Really good book
I wanted this for ages it cost a bomb but I really enjoyed his work in galleries in London and thought his book is an artwork itself

Print quality pretty bloody good

Porn not something to wank over

It's art showing you the glamour and the shit of the real porn industry and engages the libidinal economy debates

Also it's art engaging with pop culture and it goes both ways pop informs art informs porn

Plus best thing the prints go out to edge of the page and it shiny
