XXX 30 PORN-STAR PORTRAITS by Timothy Greenfield-Sanders. Hardcover with Dust Jacket, As New, 2004, First Edition, Bulfinch Press, ISBN: 0-8212-7754-5, size 10 1/4 x 12 1/8 inches, 144 pages plus endpapers, O/P. Full color, printed in Spain. The portrait portion takes an opposing full page, clothed/unclothed, approach to presenting the people in this book. Photographs of "classic" film stars Christy Canyon, Nina Hartley, Ron Jeremy, Ginger Lynn, Sharon Mitchell, and Peter North, are mixed in with newer performers like Jenna Jameson and Lex Steele. Each star has a brief, but informative, biography with photo and a top ten list of their favorite films in which they appear. Scattered throughout this volume are fascinating essays and commentaries by John Waters, Salman Rushdie, Whitley Strieber, John Malkovich, Lou Reed, Nina Hartley, and others. Humorously, the dust jacket depicts unique "presentable" images of the less "socially acceptable" actual book cover pictures. Introduction by Gore Vidal. Obviously, you must be 18 years of age or older to order this book. Note: There is some glare from the scan on the image bottom left side; the cover is fine.  See partial cover  $35
