Author's own photographs, rather sombre imagery. This book was specially printed for the press launch of Karl Lagerfeld's JAKO perfume. Karl Lagerfeld asked publisher Steidl to create a book of his own photography for the press launch of his new perfume, 'Jako'. The publisher recounts: “As the books were placed on the seats, I realised they smelt very strongly of fresh ink on paper, and it didn’t strike me as the ideal situation for a perfume launch ... I told Karl that I didn’t think we should put out the books, but he simply replied: Rubbish! The smell of a freshly printed book is the best perfume in the world”. Not an erotic item. Quantity of print-run unknown, small.
