Originally privately printed in Switzerland a limited edition of three hundred copies in Switzerland, the photo book “Teenage Styles and Trends 1967–71: A Retrospect” by American diplomat and art collector Burton Yost Berry (1901-1985) drew little attention back in 1972. Close to fifty years later, though, it is a sought-after icon of early street photography, rare and expensive, not at last due to its being featured in Martin Parr’s & Gerry Badger’s “The Photobook: A History, Volume III.” A new reprint makes this gem of a photobook available again. Grafisches Centrum Cuno in Calbe / Germany digitized the original book, retouched it with an eye for detail, and printed it using latest Ultra HD technology – achieving brilliant images thanks to intelligent dot positioning and modulation. In terms of printing quality, the reprint may easily surpass the original of 1972. The English text remains untouched except for corrections of some smaller typos. The reprint’s dust jacket has a poster printed on the inside and the book has been printed in a limited edition of five hundred copies. A brand new, most handsome example of the now-unavailable 2020 re-publication (whose first edition is cited on page 80 of Martin Parr and Gerry Badger's "The Photobook: A History Volume III") of this quirky, highly sought-after rarity. 978-3935971980 Inventory Number: I00201221
