Rare portfolio with 11 prints advertising Richard Avedon's 1978 retrospective exhibition at the New York Metropolitan Museum.
High quality offset lithographic duotone prints on heavyweight chamois coloured paper
Each image titled and dated bottom left
Folio size - 25cm x 20.5cm
Plate size - 25cm x 20cm

The covers have light soiling and a few light stress marks and slight edge wear. The plates are all very good with minimal edge tanning, few with slightest bumped corner.

All images themselves are in perfect condition.

Further infos: In 1978 Richard Avedon prepared the "Portfolio of Eleven from Paris" in conjunction with his retrospective exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum in New York. The images are from those taken in Paris during the late 1940's and early 1950's. To present this limited edition (75) portfolio of images, Avedon prepared an exquisite presentation portfolio of the same images specially printed by offset lithography. This presentation portfolio has now become a collector's piece. It is this presentation portfolio that is offered here together with authentic letter by Norma Stevens (Mr. Avedon's publicist).

    La obra está en perfecto estado, pero por el valor que tiene esperaba un embalaje de mayor calidad, no que llegase enrollado en un tubo. Un envío en paquete plano hubiese sido más adecuado.

    The print was rolled in a tube + enclosed in a cardboard box to prevent any damage during the shipment. And as you said your print arrived in perfect condition. Sending it in a flat parcel was taking the risk it arrived bumped in a corner.

    I'm sorry you didn't find enough details but the binding type was mentioned (softback), the size was mentioned too (31x26cm), the name of the publisher was given, the year of publishing was given, and as you said it was specified this was a booklet. I thought this was accurate enough. Besides there were 17 pictures of the book.
