Artist Book. The 47th title in the now-legendary "One Picture Book" Series by Nazraeli Press, one of the most superb ongoing projects of contemporary art photography. Limited Edition of 500 numbered and signed copies. Accompanied by one tipped-in, original print by the artist/photographer (hence the Series' name). An elegant production by Nancy Honey and Chris Pichler: Small-size volume format. Titles on the cover and spine, as issued. Photographs, design, and mise-en-scene by Nancy Honey. Printed on pristine-white, archival stock paper to the highest standards. Without DJ, as issued. Presents a charming, lighthearted, and witty sequence of a visit to the eponymous parlor. Of all pets and perhaps because of its French origin, the poodle is most closely identified with luxury, indulgence, and discriminating taste. Nancy Honey shows how a pet becomes an extension, not just a part, of the lifestyle of her mistress (every poodle "master" is a she). The care the poodle gets is always excessive, and in some cases, the mistress comes to look like her poodle, the most famous example being Elizabeth Taylor, who sports a "poodle hairdo", and is identified with her pet poodles. A "must-have" title for Nancy Honey collectors. This copy is one of the Limited Edition, and is numbered in pencil on the Back Limitation Page. It comes with an original color print, which is very prominently and beautifully signed in pencil on verso by Nancy Honey. This title is now collectible. This is one of few copies still available online and has no flaws, a pristine beauty. A scarce signed copy thus. 7 plates, 1 original print. One of the most brilliant living photographers. A flawless copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER ONE PICTURE BOOK TITLES IN OUR CATALOG). ISBN 1590052307. $50.00
