I've always enjoyed Jakubowski's eye for a great erotic photograph in the past, and this new volume does not disappoint. The book offers exceptional value for money, containing over 6 pages of content from each of the 70 plus photographers featured. There are some established names to be found here including, Eric Kroll, Chas Ray Krider, Peter Gorman, Christine Kessler and Dave Naz to name a few, but in my opinion it's some of the the new names included that excite most; Primarily Hudson Manilla, Ben Fernon, and Pierre Dal Corso (amongst others), prove they are gifted photographers of the highest calibre whose imagery is very sexy, but not sexist, in that they do not objectify their subjects. This book is of really high quality and well worth the modest outlay. Highly recommended!

Hi All

I'm new to the photography world so I don't really know any photographers or have any favourites. So from that perspective,I think this is a great book. Even though I've not liked all the submissions in there, I still rate it as it's exposed me to a broad range of photographers and their various styles and I'm starting to learn what I like.

This is a book full of excellent photos - depicting young women in erotic poses. It's titled 'The Mammoth Book' - and it is! It's nearly 500 pages long, and virtually every page is a full-colour image of an attractive naked model.

The theme is erotica - and many of the poses are quite unusual. The idea is to stimulate thought and imagination, to arose the intellect (not just the body). Yet many of these images are also physically arousing. However, there is nothing pornographic about this book. Its content is adult-oriented, but not explicit.

It's a collection of photos by several different photographers - aimed at presenting some of the best examples of erotica. It's a glossy publication, and presets itself nicely. Yet, its cover is perhaps a little too thin (as it tends to bend and curl-up unless pressed flat). And because the book is so think, its spine has a slight tendency to crack. But these issues do not detract from the quality of the photos.

This is a good book for someone who is just starting out in photography,many of the shots are interesting in composure and lighting while not being outright pornography.In my opinion the biggest letdown was the size of the book itself - being little more than A5 sized much of the detail is lost.
However this seems is counterbalanced by the relatively cheap price.

If you are interested in this genre of photography, then I strongly recommend this book. This book does exactly what it says on the tin, it is filled with photographs that will inspire you and get your creative juices flowing. Along side the photographs is a short biography of the photographer who took the pictures.

What I liked about this book is that it does not try to be a 'Jack of all trades and a master of none'. If you are looking to learn about lighting techniques, rule of thirds and composition, then this book is not for you. There are other books on the market that cover these topic.

Looking through the photographs I cannot find any that are the least bit erotic. In fact most seem to be dreary and if I had known what I do now I would never have purchased this book.

This is the third Mammoth book of erotic photography I buy and they keep getting worse.

The only good photographers I could find in the book were female photographers, although not all of them are great either.

I particularly liked the female photographers Elisa Lazo de Valdez, Valeria Lazareva and Soukizy.

Most (a few good exceptions) of the male photographers seem to be more focused on the experience they might be having of photographing these women and less focused on making good artistic photography. I think they must get sidetracked or blinded by the nudity and can't see passed it - thinking that a beautiful naked woman is enough to make a good photograph. In my opinion, it's not enough.

So if you are looking for a good photography book, look elsewhere. If you are simply looking for naked women, look no further!

Hi, this one is quite ok, alright maybe it's not Helmut Newton but definitely there are few very nice pictures included. Less interesting pictures can be always used for CD covers. I think this book is worth these few quid.
