Heaven HC (2010 Time Home Entertainment) Sports Illustrated Swimsuit comic books
1st printing. By Walter Iooss. "It's a little slice of heaven." That's how Walter Iooss answers when you ask him what it's like to be the photographer on a Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue shoot. Iooss should know. Over a span of 38 years, starting with his his first Swimsuit assignment in the Bahamas in 1972, Iooss has been taking pictures for SI' annual extravaganza of sun , sand and supermodels. For this collection, he has shifted through his personal archives and chosen his 16 favoorite locations, creating a showcase of his most gorgeous and memorable shots, together with candid behind-the-scenes moments and never-before-seen images. Along the way, Iooss one-name wonders - Cheryl, Christie, Paulina, Kathy, Tyra, Petra and Marissa to name a few - in some of the most extraordinary places on the planet. And he brings the whole Swimsuit experience to life with his own commentary and on-site diary entries in a uniquely entertaining mix of collage and annotated photography. As you'll see, it's a heavenly combination. Hardcover, 10 x 14-in, Color interior. Cover price $44.95.
