Author's proof, signed by Sam Haskins
This unique copy of Cowboy Kate & Other Stories is a 1975 Limited Edition Haskins Press author’s proof, signed by Sam Haskins.
Cowboy Kate & Other Stories is an iconic sixties book which played a key role in defining the style of that decade and creative black and white photography in particular. It continues to exert a strong influence today on a wide range of visual professionals and designers. The cover is one of the most referenced images in post war fashion history.
There is a classic quality about the way in which Sam Haskins exploits every subtle gradation of the gray scale with a mastery few can equal. This capacity of extracting just what he requires from the complete range of tone, this gift of selection, of emphasis or suppression, which comes from absolute control and above all his unerring sense of design, make Cowboy Kate one of the few great photographic books of all time.
A book that is both a fabulous treat and also a truly great investment.
