|"The sort of objects that make a house a home for the bachelor are a television with the dimensions of a tennis court; and encyclopedia library of x-box, P53 and Nintendo Wii games; one fridge full of beer (for himself) and another full of Louis Roederer Cristal ( for the female company he encounters in the numerous lounge bars of which he is an habitué); and the Helmut Newton Sumo book, opened at a suitably erotic image and displayed with some pride in the middle of the sitting room of his blazingly new Candy & Candy apartment."— New York Magazine, New York, United States|

- My Favorite TASCHEN Book Is...
"Of all the thousands of iconic books produced by TASCHEN, their greatest accomplishment is photographer Helmut Newton's Sumo. The sheer size and scale was an achievement in itself as it is the largest and most expensive book of the 20th century. In order to produce such a book, one needs vision and courage, not to mention the technical side of manufacturing and marketing."
