Metzner, Sheila. SHEILA METZNER: COLOR. Altadena, CA: Twin Palms Publishing, 1991. Hardcover. First Edition/First Printing. 172 pages. As New/As New.

Collection of the photographer's color photographs. Limited Edition of 10000 copies. A very limited number of copies were signed by the photographer under the auspices of the publisher. A lovely production by Sheila Metzner and Jack Woody: Oversize-volume format. Green silk cloth boards with black titles embossed on cover and spine, as issued. Photographs and Afterword by Sheila Metzner. Acknowledgements, List of Solo and Group Exhibitions, Permanent Public Collections, Books, and Articles appended at the end, one of the best reference-summaries to Metzner's brilliant career thus far. In matching green, mustard, and red abstract-design DJ with titles on the cover and spine, as issued. Presents the photographer's sumptuous color photography work. The photographs include both work Metzner did to explore her fascinating ideas about color - she uses it to convey and reinforce the sensuous atmosphere and texture of her subjects - as well as on commission, for celebrated advertising campaigns (such as the award-winning "Fendi Uomo" campaign). Her subjects cover a wide range: Landscape, still life, male and female portrait-studies, portraits, snapshots, and in many instances, seamlessly melded combinations of these various genres. "A retrospective look at Sheila Metzner's fifteen-year career in photography (1976-1991), from her early photographic prints of tabletop still lifes, printed and sometimes hand-painted by the artist to her masterful fashion work and southwest landscapes. The artist's original brilliantly colored Fresson prints are reproduced in this elegant volume for a definitive look at her work" (Publisher's blurb). A "must-have" title for Sheila Metzner collectors. This copy is very prominently and beautifully signed, placed, and dated in black fountain pen on the title page by the photographer: "Sheila Metzner Santa Fe 2003". This title has been out-of-print for a very long time and is now highly collectible. This is one of extremely few signed copies still available online and has no flaws, a pristine beauty. Many copies available online are in very poor shape or "hurt" condition. A rare signed copy thus. 76 color plates. One of the finest living American photographers. A flawless collectible copy.
