I am in New York. I'll go to the gallery, most likely will not buy the book. We just got two great Prince photo books for a fraction of what they're asking for this one. It's the holidays after all.

Exactly and there were so many gorgeous pictures in each of them. I'm hoping we see more like what Steve Parke and Afshin Shahidi put out there.

This kind of thing, along with the Blule offering, makes me wonder who else is gonna come along with outrageous pricing for whatever they are offering. I am looking for things that I will pick up and enjoy looking at and won't mind company doing the same, not items that have to be kept under glass or tucked away due to the cost to purchase them.

Check out the article published by BEAT.

"The book compiles pretty much all of Whitman’s archives from that particular photography session – it’s 200 pages deep, features 71 works (4 in colour), 18 contact sheets, a whopping total of 648 images, the original 1977 press brochure and diary entries from Prince’s then business manager Gary Levinson. Plus there’s a tribute essay from Spike Lee."

Here is the full article:

Looks beautiful. No way I can afford it but it does occur to me that the price of this is only going to rise over time.

That Vero site just isn't friendly. Plus, by the time you add in postage and customs, you're up to $200 for the cheaper edition.
I'm waiting for my Omakase on Blule's book and that has gone silent.

Most of the pictures are in the Classic Pop presents 'Prince A Celebration' magazine. Which I might add, is the best retrospective of any Prince tributes. Well worth buying a copy if you live in UK or are able to buy online.
