Details

First edition. Inscribed by the artist at the request of Pere Portabella “A Christopher Lee, Souvenir amical [sic] de Tapies, Barcelona, Avril 1970” on the half title. With a laid-in typed letter from Portabella, dated 27 April 2015 with his signature, reading: “I, Pere Portabella, Director and Producer of Films 59 in Barcelona, Spain, certify that many years ago I purchased two art books. One by Antonie Tàpies and the other by Joan Miró. Both were signed by the artists themselves … I gave both of these books to Sir Christopher Lee after we spent time together since he appeared as the main character in two of my films shot in 1970 and 1972”. The films mentioned were Vampir-Cuadecu, an experimental film with Lee reprising his role as Dracula, and Umbracle, a companion piece. This monograph was published as part of the publisher’s Fotoscop series. The text is by Francesc Vicens and the photographs by Joaquim Gomis.
