Publisher Comments:

As artful as it is exciting, as tasteful as it is daring, this up-market illustrated Mammoth volume offers a massive gallery of stunning images by eighty photographers who have set the trends in nude photography and made a mark with their erotica in the United States, the United Kingdom, and Europe. Among the photographers included by the editors of this piquant and varied collection stand Robert Mapplethorpe, Helmut Newton, Wolfgang Eichler, Bob Carlos Clarke, Mario Testino, Wolfgang Tilmans, Roy Stuart, Trevor Watson, Michele Serchuk, Trevor Baker, Pascal Baetens, and Eric Kroll. All the photographers in the volume are generously represented by six pages of images that showcase their particular talent to best advantage in highly nuanced, top-quality black-and-white reproductions. Accompanying the presentation of each set of images, meticulously chosen for their aesthetic as well as their erotic appeal, are brief biographical vignettes of the photographers themselves that together provide a survey of developments and experiments that have advanced the artistry of contemporary erotic photography.

Synopsis:

As artful as it is exciting, this illustrated Mammoth volume offers a massive gallery of stunning images by 80 photographers who have set the trends in nude photography and made a mark with their erotica in the United States, the United Kingdom, and Europe. 400 b&w photos.

I wish I could find Harry Wynn,He seems to be missing in action! Great book I loved doing the work and I'm glad that I was summited as two entries in the book from Harry. Finally a payoff of accomplishment!
