Book 40 now 485

Back a few years ago, some Parents wanted to give me a big Thank You and it was some fine wine and a £40 Waterstones Book Voucher - as i LURVE both


Now the Book, which then was £40 is worth a staggering £485. It was an extravagent purchase, however it was also a gift so I felt that was much better than a few cheap books

The book was sponsored by Elton John, Jimmy Choo and Cartier - as well as the women who posed for free and the women photographers who captured these images for free ALL for the Aids Foundation and comprises of photographs of the worlds most beautiful women - nakie - by women photographers.

There is one caveat, each women wore just a pair of Jimmy Choo shoes and a piece from the Cartier collection ...

to me, STUNNING Nude but, discreet and beautiful portraits - great posing ideas for when I thought of togging people seriously, for money ! Until I experienced a few and their ill manners in MY HOME and changed my mind

I can highly recommend at least, viewing a copy and I am not sure about selling my pristine, in home made clear vinyl sleeve !


Has anyone else a copy ? or even viewed it ?

Sounds like it's a terrific book, but way out of my league! You obviously made a sound investment!

John, it was an Investment - but in suitably "feminine and subtle" Nudes. A friend who is an Artist had defined a number of "poses" which were discreet and yet, show off even a mature and voluptous ladies body form in art. and a Great many ladies do want a "nude" for their husband to be hung in the bedroom, usually but i have known a blue tints B&W hanging in the hall and passed off as anonymous ... with a knowing smile (except to me)

I am stunned. as said Artist friends "asked to buy it from me on Saturday" - so I said "may do, I shall think about it" and looked on AMazon for a price!

There are some cheaper - but mine is carefully stored!

Chevvy, hanging your hubby in the bedroom seems a tad excessive, even for the sake of a nude

There is a standard mass market paperback Dr Who book "Lungbarrow" from 1997 that when it comes up for sale as a secondhand item will fetch between £100 and £200 depending on condition. Original cost in the region of £3.50.
