For 20 years, Italian coffee brand Lavazza has been producing phenomenal calendars with a star studded cast of photographers. Helmut Newton, Ellen Von Unwerth, Ferdinando Scianna, Elliott Erwitt, David LaChapelle, and Annie Leibovitz are just a few of the folks that have produced enduring images mixing coffee and photography.
Lavazza: Con Te Partiro (Lavazza: With You I Go), is a new book from Rizzoli that brings together the full collection of calendar photographs for the first time. Edited by Fabio Novembre, the book is a voyage for the senses where the female figure is celebrated as a guide to pleasure and beauty. Original drawings by Milo Manara, a master of the erotic graphic novel, are also included.
