SUMO is back

Helmut Newton’s SUMO, the world’s largest, most expensive and most sought-after photo book is back with a re-issue by top quality publisher TASCHEN. The brand new SUMO book offers the incredible photography by Helmut Newton in a slightly smaller formatted hardcover issue and includes a beautiful Plexiglasbookstand on which you can display the book or use as a book browser in your own home or office.
So Sumo is back. Not just on the bookshelf, or on the bookstand but also back for display. The 1999 original edition of Helmut Newton's SUMO was the biggest and most expensive book production of the 20th century. SUMO was limited to 10,000 copies worldwide, each signed and numbered by Helmut Newton himself. Helmut Newton was born in Berlin (31 October 1920), he was a German-Australian fashion photographer. He was well-known for studying naked women. His work was featured in top-magazines such as French Vogue, Playboy and Harper's Bazaar, just to name a few. He became internationally renown during his work for French Vogue and since then his influence has grown with the years. Helmut was married to actress June Browne, who also started a  photography career under the name of Alice Springs. In 2007 she released a short film by HBO Documentaries named, "Helmut by June". Helmut and June were companions, they worked and lived closely together and co-insisted as a unity. Unfortunately Helmut died in a car accident at the age of 83. His images live on though, as distinctive, seductive and original as he was. This new 10th Anniversary Edition of Helmut Newton's SUMO offers many of the world famous photographs by Helmut Newton including many that had never been published prior to the original SUMO release. As you can expect from any TASCHEN release this edition of the book is of an incredible quality. Beautiful high resolution photographs, lush paper and a beautiful bookstand make this the perfect book to display and browse in your home or office. Order it here. [gallery]
