    Madonna Tops 100 Most Sought After Out-of-Print Books List

    Sex, a 1992 picture book by Madonna, led the 2010 edition of BookFinders’ 100 Most Sought After Out-of-Print Books List.

    The annual list should give publishers plenty of ideas, especially since digital books can quickly resurrect backlist titles. The top ten most sought after out-of-print books are listed below. This GalleyCat editor remembers reading a battered paperback copy of Rage in middle school.

    Here’s more about Madonna’s book from the post: “This explicit collection features photos of the Material Girl, without the material, has been a collector’s item since it first hit shelves in 1992. Since Madonna is never one to do something twice, and the fact that the once highly controversial book is less edgy than it once was leads us to guess that Sex will remain out-of-print.” (Via Ron Charles)

      . . . though it remains widely available for download online, for the depraved few crazy enough to care.
      ...it's worse than we thought. it turns out the people at the white house are not secret muslims, they're nerds.

        Sadly, one, the French edition. I want to get an unopened copy one day and put it in a display case on my wall. I have it on my harddrive, too. A fan scanned all the pages so you can read it as you go through it like separate photos.

          The photography is actually pretty damn cool. Some are really classy, others are a bit trashy.

            I can see a collector maybe seeking it out, but anyone else? There's classier and cooler stuff online.

            (ETA: Like a Prayer should have been on last night's Glee.)

              I'd want SEX for two reasons:

              1) I love Madonna.
              2) I love banned books.

                Wow, I can't believe that I almost got rid of my copy just last week. When was this book banned?

                  In many countries upon its release. I'm not certain if some of those have lifted the ban.

                    Todd, just curious… Do you have or have you seen a copy of the Playboy she posed in before she became Madonna?

                      The actual magazine, no, I have not, but I've seen her black and white nudes she did prior to fame.

                        Back when she was attractive.

                            I thought those were the "Desperately Seeking Susan" years. Then again my recollections may be blurred due to the raging hormones of my teenage years.

                              Yes, I believe she did Playboy after she made a musical debut. The black and whites I believe are really old school and were done in the 70s. She had armpit hair and a fucking jungle over her vagina in those black and whites.
