    Helmut Newton. SUMO. Monte Carlo: Taschen, 1999. Edited by June Newton. Deluxe worldwide edition limited to 10,000 copies, of which this is number 07824, boldly signed by Helmut Newton on the title page in blue crayon. Elephant folio (28 x 20 inches). 464 pages. Over 400 full-page photographs. Photo pictorial boards, photo pictorial dust jacket. With the Philippe Starck-designed chrome bookstand. Minor rippling to signature page at lower gutter margin.
