David Bailey Art Edition No. 151–225 Mick Jagger 1964/SOLD OUT
In 1965, portrait and fashion photographer David Bailey released his groundbreaking book Box Of Pin-Ups, securing him as the hip tastemaker for 1960s London cool—with Mick Jagger his best man at his wedding to Catherine Deneuve and also being the inspiration for the classic movie Blow-Up. From the Swinging ’60s to the present day, Bailey has never stopped working and pushing the boundaries of his signature in-your-face portraiture and is widely regarded as one of the great postwar photographers.
This big book of Bailey is the culmination of an incredible career, the result of two years’ worth of research into his personal archives. Through penetrating pictures of the beautiful and the notorious, the idolized and the powerful, friends and family, writers, artists, and fellow photographers, Bailey presents a sweeping cultural history of the last 60 years. Featured subjects include Andy Warhol, Salvador Dalí, Kate Moss, Nelson Mandela, Francis Bacon, Zaha Hadid, the Rolling Stones, Jack Nicholson, Brigitte Bardot, Margaret Thatcher,and hundreds more.
As his friend Damien Hirst writes in the foreword: “He’s the master of his art and he’s created a mind-blowing visual language.” Additional text includes a three-part essay on Bailey’s portraiture by noted photography critic Francis Hodgson.
This Art Edition comes with a signed print of Mick Jagger, one of Bailey’s closest friends. It’s no exaggeration to say that the pair were among the coolest people in 1960s London. Their personal bond helped create one of the most famous portraits of the postwar period, also featured in Bailey’s Box Of Pin-Ups, with Jagger’s celebrated mouth and unconventional sexual magnetism emphasized by the fur hood.
Limited to a total of 3,000 numbered and signed copies, each edition comes with a bookstand designed by Marc Newson and a set of four book jackets featuring John Lennon and Paul McCartney, Jean Shrimpton, Mick Jagger, and Andy Warhol.
