$750 Book Aims At Streisand Fanatics
NEW YORK (AP) _ How obsessive are Barbra Streisand’s fans? A coffee table book may provide an answer.
Publisher Taschen announced Wednesday that “Barbra: Streisand’s Early Years in Hollywood, 1968-1976” will be published in December. According to Taschen, the book will include more than 240 images, many of them never published before. The text will feature a conversation between photojournalists Steve Schapiro and Lawrence Schiller, both of whom were commissioned to work with Streisand after she arrived in Hollywood.
But the main Collector’s Edition is limited– 1,000 copies. And the price is worthy of seats at a Streisand concert: $750. Two “Art Editions” are even more limited, 100 copies each, and cost $1,800. One set of “Art Edition” books features a print signed by Schapiro, the other a print signed by Schiller.
