(GRANNIS, LEROY). Grannis, Leroy, Jim Heimann & Steve Barilotti. LEROY GRANNIS: SURF PHOTOGRAPHY OF THE 1960S AND 1970S - DELUXE SIGNED, LIMITED COLLECTOR'S EDITION. Signed and Numbered by the Photographer. Koln, GERMANY: Benedikt Taschen Verlag, 2006. First Edition 1/1000 Deluxe. Oblong Folio. Cloth in Dust Jacket, Boxed. Photography Monograph. As New/As New. 278pp, profusely illustrated in color and b&w. Text in English, German and French. Limited to one thousand copies only, this signed and numbered first edition of Taschen's amazing Leroy Grannis tome is more than likely the most lavish surf photography book produced to date. "This collection, drawn from Grannis' personal archives, showcases an impressive selection of surf photographs-from the bliss of catching the perfect wave at San Onofre to dramatic wipeouts at Oahu's famed North Shore. An innovator in the field, Grannis suction-cupped a waterproof box to his board, enabling him to change film in the water and stay closer to the action than other photographers of the time. Equally notable is his work covering an emerging surf lifestyle, from surfer stomps and hoards of fans at surf contests to board-laden woody station wagons along the Pacific Coast Highway. It is in these iconic images that a sport still in its adolescence embodied the free-spirited nature of an era-a time before shortboards and celebrity endorsements, when surfing was at its bronzed best". Sold out long before publication, it lovingly reveals the kinder and gentler California surf scene of over a quarter century ago in hundreds of vintage images taken by one of the pioneers of the field. Mickey Dora, Greg Noll, Dewey Weber - they're all here! A pristine copy NUMBERED AND SIGNED by Leroy Grannis still shrinkwrapped in the publisher's printed shipping carton, as issued.
