Overview

“Coffee and photography are children of our age. Both generate energy and both are fastly enjoyed. Neither needs to be decoded.”  --Francesca Lavazza.
 
For twenty years Lavazza has been producing calendars with the exclusive involvement of master photographers who have made history. Photographers who have contributed to the Lavazza calendar over the years have included Helmut Newton, Ellen Von Unwerth, Ferdinando Scianna, Elliott Erwitt, David La Chapelle, Annie Leibovitz, Jean-Baptiste Mondino, Finlay MacKay, Miles Aldridge, Mark Seliger and many others.
 
For the first time collected together in a book, these photographs are a depiction of seduction and taste, of  beauty and pleasure.  Designed as an imaginary voyage of the senses in which the female figure becomes an icon and guide to a parallel world of pleasure and beauty, this remarkable package also features original drawings by one of Italy’s best known masters of erotic graphic novels and comics, Milo Manara, paired with a narrative by one of Italy’s leading screenwriters, Vincent Cerami.
 
As a special feature, the book also includes the 2012 calendar in which Lavazza continues to celebrate the intimate connection between photography and espresso, pleasure and sensuality.
