It was also in 1992 when Madonna established her entertainment company, Maverick.           A joint venture was made between Maverick and Time Warner, which gave her an advance payment of 60 million dollars. The joint venture first released Madonna’s book titled Sex. It contained nude and sexually provocative pictures of Madonna taken by photographer Steven Meisel. It was criticized by the media, but the book (tagged at 50 dollars) sold more than 1.5 million copies in just a few days.
