A brilliant production by Ken Sansone: Oversize-volume format. Pictorial hard boards with titles printed on spine, as issued. Photographs by George Machado. Introductory Essay, one of the best pieces on male nude photography, by Frank Browning. Printed on thick coated stock paper in the United States to the very highest standards. In pictorial DJ with titles on the cover and spine, as issued. Presents the photographer's breakthrough debut collection. Rightly heralded for "Machado's use of light and shadow, his ability to match the pose, the subject, and the background, and most of all, his eye for the emotionally expressive and arresting qualities of the male form and face" (Frank Browning). A "must-have" title for George Machado collectors. This title is now collectible. This is one of few copies still available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a pristine beauty. Almost all other copies available online have major flaws: Worn, soiled, torn, and very heavily used. A scarce copy thus. 100 toned plates. One of the most accomplished photographers of the male nude. A fine copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER GEORGE MACHADO TITLE IN OUR CATALOG). ISBN 0517701995. $40.00
