    Just out of interest, has anyone seen this book or even bought one...
    What's it actually like considering it measures 50 x 70 cm (20 x 27.5 inches) and weighs about 30 kg ?
    By the way...it costs £3500 !

    I saw a copy at the now defunct "A Photographer's Place" in New York when it came out. It's a pretty big book. As I recall it also came with a table designed by Philippe Starck

    I saw a copy of Sumo on "Nip/Tuck" in Ava Moore's house. That's the only time I've seen it other than in photos. It is huge. It must have been a good investment also because they were $1500 when it was released and now they are going for $5000 on eBay. Gotta love the Helmut.
