Best, Suky. PHOTO LOVE: VOLUME ONE: THE LIMITED EDITION. London, England: Suky Best Studios, 1995. Softcover. First Edition/First Printing. 30 pages. As New.

Artist Book. Collection of photographs on subject, presented as a graphic novellette. One of the most beautiful art photography books of its kind ever published. Limited Edition of 500 signed copies. The first and only edition. There is no ISBN. The book is now rare. Presents Suky Best's "Photo Love: Volume One". There is no Volume Two because it was never intended to be produced. Suky Best is simply and beautifully mimicking the comic-book romance format, manufactured endlessly in multiple volumes, so popular among young people. Her "Photo Love" is about a handsome, young married man who meets the sultry and irresistible Suky and falls in love with her to the tune of Hal David's and Burt Bacharach's "24 Hours From Tulsa". Don't laugh: Developing a storyline on the basis of a song is yet another narrative trope of pop culture. Countless Hollywood movies have been made, and continue to be made, on the premise. They decide to elope to Las Vegas, and we all know how those Vegas weddings quickly end 24 hours later, Britney Spears style. To be continued...Her little pamphlet of a book is very ingeniously and originally presented as though it were just another comic-book romance novellette, rendered in evocatively beautiful photographs (instead of cartoons). A tender, witty beauty whose graphic design values are meticulous and exemplary. An absolute "must-have" title for Suky Best, graphic design, and contemporary art photography collectors. This copy is one of the Limited Edition of 500 copies, and it is very prominently, neatly, and beautifully signed in black ink-pen by Suky Best. This title is a gem. As far as we know, this is the only copy of the Limited Edition available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a pristine beauty. A rare signed copy thus. Lavishly illustrated with color plates. One of the most brilliant living artist/photographers. A fine copy. . $30.00
