"Von Unwerth's newest work is a wild and sexy romp. Long known for her provocative work in the fashion world, here she is the director on the set, creating a sadomasochistic story, told solely in photographs, which delves into sexual obsession. Revenge begins with a trio of young women arriving at the Baroness's estate expecting a relaxing weekend. The Baroness, her chauffeur, and her stablehand soon have them involved in something quite different."--the publisher
Slight rippling to print; otherwise all contents Very Fine.
