"Dear Sir/Madam" begins the missive from an imaginary
correspondent. "I love big breasts as much as the next man, but here in

tiny bookshelf, not to mention my Lilliputian hands. Couldn’t you make a
petite edition that still features 150 or so magnificently endowed
ladies from the golden age of natural curves for those like me, who live

affordable, since my pockets are as shallow as this premise?"
Done! The Little Book of Big Breasts features over 150 celebrated big breast models from the 1950s, 60s and 70s, including Michelle
Angelo, Virginia Bell, Roxanne Brewer, Joan Brinkman, Lorraine
Burnette, Lisa Deleeuw, Uschi Digard, Sylvia McFarland, Chesty Morgan,
Roberta Pedon, Rosina Revelle, Janie Reynolds, Candy Samples, Tempest
Storm, Mary Waters, June Wilkinson, and Julie Wills, plus Guinness Book of World Records bra-buster Norma Stitts
in a compact and inexpensive soft-cover format. Photos come not just
from the original 398-page Brobdingnagian edition, but from subsequent Big Breast Calendars, meaning that 40% of the content is unique to this edition.
