"...a monumental offering from TASCHEN which includes thousands of images and sells around £2,000. These will ensure his images continue to challenge and delight with an individuality and character which Charlotte Cotton ( curator of the Victoria & Albert Museum, Photograph Department).) believes,' Will not be mimicked in the 21st Century'. "

"Sadistic, beautiful, sexy, shocking, banal. Whatever, as you can see from these pages, the one thing Newton's photographs are not is boring."
GQ, London, United Kingdom

"The Godzilla of photo books and our favourite."
FHM, London, United Kingdom

This is not a review but.... having seen and heard about this book I did want to say that my desire for it has almost become its own fetish....It gives me a reason to go out and earn money... how many times in a life can you say that of a book
