"...244-page masterwork of photographic tributes to the Italian model, actress and not-at-all-unattractive person" ~UrbanDaddy

I've always been a huge fan of Monica Bellucci, and was hell-bent on getting this book when it first came out. Unfortunately, like many people, I wasn't fast enough to order it, as the book became unavailable seemingly days after it went up for sale on here. It was months before I was able to order a copy, but before the chance came, I kept trying to convince myself that I didn't want this book. After all, I'd only seen 4 or 5 scans of the photos contained within, and kept telling myself 'oh, it's probably just a bunch of the same style of black and white photos'. Boy I couldn't be more wrong. This book is worth every dollar, and I don't feel bad at all about paying the full retail price.

It took a long time before I made it to the end of this book, as every photograph is a stunner, regardless of how simple some of them seem. The diversity in the photos is phenomenal- Monica in a busy dinner scene, her laying atop a stuffed lion, what looks like honey smeared all over her face as she licks it up, her in an obscenely tight corset, frolicking in the grass looking like she's genuinely having a good time...I could go on and on. My absolute favorite pictures are the 3 taken by Fabrizio Ferri of Monica when she was pregnant. I'd have included them in the attached video, but of course, like a good number of the photos, she's nude in them, and I can't exactly post that. And I love how the final pictures are of Monica with her child. It's a fitting end to everything. Regarding the photography, how many times can I repeat myself in saying that each photo is a keeper? This is the kind of thing that makes me want to get back into photography because of how inspiring it is.

Hopefully the couple of images I got in the video portion of this review are helpful.

If there is a book that you can hold in your hands and feel its power, its beauty, the life within it and the raw sensual energy... this is the one.

Monica Bellucci is one of the most beautiful women I have ever seen. She has a presence about her that exudes femininity, gracefulness, lust, intensity. She is a woman who knows her own body, and wields it with skilled deliberate tenacity.

There are 150 photographs of her in this, taken over a 20 year period by amazing photographers. Its a big slick hard gorgeous book with red edges on the pages..a work of art, that contains a work of art.

She turns me on. She turns my man on. And that makes for a good ..read.

This is a splendid book full with artistic photographs of the most beautiful actress of the World, there are samples of some of her photo sessions throughout the years, many of those I have seen them before, but around one third of them were new for me, I really like her first photo session at age thirteen you could see the innocence of a beautiful teenager and you could tell from that time she was going to become a breathtaking model.

I remember I missed purchasing this book when it was first released on Amazon. It sold out so quickly. And then afterwards, for the longest time, private sellers was selling this book for triple the cost. Then Amazon restocked it's copies but they only lasted a few days before it sold out again. This happened over the course of a year. I jumped on it this time. I tell you, the wait was worth it. I see why the demand is so high for this book. Its beautiful. Heck, Monica is beautiful. The images are huge, there is enough content to satisfy anyone. If you are like me and missed out on previous opportunities don't miss out again. Right now the book is aback on Amazon and they are offering it for an excellent price. Once it's gone people will be selling it again for some crazy price.

This is a big, heavy book of photographs of a woman so beautiful that the word "beautiful" is too mild. It seems almost impossible that any person could look so good from every angle and every distance and every pose. Monica B is one in a billion. And before you balk at the price, know that proceeds from this book support two of Monica's favorite charities, both worthwhile causes.

I've been a great fan of Monica Bellucci since whenever and I'm glad I got this book showing her many different photo sessions she's done throughout with various photographers. A good portion of these I've seen before appearing in different magazine publications both in black/white and color. I'm glad these photo sessions have finally been gathered in a single book because I've enjoyed Monica's willingness to try different things in these shoots. If you're a fan of Monica's photo sessions then I'd recommend this book.

Monica Bellucci has an effortless quality to her beauty undiminished by the various circumstances on display in this book. Her fashion sense is above reproach; she is served equally well by black & white and color images. As she demonstrated in her role as a courtesan/spy in BROTHERHOOD OF THE WOLF; draped or undraped; she is a force to be reckoned with. As she proved in her role as a lactating prostitute in SHOOT 'EM UP, she subverts the gestalt of femme fatale into a contemporary alpha woman, and we are quite fortunate to have her in our midst. A handsomely-produced book of an unapologetically beautiful woman: what's not to love about MONICA BELLUCCI?
