Kelly chose the self-publishing route to sidestep the constraints of commercial publishing, allowing him to reflect his signature level of extravagance – right down to the hand stitched pages. The book is limited to a release of 900 copies + 100 special edition copies.Described by Blink magazine as “ground breaking for both its innovative layout, dimensions and the scale of the images presented, this limited edition piece cements Kelly’s position as one of the most original and provocative photographers of our time”. His second book “Taken! Entertaining Nudes by Tony Kelly” was released in September 2016 by teNeues and distributed worldwide.
