Guido Harari - Fotografie in Musica

The book came with this removable orange wraparound strip. 

Fotografie in Musica, which simply translates to ‘Photographs in Music’, is a wonderful book by photographer Guido Harari, which was released back in 1991. I’ve been aware of the book ever since it was first printed, but I was never fortunate enough to find a copy. Over the years, I was tempted to buy a second-hand copy, but I passed on this idea for two reasons: 1. People seem to want an absolute fortune for this book. 2. I find that most people’s personal grading system on second-hand books tends to be completely inaccurate.

Without the strip.

Quite recently, I was lucky enough to get a hardcover copy of the book directly through the photographer himself – he even kindly signed it for me.

Underneath the dust jacket the book has a nice hessian covering.

Apart from the written facsimile intro by Kate, the entire book is written in Italian. Even if you don’t understand or speak Italian (like me) it’s really no big deal as far as I’m concerned. The photos in the book really speak for themselves, and in my opinion that’s really all it’s about. It really is a stunning book, so if you can get your hands on it for a decent price I really recommend it.

Whether you’re a Kate Bush fan, a fan of Guido Harari’s work, love music or photography in general, there’s something for everyone in this book. It’s absolutely stuffed with both colour and black & white photos.

Apart from the dust jacket cover and the intro, Kate gets two full colour pages in the book.

Unfortunately, this is one book that I will not scan in for the simple fact that it's tightly bound and I don't want to snap the spine on it.
