Influenced by the likes of Helmut Newton, Bruce Weber, Guy Bourdin, and Robert Mapplethorpe, Madonna called in fashion photographer Meisel, former editor of Interview magazine O'Brien, art director Fabian Baron and makeup artist Francois Nars to help bring her fetish-fantasy visions to life: "I love my pussy, it is the complete summation of my life. It's the place where all the most painful things have happened. But it has given me indescribable pleasure. My pussy is the temple of learning." Illustrated throughout with full-page color and black-and-white photos, featuring celeb cameos by Naomi Campbell, Isabella Rossellini, Big Daddy Kane, Vanilla Ice, Joey Stefano, Udo Kier, and Tatiana von Fürstenberg. Published simultaneously with the release of her fifth studio album Erotica, a CD of which was included (and is present here); with original "Dita In the Chelsea Girl" comic book insert present. Serial number 0273442 blind-stamped to lower board. Original mylar-wrapped CD and folded packing bag laid in. Upper aluminum board with some scratches to surface. Near fine. Item #222
