The biggest and most expensive book production in the 20th century

Helmut Newton's SUMO

$ 18,000
Sold out
Limited edition of 10,000 copies worldwide, each signed and numbered by Helmut Newton. Includes a bookholder designed by Philippe Starck.

SUMO is a titanic book in every respect: it is a tribute to the twentieth century’s most influential, intriguing and controversial photographer. Measuring 50 x 70 cm (20 x 27.5 inches) and weighing approx. 30 kg (66 lb.), the book contains 464 pages, breaking any previous record. SUMO is a truly unique publication.

SUMO, edited by June Newton, features a wide selection of over 400 pictures, most of which are published for the first time, covering every aspect of Newton’s outstanding career in photography: from his stunning fashion photographs, which pointed the way for generations of photographers, to his nudes and celebrity portaits.

In defiance of the much-loved Japanese discipline that inspired the title of this colossal work, there is no need for it’s proud owner to wrestle with SUMO. Philippe Starck has designed a unique device for displaying the book at home.

SUMO is available to all Newton fans and photo devotees in a limited edition of 10,000 copies, all numbered and signed by the artist.

"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."
