About this deal

Contributions by Ian Alteveer, Kelly Baum, Kim Benzel, Deniz Beyazit, Monika Bincsik, Yaëlle Biro, John Byck, Iria Candela, John T. From the lenticular cover by Gary James McQueen ('Lenticular printing is a technology in which a lenticular lens is used to produce images with an illusion of depth, or the ability to change or move as the image is viewed from different angles') to the layout or deign of the book itself to the extraordinary photography (by Sølve Sundsbø) this book is an art piece by itself.

this gold mine book available in hardcover with lenticular image is a must-have addition to your library and a way of keeping the memory and work of Alexander McQueen alive.Featuring the most iconic and radical designs of his prolific career, Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty examines the designer's evolution from the start of his fledgling label, to his years as creative. Habe ihn wegen einer Kleinigkeit kontaktiert, bekam sofort eine Antwort, das Buch war wirklich makellos, perfekt verpackt und wurde umgehend geliefert. Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty was named one of the Top Ten Best Books of 2011 by Library Journal, included in Time's list of Best Gift Books for 2011 and listed in the Best of Art Books section of The Wall Street Journal's Gift Guide.

I first saw mcqueens work in a documentary about the met gala, and I was immediately struck with how much I gravitated toward his work. McQueen, arguably more of a performance artist than even a fashion designer, used every influence, everything he learned, to form his art in his unique interpretational way.

Being able to skip the queue and enjoy an extra hour before the museum opened was worth every tax-deductible dollar of membership. I wish there were multiple volumes showing more of his work and revealing more of his personal life. Bolton, Andrew, and Amanda Garfinkel, with contributions by Jessica Regan and Stephanie Kramer, photographs by Anna-Marie Kellen. The catalog—with its gorgeous images places alongside provocative, incisive, and often puzzling conversational quotes from the designer himself—makes for an interesting way to get a peek at the show for those of us who won’t be lucky enough to make it to New York this summer.

What really struck me about his art (moving pieces on humans) was the pain he felt, transformed by sharp relief into beauty.I do not follow fashion closely by any stretch of the imagination, but found Alexander McQueen's craftsmanship breathtaking and his complex ideas expressed about Nature, culture, politics, gender, sexuality and beauty really fascinating.
