Annie Leibovitz publishes Her Life’s Work in a Limited Edition Book for only $2,500

Following Helmut Newtons lead and using the same publisher: TASCHEN, Annie Leibovitz publishes Her Life’s Work in a Limited Edition Book that looks strangely like the Helmut Newton book SUMO that was published nearly 15 years ago. Were the Helmut Newton presentation included it's own fold out chromed metal table; Annie's book gets a Tripod on clear plexi treatment. I gotta say that for $2500 it should really be a Gitzo Carbon Fiber Tripod.

When you’ve captured as many photographs as renowned photographer Annie Leibovitz long and storied career surly made it a difficult task to choose the best works for this publication; consider that fact that she has been Shooting for over 40 years for clients such as: Rolling Stone and Vanity Fair.

Her latest book is a $2,500, 476-page visual retrospective of her career.

Annie Leibovitz has photographed everything from politics to fashion, and Rockstars. This massive book will features her most iconic images, as well as some rare photographs. It is scheduled to be offered in two variations: a $2,500 Collector’s Edition and the $5,000 Art Edition.

Collector’s Edition is limited to 10,000 signed and numbered copies. And the Collector’s Edition willalso  allow you to choose a dust-jacket for your new coffee table book, with 1 of the following images — Whoopi Goldberg (Berkeley, California, 1984), Keith Haring (New York City, 1986), David Byrne (Los Angeles, 1986), and Patti Smith (New Orleans, 1978).

If the Art Edition (which is yet to be released) is more to your liking you will receive the entire collection of dust-jackets, as well as a signed archival print of Leibovitz’s photograph of Keith Haring. This one is limited to 1,000 copies.

Regardless of what edition you choose, you’ll receive a handy little tripod, designed by Marc Newson, that will cleverly hold your book. Rather appropriate considering this baby costs as much as a pro-level DSLR.

If you have a spare $5000 and just need to have one of these books before they appear on eBay or East Village books, you can head on over to the Taschen site and your very own edition. The Art Edition is not yet released, you can still pre-order it to ensure you aren’t left out of the 1,000-copy run.
