'McQueen’s brilliance is celebrated in this sumptuous tome…The hologram cover makes it a collector’s item.' - Harpers Bazaar

An exquisitely designed book of McQueen's dramatic creations

Accompanying the Metropolitan Museum of Art's landmark exhibition, Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty provides an in-depth look at one of Britain's most brilliant and provocative fashion designers. 

The cover has a single, holographic image of McQueen's face that dissolves, at a tilt, into a molten metal skull. Inside photographer Solve Sundsbo's full-page mannequin photographs make the designer's creations float, dance, and strut. Sensitive and intelligent introductions and personal quotes throughout the book explore McQueen's career, working methods, and the complex psyche behind his dramatic creations.

There is enough detail to satisfy the student of fashion and enough visual splendour to entice and entrance coffee table book lovers. This is a glorious beast of a book - something that is a delight to read, look at and savour.

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.
