Weber, Bruce. BRANDED YOUTH AND OTHER STORIES. Boston, MA: Bulfinch Press, 1997. Hardcover. First Edition/First Printing. Unpaginated. As New.

Artist Book/Exhibition catalog. The first and only edition. Published in a small and limited print run as a hardcover original only. The book is now scarce. A brilliant production by Bulfinch: Regular-sized volume format. Pictorial hard boards with titles on cover and spine, as issued. Photographs and text by Bruce Weber. Printed on thick uncoated stock paper in the United States to the highest standards. In publisher's original shrinkwrap. Without DJ, as issued. Published on the occasion of the exhibition of the same name in London in 1997. One of the most celebrated fashion and lifestyle photographers of our time looks at the "other America", the less-than-glamorous, gritty, and ruggedly handsome men of the heartland often heartlessly referred to as "white trash". The book covers a much wider geography than Weber's little gem of a classic, "No Valet Parking", which was shot entirely in Montana, but the focus is the same: "Beehiving" groups of young men in small-town America and other parts of the Western world. Filled on virtually every page with full-page, black-and-white and color photographs that find and celebrate the beauty of the all-natural man. Deep down, Weber is a follower of Walt Whitman, who espoused that beauty could be found everywhere if only one kept an open mind. Although not as popular as the photographer's classically composed and physically perfect male nudes, this is a "must-have" title for Bruce Weber collectors. This title has been out-of-print for a very long time and is now highly collectible. This is one of few copies still available online, is still in the publisher's original shrinkwrap, and has no flaws, a pristine beauty. A very scarce copy thus. Lavishly illustrated with duotone and color plates. Bruce Weber's "O Rio de Janeiro", the sexiest photography book ever published, was selected as one of the "Seminal Photography Books of the 20th Century" in the "Book of 101 Books". One of the finest living American photographers. A flawless collectible copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER BRUCE WEBER TITLES IN OUR CATALOG). ISBN 0821225251. $150.00
