In this day and age, with the abundance of books showing the male figure, I'm surprised, and frankly disappointed, that this book contains no full frontal nudity. Early in the book Gandy compares himself to the David by Michelangelo and then you see him standing in a similar pose, with his genitalia fully blacked out. It looks ridiculous. What's the hangup? I"m not asking for pornography, but at least an honest presentation. I would prefer a fig leaf to the black void in this particular photograph.

He's a beautiful man, I like the casual writing of the book but the prudish, puritan almost, nature of the photo selection is disappointing.

The runway shots are predictable and the Klein group shots are boring. The paparazzi shots are unnecessary, why in red?

I have never paid this much for a book, but I feel it was worth the investment. The book is HUGE and the images are BEAUTIFUL. If you are a fan of David Gandy, Mariano Vivanco or just appreciate the beauty of the male form, you will enjoy this book.

This is a wonderful book. David Gandy is a God, the photographers are the best. The book has style, fashion, some nudity and maybe the number onde male model in the world. I live in Brazil and I saw this book when I was in New York. I didn't buy it at the time because is too heavy, so I ordered at Amazon.I like fashion, photography and David Gandy, of course. I really recommend this book. It's a must have!

I purchased this hardcover book without batting an eyelash, and I don't care how much it cost either!!! great photography and great profile !! I knew that all of this proceeds will go to his charities as he mention in one article I read. I'm a great fan of his and I even get an invite to see him walk a ramp one time when he visited manila!!! I love his blog too, very charming and witty!!

This beautiful book is quite impressive in both quality of its linen wrapped binding, quantity of pages and of course, magnificent artistic photography of the beautiful nature of model David Gandy. This is a must have and a must-give for any occasion.

Format: Hardcover
DAVID GANDY BY DOLCE & GABBANA my seem like a strange name for a monograph, a title suggesting that the fashion firm 'created' the most popular model in the world at this moment. But in essence the company IS responsible for the status of this iconic male model. According to the PR David Handy is British by birth, living outside London and a fanatic for cars who entered the modeling arena via contest and whoosh! - the rest is history.

Gandy is the epitome of the macho look - ruggedly handsome without being too pretty to the camera lens. He obviously works the gym routinely and maintains the amount of muscularity and tone without progressing to the bulging biceps and thighs look that are simply incompatible with fashion modeling. He is now the model of choice y all fashion photographers but continues to devote his major interests tot he company that launched his career with the premiere of the fragrance Light Blue.

Mario Testino, Steven Klein, Giampaolo Sgura, and Mariano Vivanco are just four of the photographers whose magic is focused on David Gandy in this hefty and impressive monograph and they have captures Gandy in full fashion styles ready for the walkway, casual shots of the model in street clothes, and many images without clothing (no frontal nudity here) that allow the reader to see the perfection of this man's anatomy. For some models this many images could become wearing, but David Gandy has style and charm and he obviously loves the camera: the results, a panorama of one man's exposure in and out of Dolce & Gabbana couture.

The essay is by Cambridge University educated Peter Howarth who writes with the same degree of flair that David Gandy shows the camera.

I had been awaiting this book to come in because I wanted a great range of photographs of David and thats what I got. While I was hoping to recieve a frontal shot, there are none here. This is definitely a gem on the shelf.
