New York: Ridge Press / Nelson, 1966. First UK Edition. Quarto. Like Sam Haskins, Paine's mid-sixties erotic study is as much a statement on the models as it is of the era itself. One of the highlights of the genre, presented sequentially in a cinematic style. Unlike many photobooks, Mirror of Venus was a commercial success at the time of publication and had multiple printings. With text by Françoise Sagan and Federico Fellini. Fine in a fine jacket.
