McQueen had a rare talent to produce beautifully crafted pieces and alongside a handful of other designers, past and present, is a designer whose work I respect and find inspiring. This weighty tome is published by the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York to accompany their spring 2011 exhibition in celebration of McQueen’s work.
The cover has an eerie holographic image of McQueen morphing into a metallic skull. The book is beautifully bound in brown fabric with metallic embossed title down the spine and when you open it…
There are lengthy and interesting introductions by the curator of the exhibition Andrew Bolton and by the respected fashion journalist Susannah Frankel, but the book is dominated by beautiful photographs of some of McQueens key works alongside quotes from the man.
In future, when I feel in need of a little creative pick-me-up, I know where I’ll be going.
