Great book of previously unpublished private photographs by celebrated architect, designer and pervert Carlo Mollino. Consisting of portraits of hostesses procured by a friend, it’s an amazing book of atmospheric nudes. Mollino worked very much with the process and re-touched and/or partially coloured all of the photographs by hand.
