Book Description

6 Sep 2004
Antonio Lopez (1943-1987) is the Picasso of fashion illustration. An unparalleled virtuoso, he captured the pulse of style at ground zero from the Sixties to the Eighties. Recording and predicting contemporary style trends, he also used his omnivorous versatility to adopt a broad range of art movements in his work, from Pop Art to Surrealism. His illustrations, interspersed with his photographs, of the beautiful people who are part of celebrity folklore - the 15-year-old Jerry Hall, whom he discovered, Grace Jones, Mick Jagger, Faye Dunaway, Paloma Picasso, Jackie Kennedy - make this a thrilling retrospective, packed with unpublished as well as published material. For anyone involved in fashion professionally or as a student, but also for anyone wanting to share the excitement of the raw reality of life at the creative and celebrity edge in the Sixties and Seventies, this is the perfect volume.

1.0 out of 5 stars Dissapointed 23 Aug 2010
By Mel S. - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I ordered the book expecting it to have more of Antonio's fashion illustrations. When I got the book, i was dissapointed to see it was a snooze, it included photos of his friends and some sketches. I am a alumni of F.I.T ,it defintely is not a book any design student would check out of the library, it does not represent Antonio's true fashion work at all so i was decieved by that comment when ordered the book. I love Antonio's fashion sketches and illustration. If that's what you are looking for don't get this book. You will waste your money.

5.0 out of 5 stars ultra cool book with hip pictures of hot people 12 July 2007
By M. Red Earth - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Antonio Lopez and Juan Ramos were two men with fabulous style. In this book, you get a sense of how they saw the world and how they tried to make it a prettier place. Paul Caranicas has created an homage to these two men and their work. It should be required reading for anyone interested in Fashion, Art, Illustration, Culture, and most of all STYLE.

5.0 out of 5 stars A nice introduction to Antonio Lopez's fashion-based art 27 Oct 2007
By D. lane - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Antonio's People is a wonderful book that share about his life and subjects. It shows the inspiration of the colors, movement, and style that Lopez is accredited for. It is a book for someone who wants to learn about Lopez's art during the 1980's and the famous people that he drew.

When I went to art school you either wanted to draw like Antonio or Nagel.
This was such a great book to get now and it really inspired me to start taking drawing classes again.
The photos the copies of the work and bio were all great! it really left me wanting more and more.
Im greedy that way.
