There are several books featuring Antonio and his work yet somehow none of them really conveys his multiple facets and talents to their fullest extent.
Lovely images but nothing really gets the new generation to understand his brilliant range of illustration techniques, his ability to perfectly capture the moment and his extraordinary joie de vivre.
He was a unique talent and we are still waiting for another unique talent to capture him in print in book form.

People who like Antonio's work probably have earlier books. This one tells more about Antonio as a person, and provides quite a lot of trivia about his friends and muses.

Such a marvelous selection of Antonio's work went into this amazingly stunning book. It does not disappoint at all; with every turn of every page one gets more and more enveloped by a world that Antonio had created and with this book one can revisit that world and Antonio's heyday to it's full glory. A definite must buy for everyone and anyone who dares to love fashion, art, sex, and disco.

Imaginative, Daring, Beautiful - the work of Antonio Lopez. 27 Nov. 2013
By Edward Pollack - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I knew Antonio back in the day, and it was great to see his work collected and presented so beautifully, and in the context of the times, and of Antonio's personal life. He took something that everyone else did in a straightforward way: the illustration of clothes, and raised it to a high level of artistry. Imaginative, daring, beautiful, quintessentially of an era, and yet timeless.
