Madonna, Author

Perhaps the most notorious book ever published in the trade, Sex is also the largest-grossing illustrated book of all time. Photographed by Steven Meisel, designed by Fabien Baron, and written by Madonna, the book explores the Material Girl’s innermost sexual fantasies in vividly graphic form. Thousands of articles addressing the moral, religious, economic, and political implications of Sex focused such international attention on it 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.
