Printed in letterpress with a brilliant new translation by classical scholar Scott Goins, The Odes of Pindar
is accompanied by eleven platinum prints of Greg Gorman’s classic nudes. Pindar, the greatest lyric poet of
ancient Greece, celebrated athletic prowess and male beauty within the context of the Olympic games. Gorman
is photography’s leading classicist, and the work of no other living artist could better complement Pindar’s poetry.
Gorman makes light itself sculpt muscle, tendon, and bone as a Greek sculptor would have carved marble.
Timeless beauty is both his and Pindar’s subject. The handmade papers and foils of the unique binding suggest
both the humble terra cottas and the elite shimmering golds of classic Greek aesthetics. A 21st Editions masterpiece!
