Jasmin, Paul (Artist/Photographer); Coppola, Sofia; D'Annunzio, Grazia & Ouroussoff, Nicolai. PAUL JASMIN: HOLLYWOOD COWBOY. Santa Fe, NM: Arena Editions, 2002. Hardcover. First Edition/First Printing. 144 pages. As New/As New.

The artist/photographer's breakthrough debut collection. Now considered a contemporary erotic photography classic. The first and only edition. Published in a relatively small and limited print run as a hardcover original only. A handsome production by Paul Jasmin and Dimitri Levas: Oversize-volume format. Cloth boards with titles embossed on spine, as issued. Photographs by Paul Jasmin. Essays by Sofia Coppola, Grazia D'Annunzio, and Nicolai Ouroussoff. Printed on thick uncoated stock paper by EBS in Verona, Italy to the highest standards. In pictorial DJ with black titles on the cover and spine, as issued. Presents the artist/photographer's finest images, black-and-white and full-color photographs, many of them sexually explicit, all of them tenderly recalling a bygone era, namely the last two decades of the 20th century. Paul Jasmin's work and unique artistic personality are known to and revered by friends, colleagues, and admirers who fondly call him "Jazz". This collection has been championed by Bruce Weber and is dedicated to him. One of its superb portraits is of Weber in a reflective pose. "Paul Jasmin's photographs are dreamy tableaux that underscore a fascination with youthful play and innocence. Included in this long-awaited collection are playful nudes, portraits of friends and colleagues from the entertainment and art worlds, fashion shoots, and restful travel images that recall 19th-century Romanticism. An influence on numerous artists, Jasmin's photographs are both rarefied and accessible. Surveys the full depth of this truly remarkable artist" (Publisher's blurb). "You can look at his photographs again and again and wish you had the life that's in them" (Bruce Weber). A "must-have" title for Paul Jasmin and erotic art photography collectors. This title has been out-of-print for a long time and is now collectible. This is one of very few copies still available online and has absolutely no flaws, a pristine beauty. Most copies available online are used or are remainder-marked. A very scarce copy thus. Lavishly illustrated with duotone and color plates presented "free-form", as an extended, jazzy riff. One of the finest living American artist/photographers. A flawless copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER PAUL JASMIN TITLE IN OUR CATALOG). ISBN 1892041553. $90.00
