Life is Good and Good For You In New York: Trance Witness Revels
Milano: Feltrinelli Editore, (1956). Milano: Feltrinelli Editore, (1956). Near fine in a close to near fine jacket with a few small edge tears, creases, and tiny chips, most prevalent at the spine ends. Two small tears at the top of the rear panel have been unobtrusively repaired by tape at the verso. This copy lacks the original booklet.. First Italian Edition. Quarto. A wild pastiche of images arranged in an ebullient anti sequence, reflecting not only the artist's pre pop predilections, but also his use of the Photostat machine at Vogue's New York office. The freedom this new technology afforded was central to Klein's innate desire to deconstruct documentary. New York, the first of four city books that Klein produced, remains one of the most sought after photography books of the mid-20th century, and a precursor to Warhol, Lorinczy, van der Keuken, van der Elsken and Moriyama. No text accompanies the images. (Parr / Badger, v1, 243; Roth 140-141; Open Book 164-165; Auer 365).
