What is Man.
[New York:] Glenn Horowitz Bookseller, 1998. Slim 4to, 12 unnumbered leaves. 7 reproductions of photographs by Fuss, of which 2 are tipped-in color, 1 is full-page b/w and 4 are half-page b/w. The three pages of text consist of title page, list of photographs, and colophon, all of which follow the photographs. On cream and gray paper, with black endpapers, in original black silk cloth binding. Fine. Edition limited to 200 copies signed and numbered by the artist. An extremely rare and seductive book by this modern master whose recent exhibition at the Boston MFA occupied several rooms and was breath-taking. Fusss images are now routinely selling in the $10,000-$30,000 range at auction, with his gallery selling out his shows within hours of opening. This is his first book and has long been unavailable.
