Calvin Klein and Visionaire Team Up for a Technicolor Tome

The cover, before and after sun exposure.

Calvin Klein and Visionaire have teamed up to do the impossible: make publishing a bit more relevant again. The fashion bigwigs are unveiling Visionaire 56 SOLAR, a special-edition coffee-table tome that puts any other snazzy book you have to shame. You see, when exposed to sunlight or UV rays, the black-and-white images turn into bright, gorgeous colors. Oh, why didn't Edward Cullen have this instead of that awful sparkly skin?

But we digress. The book features works by some of fashion's biggest photographers: Mario Sorrenti, Inez Van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin, Richard Burbridge, David Sims, and even Yoko Ono. The official unveiling is tonight, but you can get your hands on a copy for $250, while supplies last, at VisionaireWorld.com.
