Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Photographer, collector, diarist, and writer of books Peter Beard has fashioned his life into a work of art; the illustrated diaries he kept from a young age evolved into a serious career as an artist and earned him a central position in the international art world. He was painted by Francis Bacon, painted on by Salvador Dali, and made diaries with Andy Warhol; he toured with Truman Capot e and the Rolling Stones, created books with Jacqueline Onassis and Mick Jagger, all of whom are brought to life, literally and figuratively, in his work. Two volumes in a cloth slipcase: Volume 1 (PB1): 200 pages of diaries and 294 pages of collages + 5 fold-out; original essay by photo critic Owen Edwards. Nearly all the diaries and collages from the original book are included, plus two new collages finished in 2007. Volume 2 (PB2): personal photos and early work of the artist, interview with the artist by Steven M. L. Aronson, a facsimile reprint of Beard's 1993 handwritten essay.

The text is in Spanish and is accompanied by an English booklet.

Synopsis:

Photographer, collector, diarist, and author Peter Beard has fashioned his life into a work of art. A two-volume slipcased compilation highlights his most important collages and hundreds of smaller-scale works and diaries magnified to show every detail from his meticulous handwriting to stones, bones and bits of animals pasted to the page.

The text is in Spanish and is accompanied by an English booklet.
