The biggest and most expensive book production in the 20th century SUMO is a titanic
book in every respect: it is a tribute to the twentieth century's most influential,
intriguing and contro-versial photographer.
Measuring 50 x 70 cm (20 x 27.5 inches) and weighing approx. 30 kg (66 lb.), the
book contains 480 pages, breaking any previous record. SUMO is a truly unique publication.
SUMO, edited by June Newton, features a wide selection of over 400 pictures, most
of which are published for the first time, covering every aspect of Newton's outstanding
career in photography: from his stunning fashion photographs, which pointed the way
for generations of photographers, to his nudes and celebrity portaits.
In defiance of the much-loved Japanese discipline that inspired the title of this
colossal work, there is no need for it's proud owner to wrestle with SUMO. Philippe
Starck has designed a unique device for displaying the book at home.
SUMO is available to all Newton fans and photo devotees in a limited edition of 10.000
copies, all numbered and signed by the artist.
