Paul Jasmin's work and unique artistic personality are known to and revered by friends, colleagues, and admirers who fondly call him "Jazz". "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). A "must-have" title for Paul Jasmin and erotic art photography collectors. This copy is very prominently and beautifully signed, dated (in the year of publication), and inscribed in black fountain pen on the half-title page by Paul Jasmin. This is the copy of Modern Gallery Los Angeles, and laid-in are the gallery's souvenir materials: A Souvenir Postcard of the Opening Night Reception and the actual Price List of the prints (in 2002; please note that the prices have gone up since then). This title is now highly collectible. This is the only such signed set available online and has absolutely no flaws, pristine beauties. A rare, one-of-a-kind signed set 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 collectible set.
