There's a brief introduction by Giuseppe Tornatore and a short forward by Monica herself, and then the rest of the book is literally filled with glorious photos. Most are full page images (approx. 40cm by 25cm), although there are a few double-page spreads, as well as a couple of fold-out triple-page photos. In most, Monica is in various stages of undress ... and there are several images depicting full nudity. The photos represent a range of styles - expressing grace, fun, eroticism, seduction, and so much more. While many are head shots, most show-off this model's perfect body. For me, the best images are those that capture a sense of intimacy - especially those featuring Monica while's she's pregnant.
This is a wonderful book. The hardback edition comes with a protective dustjacket (featuring the image as seen in the Amazon listing), and every page has a red satin finish. The book is slightly larger than described on Amazon. It's an impressive collection of fantastic photos ... and it's for fans. Anyone who recognises Monica Bellucci for who she is ... as perhaps the most beautiful woman in the world ... will enjoy this book. Although it's quite pricy - at about £30 - it's certainly worth it. If I had to describe it in a single word, it would be: "Wow!"
There is an introduction from Giuseppe Tornatore and from Monica herself sharing some personal thoughts. The rest are photos, lots of them! The book is of a very high quality, the hard cover is covered with red satin, the jacket on it shows another photograph of Monica Bellucci. A great book to own for a fan, also would make a great present.
