Irving Penn, MOMENTS PRESERVED, 1960 & 1967

All published editions

 

Irving Penn’s Moments Preserved – Eight Essays in Photographs and Words, was one of the first photography books that I desired and hunted down for years. We are talking pre-internet, obviously. I managed to get the italian edition from a friend in Milan who parted with his copy when he saw my eyes light up as I spotted the book on his shelf.

This is Irving Penn’s first book, printed in Switzerland by C. J. Bucher AG Luzern; Camera Verlag (who produced and published Richard Avedon’s book Observations the year before) and simultaneously published in four languages. The American edition by Simon & Schuster New York,  the French edition by Les Editions de Temps, the Italian edition by Editoriale Domus, Milano, the german editions by Swiss publisher C. J. Bucher AG Luzern; Camera Verlag and the Danish edition by Lademann Forlagsaktieselskab, København. A variation of the German edition dust jacket exists, presumably produced in the later 1960s.
This volume brings together Irving Penn’s best works in fashion, portraiture, travel and still life photography.
