Being critical 1: Sometimes a picture spans 2 pages, this is not always done taking the fold between the pages into account.
Being critical 2: Some pictures are a little bit too much "art" and people are depicted more as statues then as people or the situation become more important then the people and in my opinion this loses the erotica feeling the book is about. This is however only valid for a few pictures. This has the advantage that it is easier to leave the book lying open, I left it open at one of the more statue like pages for a few weeks and everybody who passed trough thought it to be a book about sculptures. This critical point could be an advantage for some.
I recommend this book for use as a coffeetable book depending on whether this art form is socially acceptable, it is all about naked women.
On the other hand, the part of the setting of the book he probably did not do himself, deciding order and location in the page, was done in an absolutely terrible manner. First, let's be honest, multiple-page photographies work in centerfolds and basically nowhere else, and it works there because you can lay the magazine flat enough to make the distortion of the fold marks negligible. This is basically impossible to do with a hard cover book of this size without destroying the binding. This book contains 106 shots, from which 70 occupy a complete page (just one), therefore, 35 times, when you turn the page, you will find a shot on your left, and a different shot on your right, that can be individually appreciated. But 36 times you will turn the page and find a single shot distributed between the left and the right pages. This, of course, absolutely distorts the photos, absolutely distracts the eye, and takes almost all the enjoyment of looking at the book for the first time.
I may buy again books from Stephen May from the web, where I can't see it before buying it, but I most likely won't buy another book teNeues unless I have it in my hands before paying for it to be sure I will like what I am paying for.
