Acerca de


Fine copy in the original pictorial boards. Particularly and surprisingly well-preserved; tight, bright, clean and especially sharp-cornered. Literally as new.; 191 pages; Physical desc.: 191 p. : col. ill. ; 29 x 38 cm. Subject: Sanchez, Ricardo B. --Photographers. Summary: In passes : The art of bullfight, art photographer Ricardo Sanchez generously pays homage to Spain's best bullfighters. In page after page of spectacularly colorful and original photography he vividly captures the ballet of the pass. The bullfighter's subtle and precarious dance is revealed in the photographic blur of a speeding half-ton bull, dared and challenged by swirling and swooping capes, just at the critical moment that it passes mere inches from the matador. With an essay from Spain's leading authority and most respected bullfighting critic and an excerpt from Hemmingway's Death in the Afternoon, the work in Passes is poised to join that of legendary artists such as Francisco de Goya and painters Edouard Manet and Pablo Picasso in tribute to bullfighting and the ancient Spanish ritual of the corrida.

Descripción de la librería

We stock books about art, design, fashion, heritage/history and gender/sexuality, specialising in books about Australian, Asian & Pacific arts, crafts design and cultural history. Since we are committed to marginalised and innovative social and cultural practices, we are more likely to have books on women artists or dissident life than coffee-table books on iconic figures. This shop is in Sydney's legendary Kings Cross area, which has provided alternatives to this country's normalcy and suburbia for the last 80 years. Colloquially known as 'The Cross', this name signifies Antipodean bohemia, streetgangs and a world-famous red light district etc. THE CROSS Art + Books is a foundation member of The Bookdealers Guild (NSW).
