About the Manufacturer:
From his humble beginning selling comic books in his native Cologne to his rapidly expanding book publishing empire, Benedikt Taschen has been all about living large - literally. Sumo, a 464-page, 66-pound compendium of Helmut Newton's photography is on of the largest and heaviest books ever produced - it comes with its own display stand - and among the most expensive, too. The first copy in a limited edition was published in 1999 and signed by many of the celebrities whose images appear in its pages sold at auction for $364,000. TASCHEN's success derives from his personality: he publishes books that reflect his own diverse personal enthusiasms.
