Madonna, Author

Perhaps the most notorious book of our time, Sex was also the largest-grossing illustrated book in history. Photographed by Steven Meisel, written by Madonna and Glenn OBrien, and designed by Fabien Baron, and written by Madonna, the book explored the Material Girl’s innermost sexual fantasies in vividly graphic detail. Thousands of articles addressing the moral, religious, economic, and political implications of Sex. This publishing sensation – the likes of which had never been seen before or since – created so much international attention that virtually all of the editions around the world sold out within a week of release. Sex entered The New York Times Bestseller List at No. 1.
