**BOOK IN GENERAL**
This book is a small sampling of photographers work. The reason this book is doomed to fall short of doing justice to the artists featured is it's scope of content and restrictive dimensions. The book is a little over 5"x7" in size and 447 pages. This means the largest picture is restricted to 5x7 portraits, many though are smaller perspective pictures in landscape and portrait. In 437 pages, first 10 pages are admin, the author puts forth 73 photographers. This means you get roughly 6-8 pages of a photographer's work. Out of this, you get around 6 to 10 images to view. It's clear this book is overly crowded. A book like this is hard-pressed to put forth a representative selection of an artist's body of work under these conditions. Consider that I have a book of Nobuyoshi Araki's photography in a 12"x8" book with well over 500 pages. With only showing one artist's work with so many pages, you still leave feeling that you only got a small sampling of his photography. Now imagine instead that there are 73 artists instead of one. You feel like you only got a nibble, not a meal. To be fair, Araki has had a long career, and for what this book provides for the excellent price, it's a great starting point to gain exposure to artists and a wide variation of the theme; "Erotic Photography." What helps is the first page of a each photographer being showcased gives their name, a couple of words about them and names of books and/or websites when applicable. You will have to follow up on the photographer through other means if you like what they have done.

**TYPES OF PHOTOGRAPHY**
I won't say that I feel any artist's photography is good or bad. Just remember that the keyword in the book's title is erotic.

Format: Paperback
Maxim Jakubowski has a tough job. Nearly every five years he is faced with the daunting task of combing through thousands of photographs of naked women to find the ones distinctive enough to make the cut in books like this third volume of his "Mammoth Book of New Erotic Photography." (Can you detect our sarcasm?)

Featuring a humongous list of famed international photographers, Jakubowski has sought to showcase the work of photographers whose work cannot be described merely as sexy or sensual, but rather, stylish, artful and in many cases, edgy. Beyond the mini-portfolios of about 75 photographers, there are descriptive introductions to each lensman's (and several lenswomen's) work.

Getting into the heads of each photographer is part of Jakubowski's mission and for those wishing to use these pages as an introduction to more of the photographer's portfolio, each section has a weblink for digging deeper into the vault.

While the concept of a large international compendium of this photography is certainly a worthy tool, the small size format (especially given the word `mammoth' in the title) of the pages only begs the question of just how impressive this work would be in a larger format. In a word... very.

This book is small but the quality of printing is top notch and it is rather under valued.

You'll see a variety of erotic, nude, fashion meet erotica and fetish photography works in one place.

The sample works of 75 different photographers are being shown in this book including the photographs made by Eric Kroll, Peter Gorman, Dave Naz, Vanda Spengler, Luis Durante, Wolf189, Rebecca Tillett, Michele Serchuk, Christine Kessler and many more.

I could easily imagine it in a larger format.

This 448-page collection of erotic photographs is very well done. The book's format is only 7.6 X 5.5 inches but that smaller format allows the book to be sold at an affordable price. The last collection of so-called Erotic Photographs that this reviewer bothered reviewing was "The New Erotic Photography Tachen 25th Anniversary Edition of Erotic Photographs." It was the most disappointing collection I'd ever received from Tachen with the possible exception of the their recent edition of "Helmut Newton: Polariods."(Feel free to read those reviews on the Amazon listing sites for the books).
This collection of more than 70 international photographers was much better than either of those previously mentioned titles because it was limited to a collection of erotic photographs of females. The editor Maxim Jakubowski did a good job with his selections. The various photographers represent many different styles of photography. Humor was noticeable from the first double page-spread "R & L Restaurant" at street address 69 that was taken by Gary Breckheimer. Breckheimer gives new meaning to the term street photographer.
Richard Kadrey is a fetish photographer and digital artist living in San Francisco and he has several humorous photos included in the book involving candle wax and Victor Mouse Traps just to mention two of them. There is another very funny photograph on page 308 taken by Mikhail Paramonov of a beautiful nude model peering out the window of a very interestingly shaped, and partly destroyed ancient tower. The viewer will have to see it to fully appreciate the humor. Rebecca Tillett adds another good chuckle to the funny picture category with her closet case that appears on page 402. Mayumi Yoshimaru contributes some more photographic satire and humor on page 447.
