Amazônia, SUMO, Limited Edition Signed Book & Exclusive Renzo Piano Bookstand

About the Item

Collector’s Edition Book (No. 401–2,400), numbered and signed by Sebastião Salgado, with corresponding bookstand designed by Renzo Piano exclusively for the Amazônia project. (Hardcover volume, 70 x 50.5 cm, 24.9 kg (54.9 lb), 472 pages, and caption book, 25.5 x 35 cm, 32 pages; bookstand made from mild steel with powder coated painting and rubber adjustable feet, 90 x 38.5 x 113.5 cm, 46 kg (101.4 lb)) AVAILABLE OCT 2021 For six years Sebastião Salgado traveled the Brazilian Amazon and photographed the unparalleled beauty of this extraordinary region: the rainforest, the rivers, the mountains, the people who live there—this irreplaceable treasure of humanity in which the immense power of nature is felt like nowhere else on earth. This connection to nature is echoed in Renzo Piano's bookstand design, of which he says it “is the simplest way to have the book in levitation. You do not even see the bookstand, you just see the book held in the air firmly. The open pages look like an albatros while flying.” Made from mild steel with powder coated painting, threaded central rods and rubber adjustable feet, the lectern was designed exclusively for the Amazônia project. Sebastião Salgado has dedicated this book to the indigenous peoples of Brazil’s Amazon region.

  • Arnold Schwarzenegger, Signed Limited Edition Book with Capitello Bookstand
    By Studio 65, Gufram Furniture, TASCHEN, Dian Hanson
    Located in Los Angeles, CA
    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 a two-volume 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 bodybuilding images, behind-the-scenes film stills, dozens of photos from Arnold’s personal archive, and exclusive interviews with Arnold and those who know him best, including directors Ivan Reitman and Bob Rafelson, and bodybuilding legends Franco Columbu, Dave Draper, and Frank Zane. The Capitello edition comes with a unique book stand – a 1:2 scale reproduction of the iconic Capitello chair...
