As described by Visionaire: This was our collaboration with DIFFA, Design Industries Foundation Fighting AIDS, and an opportunity to support a cause very close to Visionaire. Anneliese Estrada, DIFFA's creative director and our friend, came to us to raise awareness and money through art. The art dealer Paul Morris helped us gather all the original artwork printed in the issue, which was then exhibited at Charles Cowles Gallery and auctioned, with all of the proceeds benefiting DIFFA's charitable programs. The issue came in a red-satin case with bone latches, modeled after Chinese brocade jewelry boxes. These were made by hand in China, and the work took forever. The fabric refused to adhere to the boards due to, the factory wrote us, ''the humidity caused by the monsoon.'' Each edition opens with an actual print of a three-dimensional photograph of Shalom Harlow shot by Stephane Sednaoui. Sixty more artists contributed their own sexy and suggestive imagery, including Steven Meisel, Barbara Kruger, Nobuyoshi Araki, Nan Goldin, Ross Bleckner, David Armstrong, Jack Pierson, Steven Klein, and Bjork..
