Risko Bookness

Forget about those half-naked-athlete-thinly-veiled-porno coffee table tomes this season. Go with a tasteful classic that should be displayed in your library year-round.

"Risko" is a compilation of works from famed illustrator, caricaturist (and my neighbor) Robert Risko. Edited by Allure contributing editor and "Mississippi Sissy" author Kevin Sessums, with a forward by Vanity Fair editor and Monkey Bar owner Graydon Carter. Risko's celebrity cartoons are instantly recognizable to anyone who's read a Vanity Fair, New Yorker or Interview magazine over the past 30 years (this J.
