behind the book's cutting-edge design.
