In association with Playboy, TASCHEN Sexy Book Editor Dian Hanson and Big Butt Book cover girl Alexis Texas will be making a special appearance at the TASCHEN Store Beverly Hills, June 30th, to launch and sign the heavily anticipated Big Butt Book.
The Big Butt Book explores this perennial fascination with female booty—from small and taut to large and sumptuous—in the fourth installment of Dian Hanson’s critically acclaimed body parts series. Over 400 photos from 1900 to the present day, including works by Elmer Batters, Ellen von Unwerth, Jean-Paul Goude, Ralph Gibson, Richard Kern, Jan Saudek, Ed Fox, Terry Richardson and Sante D’Orazio, of butts ranging from petite Pam Anderson‘s to sumptuous Serena Williams‘, are contextualized by interviews with porn icon John (Buttman) Stagliano, filmmaker Tinto Brass, artist Robert Crumb, bootylicious butt queens Buffie The Body, Coco and Brazil’s Watermelon Woman, plus Eve Howard and her life-long spanking obsession.
Drinks will be provided by Svedka Vodka and served by The Beautiful Bartender group. This event IS OPEN TO THE PUBLIC but due to space limitations it will be on a first come first serve basis and all guests invited must RSVP to store-beverly(at)taschen.com.
