50% The Visible Woman

BLACK BOX BOOKS FOR A LONG DARK SUMMER.
PENNY SLINGER'S 50% THE VISIBLE WOMAN IS THE
PROTO-FEMINIST-PHOTO-FANTASY OF THE SEVENTIES. SIGNED AND NUMBERED
FROM AN EDITION OF JUST
50 IN 1971. IT IS THE
SURREAL DEAL. 


You can feel it. It doesn't just sit around this book. So many ideas. So much urgency. So much energy. It needs its black slipcase box to hold it in check. Alive: is the one word review. 
 

And weird. That's a two word review and also the end of this potentially inexhaustible new format! It is Penny herself on the circular plinth. And her poetry is printed on the semi-opaque flysheet. Laid and over laid.

Monument to everlasting

(The rape of the adultress).
 

HTRIB YSSEM A. Whichever way you look at it - inside outwards forwards backwards - pure visual talent. 
 

Best page. Not least because it is gloriously Instasafe! It is elegant and fashion and feminist and sexy. A full score on the IDEA great photo checklist. See more of the book here. Amazing it is. 
 

Wanted indeed. This copy is signed and numbered no.45 of 50. That's not enough copies. Not nearly enough. But that's it. One copy now. To be bought on the button below. 
 

THE RAREST OF GUY BOURDIN BOOKS IS NOT A BOOK IT IS A BOX. A BOX OF PRINTS PUBLISHED IN 2006 IN JAPAN AND GONE. DISAPPEARED. A MAGIC TRICK THAT WORKED TOO WELL.  


Try finding this. Not this actual one. We found this one. Just any other copy. Impossible! This black lacquered box of twenty high gloss Bourdin prints published in 2006 by the Daimaru Museum, Umeda Osaka is so rare.
 

A return to form - the naked form - for these weekly IDEA mails. They used to be the nudest part of the week. Need to do more. 
 

The twenty high quality high gloss prints are printed on 12 x 8 inch card. A Guy Bourdin exhibition  anytime anywhere. A bedroom show. A private view. Your own black magic box. See a few more prints on this link. Try to buy on the button below.
