A Fine unmarked copy in blue cloth boards with near Fine dustjacket. The Second Edition LIMITED to 5,000 copies. Introduction by Susan Sontag. 112 pages (unpaginated). 93 plates are sheet-fed gravures. Mapplethorpe's portraits taken over the past ten years are exquisitely presented in gravure. His undeniable strength of vision is apparent in all styles of portraiture shown, ranging from stark studio shots of celebrities to environmental portraits of children. Here are many of his well-known images, including the self-portraits, as well as lesser-known work. Sontag's short essay on portraiture adds insight to the 'Mapplethorpe mystique'. PLEASE NOTE: A LARGE HEAVY VOLUME OF 1.49 KILO UNPACKED WEIGHT WHICH WILL REQUIRE ADDITIONAL SHIPPING COST
