Polaroids (Second Edition)
By Carlo Mollino

"Sometime around 1960, Carlo Mollino began to seek out women-mostly dancers-in his native Turin, inviting them to his villa for late-night modeling sessions. The models would pose against extraordinary backdrops, designed by Mollino, in clothing, wigs and accessories that he had carefully selected. Finally, having printed the Polaroids, Mollino would painstakingly amend them with an extremely fine brush, to attain his idealized vision of the female form. The pictures, which totaled around 1,200, remained a secret until after his death, in 1973. Only a few were ever publically shown, until the acclaimed first edition of this volume was published by James Crump in 2002."

Sitting (Second Edition) 
Photographs by John K.

"Sitting features a selection of vintage photographs by a previously unknown photographer named John K., who had a passion for photographing nude women sitting on all manner of unlikely things: pies, cakes, bread, fish bowls, cats and vegetables, both indoors and out. This select edit comes from a much larger archive of hundreds of John K. photographs owned by Eric Kroll, himself a well-known fetish photographer, collector and editor of several books on the subject of erotic art and photography."

The More I Learn About Women
By Lisa Kereszi

"While photographer Lisa Kereszi (born 1973) was researching for her previous book, Joe's Junk Yard, her father, Joe Jr., gave her a worn and tattered old photo album that he had compiled in the 1970s and 80s. Inside were 4 x 6-inch color photographs taken by Joe Jr. of biker babes in bars, at bike rallies and drag races, in various states of undress. As Kereszi says, 'It's really a very odd group of images for a daughter to find-pics of biker babes showing off their tattoos, their boyfriends' bikes and hot rods, and, well, breasts.' Kereszi appropriated the photographs, and re-cropped them for this volume."
