The only thing that I was unhappy with was that the book's dimensions are a bit small. I think of a wider book when I think of a "coffee table book." (I can't recall where I heard that said.) As a consequence, the photographs which are 2 full pages look a bit odd, as they are cut through the middle by the seam of the book. It's not like a magazine that lays flat- this is a thick book. And, of course, the photographs that command two-page spreads are some of the best, so it's really quite a loss.
Titillating yet never prurient, "Revenge" depicts the erotic journeys of three young women who arrive for a respite at a rural manor. Instead, what follows is a series of sexually charged S&M scenes of the women as they become entagled with the Baroness (think "Rocky Horror Picture Show" with a stunning older woman in the antagonist role), her chauffer and her stable boy.
For von Unwerth, a fashion photographer whose work graces the pages of Vogue and Vanity Fair, the work represents a honing of her craft of merging desire with setting. When von Unwerth does it well, as she does here, each element is inextricable from the other.
Unexpected and as far from cliché as nearly any artist working today, "Revenge" stands out as a bar that won't be easy to clear for any who follow in her footsteps. - Fotophile.com
this is a very nice and tempting book, it's made into several scenes each alaborated and very intence showing women in SM oriented scenes both as the controler and the controled while as the book goes the maids and slavegirls take revenge of their misstresses and tormentores. all this done in a playful mouthwatering sexy ways. i haven't been so turned on from photography for a long time. i love those grainy black and whites, it just give everything such a dirty erotic feel!

Though I understand the opinions expressed in the other commentator's reviews on the book being too small a format. I found the small format to add to the intimacy of the content. Read morePublished on August 27, 2003 by TLR
