Product Description

Review

"Pierre et Gilles. Gilles et Pierre. Voici bientot trente ans que le duo fonctionne. Pierre photographie, Gilles peint sur ces images. Il n'y a plus qu'a se laisser emporter dans un univers qui ne doit rien a l'outil informatique. Un monde onirique et kitsch. Un joli petit livre." - Arte News, Bruxelles More bang for your buck!"...a fast-food, high-energy fix on the topic at hand." The New York Times Book Review"

Nice to add to the collection. The book format is small so I think I will need to shop about for the large format hardcover version which was excellent.

A very long time ago a good friend of mine had introduce me to some of the works of Pierre et Gilles, I was so taken by their great art works. Knowing both artist live as a gay couple and very happily in love makes me more adore and admire their works. If you are like me and love to see the true beauty of art and romance together then by all means this iten is for you. Or you can try and get if still been public, the "Pierre et Gilles Double je 1976 - 2007" book. I had to buy the "Pierre et Gilles: Sailors and Sea (icons series)" book for my boyfriends Birthday and he loved it.

This little book has the greatest photography duo's best works ever. It was used but its in mint condition. I loved the service of Brit-Books and I loved the book itself for it has lots of cool photos.

Poor edition, I don't like the selection of the pictures. Nothing new. If you compair with other taschen books, this one is a bad option to purchase.
Just what I was expecting to get. Lovable. 18 May 2013
By Esteban - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This book is just what I was looking for. I originally wanted one of the Pierre and Gilles' huge books, but finding this one at the price it was was a great surprise. That's why I got it. It has some of the greatest photos of them, so it is a very good value. What I disliked is that it didn't come in a decent package and the cover paper was a little damaged. Besides that, I had no problem at all.

I would recommend this product to everyone.
