In 2004, Steidl published a seven-volume facsimile edition of the complete first decade of "Interview" magazine, housed in a trolley carrying case, which quickly sold out and has since become highly collectible. This edition is no longer available, but D.A.P. now has limited stock of the seven complete facsimile books, available for only $195! If you missed the collector's edition, this is a unique opportunity to own the facsimile volumes themselves.
Founded by Andy Warhol and Gerard Malanga in 1969, and celebrating its fortieth anniversary in 2009, "Interview" magazine has developed from the newsletter of the Studio 54 set into the definitive guide to the stars of today and tomorrow. "Interview"'s brilliant conception was to invite celebrities who might be fans of one another's work to interview each other, eliciting often intimate and revelatory results. Alongside these interviews are photographs by the cream of celebrity and fashion photography--Robert Mapplethorpe, Francesco Scavullo, Herb Ritts, Ara Gallant, Peter Beard, Bruce Weber, Perry Berenson and others--who are given the opportunity to make some of their most challenging and original work. For 40 years, "Interview" has offered a fresh perspective on the sexy, fascinating and funny people who shape popular culture.show more
