Aug 17, Manny rated it liked it Shelves: too-sexy-for-maiden-aunts. We dropped in yesterday at the Otherwise Bookshop in Rome, partly to get out of a sudden thunderstorm, and found that they had a remarkable collection of books.
We'd already looked at a great many of them, and were preparing to leave, when I noticed this boxed book sitting on the top shelf of the art section. I had no idea what it was but was struck by its enormous size; I have rarely seen anything as big. According to data on the web, it's So we ope We dropped in yesterday at the Otherwise Bookshop in Rome, partly to get out of a sudden thunderstorm, and found that they had a remarkable collection of books.
So we opened the box and looked at the book inside. Nearly all of it consists of glossy, high-quality photographs of the eponymous Olga.
Some people claim it's not pornographic, but I beg to differ. If this isn't pornography, then I have trouble understanding what the word means. It's your standard porn magazine fare: Olga nude, Olga in skimpy underwear, Olga doing things with sex toys, Olga doing things with other girls, etc.
If you go to Google Image Search, you can see plenty of examples. There is a short and pretentious foreword. When we got home, I looked it up and was surprised. The book is very rare. No, that is not a typo. Every copy was sold. We called Otherwise and asked how much their copy was. It's an absolute snip at Euros. We thought we might buy it as a speculative investment; Not did some research and decided it would be too hard to resell. But if you're in Rome and you're feeling more optimistic, Otherwise probably still has it sitting there on its shelf.
