Madonna Tops 100 Most Sought After Out-of-Print Books List

By Jason Boog Comment

Sex, a 1992 picture book by Madonna, led the 2010 edition of BookFinders’  100 Most Sought After Out-of-Print Books List.

The annual list should give publishers plenty of ideas, especially since digital books can quickly resurrect backlist titles. The top ten most sought after out-of-print books are listed below. This GalleyCat editor remembers reading a battered paperback copy of Rage in middle school.

Here’s more about Madonna’s book from the post: “This explicit collection features photos of the Material Girl, without the material, has been a collector’s item since it first hit shelves in 1992. Since Madonna is never one to do something twice, and the fact that the once highly controversial book is less edgy than it once was leads us to guess that Sex will remain out-of-print.” (Via Ron Charles)
