Rizzoli is proud to announce the Fall 2008 publication of HORSE, by Kelly Klein. In addition to being a highly-regarded photographer, author Kelly Klein has been an accomplished competitive equestrienne since childhood, and this evocative celebration of the horse, is a project very close to her heart. Designed by Sam Shahid, this luxuriously scaled book is Klein’s tribute to the physical beauty, power, and elegance of the horse, and the sense of wonder and awe that the animal evokes in us. In more than 250 photographs, including many previously unpublished, Klein conveys her intimate and personal fascination with horses, and the intense vulnerability that counters their natural power and majesty. Klein has selected fine art and amateur photography from 1920 to the present, including images of the horse in fashion photographs, in races, in jumping and cross country competitions, and in rodeos and the circus, resulting in an anthology as provocative as it is striking. With photographs by Helmut Newton, Annie Leibovitz, Bruce Weber, Robert Mapplethorpe, Steven Klein, Dominique Issermann, Richard Prince, and Keith Carter among many others, HORSE is a passionate tribute to a magnificent animal.

All of Ms. Klein’s profits from HORSE will go to the Equestrian Aid Foundation, whose mission is to assist anyone in the equestrian world suffering from life threatening illness, catastrophic accidents or injuries by providing direct financial support for their medical or other basic needs.
