Go See itself is a beautifully crafted book with Gold outer Skin with Red etched title. the basic idea behind the book is better described by Amazon so here is their take on it

The studio of photographer Juergen Teller, best known for his fashion pictures, is located in a tiny street in West London. And it is the front door of his studio that somehow seems to play the leading role in this book. During one year, from May 1998 to May 1999, Teller was visited by hundreds of girls, sent to him by agencies for a casting shoot. At the beginning of this book there was a simple idea that struck Teller: why not photograph all his young female visitors and turn the result into a convincing conceptual piece of art photography? The result is striking, sometimes funny, and makes us question the fashion industry and its world of models. We encounter girls, mostly around the age of 16 or 17, presenting themselves to the photographer in the hope of a great career. Sometimes they come alone, sometimes in groups, sometimes accompanied by their parents. Captured in different lights of the changing seasons, but always at the entrance of Teller's studio, the portraits seem to melt into one single portrait - that of the one and only model, whatever she might look like.

Well enjoy and if you can find a copy and have the $$$$ go for it.
