Lisa Lyon was not the perfect, airbrushed fashion model in this book (Helmut Newton obviously used more glamorous production with her face) but that was Mapplethorpe's manner of breaking down stereotypes. Against the believed conception Lisa Lyon appears from fully clothed to flexing her muscles on the beach either in a bikini or as naked as Arnold Schwarzenegger. She is sensual on one side of the two page spread and masculinely muscular on the other page. Apparently the hardcover version has reached collector or cult status and the price has skyrocketed.

This is a seminal photography book but make sure you are not getting the miniature 1996 edition. You will have to look to find the original which includes Bruce Chatwin's introduction "An Eye and Some Body" (gratuitously over praising the collaborators but points out the nihilism and pornographic element, and that is meant in a good manner) and Sam Wagstaff's foreword is where the excellent critique really comes. Of course with the miniature edition you need a magnifying glass to read it.

The images are excellent at any size but were meant to be seen at the original size, the photographer's original desire. Lisa Lyon was not the perfect, airbrushed fashion model in this book (Helmut Newton obviously used more glamorous production with her face) but that was Mapplethorpe's manner of breaking down stereotypes. Against the believed conception Lisa Lyon appears from fully clothed to flexing her muscles on the beach either in a bikini or as naked as Arnold Schwarzenegger. She is sensual on one side of the two page spread and masculinely muscular on the other page. Both of the collaborators wanted to push the envelope of what Lady Lisa Lyon is. It illustrates both the curves (feminine)and the muscles (masculine) dressing the sensual up in different costumes or not. This book is the art of size that matters.

I bought this book in early SEPT '12 at an open air book market in Amsterdam. Had the intention of giving it to a friend in the U.S. who is into photography and womens' beauty. The pictures and the model are absolutely fabulous! Upon my return, another friend showed a very keen interest in the book, so I gave it to that friend and found another copy on Amazon. What I received was a miniature version of the full size book I purchased in Amsterdam for 20 euros. I will still gift the original friend with the smaller book; he will enjoy it. However, the full size book does much better justice to the beautiful photos.

The book is full of beautiful and provocative images - much what you might expect from Mapplethorpe. Apparently the hardcover version has reached collector or cult status and the price has skyrocketed. I wanted the book for its art so the inflated prices of the hadcover book are not worthwhile for me. But beware that some hardcover veditions that seem to be reasonably priced are actually German prints. If you only want to see the art and are not concerned about the text, the German prints may be a good way to get a hardcover book. I bought this softcover edition, not knowing the text of the hardcover is not present. The art is stunning and Lisa Lyon is alluring. I am very pleased at the bang-for-the-buck value.
