Boob art for Christmas

Century has bought BOOBaDOODLE, a collection of photos of breasts decorated with make-up to create "boob-art".

Author Josy Sherry came up with the idea when her boyfriend faced redundancy and she thought he needed cheering up, the publisher said.

Century will publish the book as a small format hardback for Christmas 2011. BOOBaDOODLE was acquired by Hutchinson's Paulette Hearn, who struck a deal for world rights after plucking the title from the slush pile.
