Françoise and Douglas Kirkland, Physical Poetry Alphabet Standard edition

Douglas Kirkland one of the doyens of portrait photography in the motion picture industry, notably in Hollywood has produced a new book. In this publication his portraits entwine themselves with the world of letters.

Françoise Kirkland stands at the helm of an ebullient team – the sky dancer Erika Lemay, costume designer Simone Guidarelli, element desinger William Thoren together created a modern-day abecedarium. The book is a celebration of design, a circus and a movie – all rolled into one and incorporating beautiful artistic expression of the alphabet, echoing similar exercises in Western culture from the Renaissance to the great works of Art Deco, notably Erté’s famous Alphabet Suite.

Besides Douglas Kirkland’s impeccable photography the reader is invited ‘backstage’ to the making of these images with essays composed by Erika Lemay, William Thoren and Françoise Kirkland. The book’s designer, Ornan Rotem, added an introductory essay on the development of the alphabet and the long-standing romance between the human body and letters.

The book is published both as a standard edition and, for collectors and 200 copies of a Collector’s edition with a unique cover inside a box with an original signed and certified print and a B1 (100cm x 70cm) poster.
