Description:

1st Printing. Signed. 220 pages. Published in 2011. Retrospective collection of photographs on subject. The Special 3D Edition. It is intended to complement rather than replace the regular 2008 First Edition. The images can be viewed without the 3D glasses but will not have the same clarity, depth, and impact. The images spring to life only when one wears the glasses. A brilliant production by Benedikt Taschen: Oversize-volume format. Pictorial 3D hard boards, as issued. Photographs by various contributors. Text by the legendary editor/curator Dian Hanson. 3D glasses enclosed in plastic sleeve that is pasted on the Inside Back Cover. The glasses can be removed by slicing open the sleeve with a pair of scissors. Printed on thick coated stock paper in Cologne, Germany to the highest standards. Without DJ, as issued. Presents, in 3D format, "The Big Penis Book". The better to see and examine you: Taschen's completely riveting history of male nude photography from the standpoint of one overriding fascination: The well-endowed man, "Alpha Male" Incarnated. "It's hard to imagine a book that could beat 'The Big Penis Book' for grabbing attention unless it would be those same unimaginably colossal generative units seen in breathtaking 3D. That pop-up centerfold we joked about adding? In 3D, every page becomes a pop-up! Includes 96 images from the original book plus 8 new bonus photos, transformed into eye-popping 3D by Jon Schnitzer and The Brain Factory, the geniuses whipping up special effects for filmmakers such as Tim Burton. There is a revised Introduction, new layout, and two pairs of red/blue anaglyph glasses included" (Publisher's blurb). The 3D technique is so brilliantly realized that you will not notice the tint in the photographs themselves. And when you put on your glasses, the relevant parts leap off the page as pleasingly palpable contours. "No racial or ethnic group is uniformly large and no group is uniformly small. There are also fans of the small penis for its amazing ability to make one's own penis look larger. Still, who can deny the allure of a big dick?" (Dian Hanson). An absolute "must-have" title for erotic photography collectors. This copy is very boldly and beautifully signed in red pen on the title page by editor/curator Dian Hanson. It is signed directly on the page itself, not on a tipped-in page. This title is now collectible. As far as we know, this is the only such signed copy of the Special 3D Edition available online and has no flaws, a pristine beauty. A rare signed copy thus. 103 plates. One of the finest collections of the male nude ever produced. A flawless copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER EDITION OF THIS TITLE IN OUR CATALOG) ISBN 3836526611. Bookseller Inventory # 16533

Synopsis:

Watch how they follow you around the room

It?s hard to imagine a book that could beat The Big Penis Book for grabbing attention and driving sales, unless it would be those same unimaginably colossal generative units seen in breathtaking 3-D. That pop-up centerfold we joked about adding? In 3-D every page becomes a pop-up! This 220-page, 30 by 30 cm special edition includes 96 images from the original book, plus 8 new bonus photos, transformed into eye-popping 3-D by Jon Schnitzer and The Brain Factory, the geniuses whipping up special effects for filmmakers such as Tim Burton. There is a revised introduction, new layout, and two pairs of red/blue anaglyph glasses included, so the book can be shared with a friend, or simply enjoyed alone after the first pair of glasses wears out.

Unlike other 3-D pictures you may have seen, the photos in The Big Penis Book 3-D do not look distorted when viewed without the glasses. The Brain Factory?s technique is so subtle it?s hard to even detect the red/blue tint in many of the black and white photos, but when you put on your glasses the parts of interest leap from the page, not in flat layers as in old-style 3-D, but as thick, fully rounded, touchable contours.

That this is a red-hot gift book is a no-brainer. From the dawn of 3-D technology, spears, sticks, guns, and rockets have been aimed at the audience to demonstrate the realism of the effect. The special effects in The Big Penis Book 3-D are no less convincing.

From the Author: Dian Hanson is TASCHEN's sexy book editor. As a 25-year veteran of men's magazine publishing, she edited titles including Puritan, Oui, Outlaw Biker, Juggs, and Leg Show. Her many books for TASCHEN include Vanessa del Rio: 50 Years of Slightly Slutty Behavior and R. Crumb's Sex Obsessions.
