When Rankin's Heidlilicious arrived, the book was wrapped in shrink wrap. While removing this plastic, I immediately could appreciate the physical quality of this book. It seems many book publishers are looking for ways to reduce the costs associated with publication and quality often suffers as a result. Heidilicious is the exception.

The dust jacket is thick and double folded at the edges, providing sturdy protection to the hot pink cloth bound boards of the book. If the dust jacket is removed, a smooth-lined silhouette of the female form is embossed in white on the front. The contrast between the white figure and the pink cloth is striking.

The binding appears tight and double-stitched and should survive more than one generation of heavy use.

The high quality of Rankin's photographs are consistent throughout the book and the paper stock used for printing is thick high quality gloss. The ink goes all the way to the edges of the paper.

The mood of the photographs remains playful throughout, but the approach is very dynamic. Heidi mimics a kitten, is clothed only with chocolate syrup, reveals an angry clenched-fisted snarl, frolics nude on the beach, and remains stunningly sexy regardless.

There is a text interview by her husband, Seal, and an interview of Heidi herself. This text is translated into several languages and first appears to be longer than actuality.

If searching for criticism, one may discover a couple of page-spanning photographs that are interrupted by the middle seam of the book, making them difficult to fully appreciate.

Overall this is a quality photographic essay of personality and liberating sexuality. Rankin provides a beautiful collection that constantly reminds of the playful fun side of humanity, and choosing Heidi to help inspire this message was brilliant.

Holy Heidi! This book is as gorgeous as it's namesake. Beautiful binding, unparalleled print quality, very heavy stock: Wow! When I saw this book, I knew I had to have it, and every time I open it, I'm as happy as I was the day it arrived.

What continues to strike me is the relationship that comes across in Rankin's photos. He and Heidi are comfortable with one another. You always hear "smile with your eyes" on shows like America's Next Top Model: in this book, Heidi smiles with her whole body and Rankin captures every inch of it.

Heidi is always my god of love, so this portfolio book is one of the "must have" in my book shelf. Rankin's angle to see Heidi is really fantastic and you'll find that there is many many photoes are published in fashion magazines before, so..why not buy this one with nice binding!!? By the way, if you're a collector, you should buy one...otherwise, you'll feel bad with your finger-prints on it!?!

I loved this book! Every portrait, every composition is a world apart. I am an amateur photographer and for me, this is an amazing bedside book.

Much ado about nothing. She's cute, but minimal skin.

I guess because of the cover I was expecting more playful outfits. Something a little more playful Victoria Secret like. It is definitely not that. It is an artsy look at some photographs of Heidi. The book, paper and binding get a 5 star for sure very, very well done. I wish they would redo this with some more of the stuff the demographic might like.
