Weighing in at a hefty 30kg and requiring a stand to prop it up, ‘Helmut Newton. Sumo‘ was the most expensive book of the 20th century. Revised by the late artist’s wife, June Newton, and scaled down to more practical proportions, this version is a welcome way to get a slice of the action. Crammed with beguiling images from the genre-busting photographer – who infamously captured Charlotte Rampling naked at the Hotel Nord Pinus II – this marvellous tome is an essential addition to a discerning coffee table.
