FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
powerHouse Books is pleased to announce the May 2019 release of
I Only Have Eyes For You
Two eyes hold an infinite number of possibilities. A smoldering stare stops time. An arched brow cues intrigue or surprise. A flirtatious wink might just spark the love affair of a lifetime. Whether brushed in dazzling shades of shadow or peering from behind a camera lens, eyes convey moments of beauty, discovery, and adventure.
by Alice Harris
Introduction by Christian John Wikane
Best-selling author Alice Harris continues her series of uniquely themed art books with a collection of images that inspire wide-eyed wonder. I Only Have Eyes For You is packed with vivid color and black-and-white photographs that span the silver screen and the world stage, including several pieces that premiered in Vogue, LIFE, and Harper’s Bazaar. With her unerring eye for detail, Alice has curated an unforgettable experience that takes us from Ancient Egypt to Fashion Week, from under the sea to outer space, and everywhere in between. I Only Have Eyes For You features masterpieces by Picasso, da Vinci, Magritte, Man Ray, Warhol, Lichtenstein, among other visual virtuosos. Rare portraits of screen goddesses like Bette Davis, Elizabeth Taylor, Audrey Hepburn, and Faye Dunaway evoke timeless glamour and style while leading men like Clark Gable, George Clooney, Michael Douglas, and Ol’ Blue Eyes himself Frank Sinatra, bring magnetism to the page. A fascinating array of icons including Jacqueline Kennedy, Anna Wintour, Twiggy, and even the Mona Lisa offer gazes and glances that are fixed in the pop cultural firmament.
Through the work of groundbreaking visual artists and trendsetting provocateurs, I Only Have Eyes For You reveals the power of eyes to shape our world.
