Helmut Newton, SUMO
Taschen, $349

SUMO established new standards for the art monograph genre, and secured a prominent place in photo-book history. This new edition is the fulfilment of an ambition conceived some years ago by Helmut Newton. He would surely be pleased that, a decade on from its first publication, SUMO – now in a format that allows for a more democratic distribution – will reach the widest possible audience.

Proud owners of the new edition won’t wrestle with their copy of SUMO. It comes with a unique stand for displaying the book at home.
