- “Glossy spreads, stills and words straight from Del Rio’s mouth exhibit a remarkably candid, confident and exuberantly sexual woman.”
- “While this may be the best book we've ever seen about a porn star, it's also the most expensive. The bio of the world's first ethnic porn star has two editions, the art edition and the collector's edition. And, while we wish we wouldn't have to sell a kidney to buy it, it's worth every penny. The pictures alone tell the story of a woman of Amazon proportions, who actually did it for the sex. She is a rarity in her field, not only in stature and appearance, but in her ability to embrace her inner-slut.”

Vanessa del Rio1000
Fifty Years of Slightly Slutty Behavior
Limited Edition of 1,300 copies
What her fans don’t know is that her real life was, and is, as wild as anything she did on film.
In this sumptuous over-sized volume, TASCHEN celebrates a remarkably candid, confident, and exuberantly sexual woman. Presented through Vanessa’s own archive, in her own words, is a life at once shocking, titillating, amusing, and inspiring. And because paper and ink can’t do justice to a personality this big, an original 140-minute DVD documentary is included. If you aren’t already convinced, this book will end all doubt that there could ever be another woman like Vanessa del Rio.

“She is a person I dreamed about having sex with. She should go in the hall of fame for best sex scenes in the ’80s.”
“Her whole body and whole gestalt is so amazing. She was the real thing and not being seen, not being recognized. A true Amazon.”
“She is a role model for every woman who wants to express and enjoy her sexuality.”
Dian Hanson is a senior editor and writer for TASCHEN, with over 50 books to her credit. In addition to ARNOLD, her recent works include The Art of Pin-up, Masterpieces of Fantasy Art, and The Fantastic Worlds of Frank Frazetta.
