From the publisher (in German):

Für den Reprint dieses nicht nur bei Sammlern weltweit gesuchten Buchs wurden weder Kosten noch Mühen gescheut. Das Grafische Centrum Cuno in Calbe (GCC) hat als technischer Partner nicht nur die digitalen Vorlagen aus den 1960er Jahren professionell und mit Liebe zum Detail bearbeitet, sondern das Buch auch gleich im Ultra-HD-Verfahren gedruckt. Diese neuartige, digital modulierte Abbildungstechnologie ermöglicht durch intelligente Pixelpositionierung und Pixelgrößenvariabilität eine überragende Farbwertstabilität in Licht, Mittelton und Tiefe. Dies bedeutet eine sichtbar höhere Qualität. Der Reprint des Ausgangsmaterials ist qualitativ brillanter und wertiger als das Original von 1972. Die Auflage bleibt wie bereits 1972 klein, beträgt aber nun immerhin 500 Exemplare.

Der englische Text blieb bis auf die Korrektur einiger kleiner Rechtschreibfehler unangetastet. Das hochwertige glänzende Druckpapier (Profisilk mit Dispersionsschutzlack) wurde in der Gradation etwas stärker gewählt (170 g/qm), um ein Durchscheinen der ganzseitigen s/w-Fotografien zu verhindern.

Das Original von 1972 verfügte noch nicht über eine ISBN-Nummer. Der Reprint erhält nun einen zusätzlichen Schutzumschlag mit rückseitigem Barcode. Im Inneren des Schutzumschlags befindet sich ein Poster.
Das Buch ist ab sofort bestellbar und ab Ende Oktober 2020 lieferbar. Der VK-Preis beträgt 100 EUR.

 

Burton Y. Berry was an American diplomat and senior member of the American Numismatic Society, he was also an important textile collector and served as consul to Istanbul, Bucharest, Cairo and Beirut before becoming Ambassador to Iraq and then retiring to Zurich. It is in Zurich in the late 60's, and when he was in his early sixties, that he shot this book. Presented as a guide to youth fashions (which it is), the book is more a vehicle for Berry's lust, admiration and fascination for the young men he documents. He is partiularly interested in long hair, the feminisation of youth and the flambouyancy of dress at the time. The images are really what would be later called streetstyle shots, and Berry does an excellent job categorising and presenting them, and seems to have struck up a dialogue with his subjects to really get an understanding of what was going on at the time. The overall feeling though, is that of a tender love affair with youth itself, in a way only a man in his sixties could produce. (Kunstkiosk im Helmhaus)
