“I don’t even look at it as a book. I look at it as an object,”- Helumut Newton, Vanity Fair

TASCHEN Books celebrates the 10th Anniversary Edition (reprint) of Helmut Newton’s book, Sumo.

Sumo, known as the “Titantic book” due to its size, weight, dimensions and resale price, is a 480-page book which displays Newton’s best work throughout his lifetime. The book established a new archetype for the art monograph genre, and secured a significant place in photo book history. Many call Newton’s work genius because he had a knack for merging fashion and erotica seamlessly.

The 10th Anniversary Edition shares the same DNA as the original record-breaking Limited Edition, which has quintupled in price since its publication in 1999.

Sumo can be purchased in-store or online.
