Here you can see my 4 James Dean-books:

Book 1

An English book of Roy Schatt
Title:
James Dean, a portrait
1982
ISBN: 0-283-98877-0

Text at the back:
Exclusive: James Dean Photographer
Few people really knew James Dean, and only his close friends
knew of his desire to become a photographer.
In James Dean: A PORTRAIT,
photographer Roy Schatt tells the story
of the very special friendship between himself andDean,
who asked Schatt to teach him the art.
The remarkable photographs taken by Dean during this
extraordinary apprenticeship are published

Book 2

This is a German book of Wolfgang Fuchs
Title:
James Dean, Spuren eines giganten
1986
ISBN: 3-8228-0034-1
(with a free poster!)

 Text at the back:
There is no actor, who gave us (especially the young people), with only 3 movies,
the perfect idea of the living in the fifties!
He only had a short life, but his images are still here!
The tracks of a giant!

Book 3

A Dutch book of John Howlett (translated by Ruth Visser)
Title:
James Dean, een onsterfelijke rebel
1986
ISBN: 90-6213-862-4

Text at the back:
James Dean was only 24 years old when he had a deadly car-accident (in his silver-colored Porche) on the highway 99 .
It was happened in 1955 and at that moment he had only made three movies:
"East of Eden", "Rebel Without A Cause" and "Giant", but those movies made him allready a legend. His early dead -which a lot of people could not believe- caused an unknown hysterie.
Now, more than 30 years later, James Dean is still an idol. In James Dean -een onsterfelijke rebel- you can read his short, but movie life. James Howlett spoke with actors and directors, who worked with Dean and the people who knew him. The result is an exclusive biography, a study behind the myth which survived allready 2 centuries and did not loose his glamour and mystics. James Dean said: "If a man can survive the gap between life and death, and he still lives on after his death, he probably was a big man!"
Dean was that kind of man!
