Fine (with variant cover printed in yellow and pink colors only [plates are fine], with slight rubbing to the covers, a flaw that is endemic to the title, affecting most all copies of the book that were not shrink-wrapped).


This book was not distributed in the United States. From Magnum: "Between 2006 and 2008 Martin Parr documented the differences in beach culture between Latin American countries whilst traveling with his wife Susie. Her text accompanies the photos in the book. The book is printed to look purposely cheap, with noticeable imperfections, somewhat like a book you'd find in a 99 cent store, complete with offset colors and gaudy clip-art style graphics."
