A vivid exploration of sexuality is present throughout, from Vivienne Chow's courageous journey into China's red-light district to the breathtakingly revealing yoga poses of Luba Shumeyko.

Adventure seekers can enjoy Craig Vetter's wild account of surviving two weeks with Hunter S. Thompson in Cozumel, while those longing for nostalgia can drift into the hazy 1970s youth with David Lapham's illustration of artist Joe Ando's "Jubilee City."
