The book arrives shrinkwrapped inside a red protective cardboard case marked MAPPLETHORPE The Complete Flowers.
I purchased this as a 50th Birthday present for a friend, who I knew was a fan of the flowers series. It is one of the best art books I've seen on photography. Beautifully printed, must weigh 2 to 3kgs, something like that.
If you know a Mapplethorpe fan who has a special birthday, or occasion, coming up, it's a perfect present and you don't have to worry about offending their sensibilities unlike some of his other work.
