Infamous publication featuring Madonna and such luminary '90s figures as Isabella Rosselini, Vanilla Ice and Naomi Campbell. Modeled on the work of Helmut Newton and takes its cues from the fashion of Jean-Paul Gaultier. Created, perhaps paradoxically, to both provoke and to make the argument that sex, demonized as it was and is, was a normal, healthy part of life. This book by Madonna holds the record as being the fastest selling coffee table book of all time and remains a sought after cult object. Upon its release the book was banned in Japan.
