A sturdy, flat box that opens easily: this is the door into the world of cosmetic surgery. Singular Beauty, with photographs by Cara Phillips. Pictures with not a soul to be seen. Cool, clinical images with equally cool, clinical design.

The shiny box, the smooth paper, the many blank intermediate pages, the captions printed in reverse on the inside of the same folded blank pages: it all serves to heighten the impression. One member of the panel had difficulty with the staples that had been used for this book – wasn’t this deserving of some nice Japanese binding? The rest of us were perfectly happy with it, however, so this one too was allowed through.
