ARNOLD. Annie Leibovitz Art Edition15000
I’ll Be Back
It’s Arnold Schwarzenegger: bodybuilder, actor, politician, and fabulous photo subject
He’s a four-time Mr. Universe, seven-time Mr. Olympia. His films have grossed four billion dollars worldwide. He won the California governor’s race by a landslide. He has one of the most recognizable faces in the world, an oft-imitated accent, and a physique still heralded as the most perfect ever built. He’s Arnold, the one and only, with first name recognition worldwide, and now with an Art Edition equal to his impressive size and unabashed ego.
A decade of collaboration in the making, this photo tribute covers 75 years of Schwarzenegger, from the future Terminator’s impoverished childhood in Thal, Austria, to his rise as a young athlete, his journey to America to become the most celebrated bodybuilder of all time, to his career as the world’s leading action film star, then into the California governor’s mansion and beyond.
Along the journey, Arnold’s muscular body, chiseled features, and charismatic personality made him a favorite subject of photographers, including Richard Avedon, Annie Leibovitz, Robert Mapplethorpe, Herb Ritts, Francesco Scavullo, and Andy Warhol. The big book includes them all, while the smaller companion volume gives you more intimate images, and exclusive interviews with Arnold and directors Ivan Reitman and Bob Rafelson, and top bodybuilding legends.
The Art Edition comes with a nearly life-size print of Arnold on the ski slopes by Annie Leibovitz for the June 1997 cover of Vanity Fair, signed by Annie. Printed directly on aluminum, the vibrancy of this extraordinary reproduction puts the viewer right on the slopes with him.
In addition, the Art Edition includes a unique book stand – a 1:2 scale reproduction of the iconic Capitello chair, famously created by Studio65 in 1971 and produced by Gufram. Its pop subversion of the classic Greek ionic capital and column is a fitting homage to the Greek ideal embodied by Arnold’s famous physique.
Art Edition (No. 1–100), book numbered and signed by Arnold Schwarzenegger, with a framed ChromaLuxe print, numbered and signed by Annie Leibovitz, and a Capitello book stand designed by Studio65.
