Near fine with a publisher stamp on the blank endpaper "PHAIDON Non-mint copy" I can't find any flaws for it to deserve this stamp. The book looks near fine and the jacket is very good plus or better - perhaps it just was a little used looking rather than mint when they stamped it? At any rate a near fine or bettter copy except for the publishers stamp and light wear to jacket.

More Description

This book documents the making of the legendary film The Misfits (1961). Directed by the Hollywood auteur John Huston, it starred three of the most charismatic actors of all time -- Marilyn Monroe, Clark Gable and Montgomery Clift -- and had a script by Arthur Miller, one of America's greatest playwrights and Monroe's husband.

As part of the promotional strategy for the film, the Magnum photographic agency was given exclusive access to the shoot. Nine of its most famous photographers -- including Henri Cartier-Bresson, Eve Arnold and Elliott Erwitt -- covered the production, both on and off the set. Two hundred of their pictures are reproduced in The Misfits: Story of a Shoot in rich duotone, providing both a fascinating documentary of the making of a film and an intimate portrait of its stars.
