Some call it the American obsession, but men everywhere recognize the hypnotic allure of a large and shapely breast. In The Little Big Book of Breasts, Dian Hanson explores the origins of mammary madness through three decades of natural big-breasted nudes. Starting with the World War II Bosom-Mania that spawned Russ Meyer, Howard Hughes’s The Outlaw and Frederick’s of Hollywood, Dian guides you over, around, and in between the dangerous curves of infamous models including Michelle Angelo, Candy Barr, Virginia Bell, Joan Brinkman, Lorraine Burnett, Lisa De Leeuw, Uschi Digard, Candye Kane, Jennie Lee, Sylvia McFarland, Margaret Middleton, Paula Page, June Palmer, Roberta Pedon, Rosina Revelle, Candy Samples, Tempest Storm, Linda West, June Wilkinson, Julie Wills, and dozens more, including Guinness World Record holder Norma Stitz, possessor of the World`s Largest Natural Breasts.
This new downsized edition contains all the same beautiful and provocative photos of these iconic women, plus the nine original interviews, including rare conversations with Tempest Storm and Uschi Digard, and the last with Candy Barr before her untimely death in 2005. In a world where silicone is now the norm, these spectacular real women stand as testament that nature knows best, and this new affordable edition shows TASCHEN knows what you want.
I wish to thank you most warmly for the Big Book of Breasts which will find in my pantheon of books the place it deserves like many of the books published by Taschen.
This one, however, before I yet open it, is close to my heart and I am most touched that Benedikt sensitively remembered the everlasting object of my geographic passions, past, present and future.for foothills and hills, mounts, valleys, peaks, ridges, dunes and Highlands.
