Peter Beard

"Peter Beard, Art Edition" from Taschen

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 Dalí, and made diaries with Andy Warhol; he toured with Truman Capote 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. As a fashion photographer, he took Vogue stars like Veruschka to Africa and brought new ones—most notably Iman—back to the U.S. with him.

Can be yours, if you've got €2000 to spare (wooden stand included!)

if you have 5.000 EUR (on ebay just 2.400) left, you should have a look on the 30 kg book of helmut newton's "sumo" from taschen.
