Not to be outdone by Visionaire’s outrageously priced collectors trunk of all its issues, French fashion magazine Purple is releasing a super limited edition portfolio of photos from Juergen Teller, Richard Kern, Jack Pierson, Terry Richardson, and Richard Prince to celebrate its 15 year anniversary. The $25,000 ‘Purple Portfolio‘ collection features five 16″x20″ photographic prints—one from each artist—is housed in a stamped cloth-covered clamshell box, and all come signed/numbered. Not so surprisingly, only ten of these are being made. After the jump, a small sampling of what to expect including a slightly NSFW Richardson’s Service Please, Prince’s Hannah C. and Pierson’s portrait of Brad Pitt (Teller’s Pasolini’s Dog pictured above).
