Love him or hate him, you can’t deny that Ross Halfin captures the absolute best Metallica moments on film.  The man has an unbelievable eye and manages to catch the band at their absolute best.  This is his first book of Metallica photos and came out, if my memory serves me correctly, just prior to the release of Load.  Tons of iconic, amazing photos from the early days with Cliff throughout the mammoth Black Album tour.

I’d have to do a bit of digging, but I know the print run on the hardcover was very limited.  I am not sure the exact number.  I actually have a softcover copy of this as well, but the cover is absolutely lame… plain silver with black type.  This one, man… the graffiti style logo… the Ride the Lightning-era band scowling… it’s killer.

I bought this through the Met Club back in the day, so it arrived to be signed by James, Lars, Kirk, & Jason.  The signatures do not look their best, but coming from the Club, you can count on its authenticity.

I love Halfin and just picked up his latest book, The Ultimate Metallica, this past week.  These two books share many of the same photos, but he included quite a bit more alongside anecdotes, forwards, afterwords, and interviews.  I highly, highly recommend it.
