Limited edition of ''Helmut Newton'', signed by the iconic photographer. Cologne: Taschen, 1999. Volume is number 1,479 of the 10,000 limited edition, the first of Taschen's SUMO publications and unheralded for its page count, size and weight, requiring a custom-made stand by Phillipe Starck for its display, included here. Signed boldly by Newton to limitation page. One of the largest and most expensive photographic volumes ever produced, Taschen says of it: ''...the idea of a spectacular compendium of images, a book with the dimensions of a private exhibition, reproduced to exceptional page size and to state-of-the-art origination and printing standards, emerged from an open, exploratory dialogue between photographer and publisher...Newton created a landmark book that stood head and shoulders above anything previously attempted, both in terms of conceptual extravagance and technical specifications. Published in an edition of 10,000 signed and numbered copies, SUMO sold out soon after publication and quickly multiplied its value. This worldwide publishing sensation now features in numerous important collections around the world, including New York's Museum of Modern Art...'' Volume weighs approximately 56 lbs., measures 20'' x 28'' and runs 464pp. As displayed on the stand, entire presentation measures 35'' tall. In unusually well-preserved condition; very light creasing to dust jacket, otherwise entire presentation is near fine.
