David Bailey's Box of Pin-Ups
An iconic work that propelled David Bailey's career and stands as the greatest photographic representation of the Swinging Sixties.
Featuring 36 loose photographic portraits, the sitters included Mick Jagger, Terence Stamp, Brian Jones, Kasmin, Jean Shrimpton, John Lennon & Paul McCartney, Cecil Beaton, Rudolf Nureyev, Michael Caine, David Hockney, Lord Snowdon, the Krays and others.
This remains the sole printing; Lord Snowdon's objection to the inclusion of the notorious Kray twins portrait has been cited as the reason that no second or American edition was produced making it an incredibly rare set.
Exceptionally well preserved and in entirely original condition, this always causes quite the stir when it comes onto the market.
Complete with the often discarded original piece of corrugated cardboard, inserted on issue as packaging. Housed in a bespoke black case with titles in gilt to the spine.
First edition, sole impression. All 36 prints are in fine condition. The original packing box has a few scuff marks but overall near-fine.
Published by Weidenfeld and Nicolson, London, 1965.
*Note: the framed set in the photos is just for illustrative purpsoses as many who own an example, choose to frame the whole set of 36. Having seen such a set in a client's home, it looks amazing. Also by choosing museums grade glass, you protect the prints and ensure the investment.*
