Warning! This David Bailey book could break your back!

Taschen is launching a monster 440-page retrospective of the work of British photographer David Bailey. Measuring 50 x 70cm, this "Sumo" edition weighs a back-breaking 30kg – and it is so heavy that it comes with its own custom-designed three-legged table so that buyers can actually turn the pages without hurting themselves.

Now aged 81, Bailey became one of the most famous fashion and portrait photographers when still in his twenties during the swinging sixties. He is still a highly-sought after and active photographer, running his studio in central London – not far from where he was born.
