New York: Light Gallery/Farrar, Straus & Giroux, 1975. 1st Edition. Oblong octavo, publisher's photo-illustrated stiff paper wraps.
Collection of 85 black-and-white photos of women marching in parades, skinny-dipping in ponds, reading newspapers, and just living during the 1960/70s era of second-wave feminism and the sexual revolution, by New York street photographer Winogrand. As he says in his introduction "'Women Are Beautiful' is a good title for this book because they are." Arguably a bit bursting-out-of-their-clothes creepy, but still a classic. Introductory essay by playwright Helen Gary Bishop. Published simultaneously in hard cover and paperback. Approx. 1/4" closed tear to bottom edge of upper wrap, light fingersoiling. Very good.
