(New York: PPP Editions in association with Roth Horowitz LLC, 2001).]. Fine in Near Fine box (a few stray surface marks; closed tears at two corners of lid). From the publisher: "The acclaimed Book of 101 Books: Seminal Photographic Books of the Twentieth Century recognizes David LaChapelle's 1996 LaChapelle Land as its 101st book. And rightly so. The marriage of LaChapelle's vivid, high-octane images with graphic artist Tadanori Yokoo's supersaturated designs make for an astonishing physical object.'There's a tradition of celebrity portraiture that attempts to uncover the 'real person' behind the trappings of their celebrity. I am more interested in those trappings,' says LaChapelle. Indeed, he exaggerates the artificiality of fame and Hollywood culture in a head on collision of color, plastic, and whimsy. His photographs confront our visual taste and challenge our ideas of celebrity, all the while taking us on a roller coaster ride through his hyper-sensationalized galaxy. Lil' Kim becomes the ultimate status symbol, tattooed in the Louis Vuitton pattern. Madonna rises from pink waters as a mystical dragon princess. Pamela Anderson hatches out of an egg; and Alexander McQueen burns down the castle dressed as the Queen of Hearts.David LaChapelle's uncompromising originality is legendary in the worlds of fashion, film, and advertising. His images, both bizarre and gorgeous, have appeared on and in between the covers of Vogue, Vanity Fair, Rolling Stone, Vibe and more. LaChapelle Land is fun park America gone surrealistically wrong - but in such an attractive way. David LaChapelle's photos have appeared in Vanity Fair, Details, French Vogue, The Face, Detour, The New York Times Magazine, Arena, and on MTV. The images [LaChapelle] creates are part sex, part satire, part fantasy--in a word, outrageous. This 'mind-blowingly lavish compilation' features portraits of Drew Barrymore, Leonardo DiCaprio, Faye Dunaway, Andy Warhol, Tupac Shakur, Smashing Pumpkins, and many more. Packaged in a beautiful box designed by the legendary Japanese graphic artist Tadanori Yokoo, this book offers a truly entertaining visual experience." Signed by Author.

He found space somewhere in the book for each and every one. So, dear reader, don't skip over a single one. I have no doubt that by participating in this memorial you too will surely be able to find deliverance from your earthly suffering." [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        House on Fire

      Fiddletown, California:: Katherine Venturelli,, 1996.. Edition of 5 variants. 10.5 x 8" closed; extends to 48". Intaglio images on Rives BFK. House-shaped pages. Embossing. Graphite. Bound in red cloth over boards with embossed flame images. Housed in wood house-shaped box 12 x 10.75 x 2.5". Herb Boxhorn assisted on the box. Signed and numbered by the artist. Victoria Dalkey, "Turning the pages of life," The Sacramento Bee, 1999: "Venturelli makes most of her elegant, sumptuous books in the form of rudimentary, streamlined houses. Take off the roof of one and you find inside an accordion-folded book that opens to reveal etchings. … "Several images occur on the pages of her books - boats and ladders, cups and chalices, circles and triangles. 'They are archetypal symbols of change and transformation,' Venturelli said. "'The house is a sacred place,' she said. … 'It is a womb, a place to rejuvenate. Just as we are always working on our houses, we are changing ourselves.' "In addition to serving as a three-dimensional casing for Venturelli's books, houses also appear as images in many of her works. Often they are engulfed in flames. "'Fire, again, is a symbol of transformation,' she said. 'Fire purifies and renews life. It has power and energy, yet it destroys. Sometimes we have to destroy in order to transcend a situation. Death is a form of transformation.'

        Evidence 1944 - 1994 Gebundene Ausgabe von Mary Shanahan (Herausgeber), Richard Avedon (Autor), Jane Livingston (Mitarbeiter), Adam Gopnik (Mitarbeiter)

      Schirmer /Mosel Verlag Gm, 1996. Autorisierte deutschsprachige Ausgabe. Hardcover. 36,2 x 28,6 x 3 cm. Richard Avedon wurde am 15. Mai 1923 in New York City geboren. Sein Vater war als jüdisch-russischer Einwanderer in die USA gekommen und in einem New Yorker Waisenhaus aufgewachsen. Zu Avedons Markenzeichen gehört der weiße, leere Hintergrund, auf dem nichts vom Motiv ablenkt. Neben den Schönen und Prominenten der Welt lichtete der Künstler das Leben von Arbeitern, Demonstrationen gegen den Vietnamkrieg, Kriegsopfer und Landstreicher ab. Zum Jahreswechsel 1989/90 fotografierte er eine Reportageserie über Berliner nach dem Mauerfall. Seine Bilder gelten als schonungslos und detailgenau. 2004 starb Richard Avedon, der einer der berühmtesten Mode- und Porträtfotografen der Welt war. Richard Avedon wurde am 15.
