Folio. Red cloth bound in an illustrated jacket. Originally published in Italian, this is the first English translation. 240pp. Richly illustrated with 107 photographic plates, many of which are double page. The book’s condition is near-fine; some mild tanning to the peripheries of the jacket is its only fault. This book takes Igor Mitoraj, famed for his monumental marble sculptures, as its subject. Photographer Liberto Peruji was granted exclusive access to both Mitoraj’s studio and a number of public and private collections in order to document the extent of his oeuvre. The resulting photographs are sublime. Their production is of an extremely high quality and on a scale that fully befits the monumental nature of Mitoraj’s work. Essays are provided by Paolo Vagheggi and Julian Zugazagoitia. A wonderful and seldom seen book in excellent condition. A large book – 35cm by 30cm by 3cm/Approx.3kg – postage may have to be adjusted accordingly.
