Product Description

Review

A decidedly adult twist on the old-school animation process…. A trio of flip books…portrays the alabaster-skinned vixen shedding vintage clothes or glittery costumes through three of her favorite routines.... For extra fun, flip ‘em in reverse—and watch the burlesque queen put all her clothes back on. (Los Angeles Times)

“A highlight of Art Basel Miami Beach…Von Teese mounted a stage… in a pool at the Delano Hotel and did one of her signature burlesque shows, a coy striptease that left her naked except for [pink crystal panties] and pasties, straddling a giant lipstick that bucked like a mechanical bull.” (New York Times)

“If anyone thought that Dita Von Teese was a passing character upon the pop culture stage, they’d be advised to take a closer look. . . . This queen of burlesque is proving to be the sort of, multifaceted player who is anything but a flash in the pan.” (Interview)

“Burlesque dancer and model Dita Von Teese has not only mastered the art of taking her clothes off, but she’s also the best in the business.” (Esquire UK)

“In a sea of naked-faced, denim-clad Hollywood beauties, [Dita’s] rouged, primped appearance and unabashed glamour were as exotic as a bird of paradise in a room full of daisies.” (Elle)

“Just when you thought all was lost, along comes burlesque superheroine Dita Von Teese, a curvaceous, alabaster-skinned…immaculately coiffed stripper with a fondness for retro fashions and the attention to detail to do it right. Dita is giving burlesque a sweetly seductive second life and…more than a touch of class.” (Vanity Fair)

“Dita was like a revelation to me the first time I met her. She is a dream come true, the ultimate elegant showgirl.” (Christian Louboutin, Los Angeles Times)

“What made her such a compelling front-row presence was her knack for dressing head to toe in the work of the designer showing…but never once compromising her unique Bettie Page look. It was a magical trick….. Become a brand unto yourself. Know your signatures and stay true to them.” (Vogue)

“Uninhibited, seriously smart and wickedly funny, Von Teese is a woman who refuses to allow her truth to be defined by moments captured thru the lenses of the paparazzi” (944 Magazine)

“She is the queen of the modern burlesque revival, not just because she’s mind-bendingly gorgeous and knows how to move, but because her commitment to the details of her art borders on the obsessive.” (Flaunt Magazine)

“She’s a jewel. The most beautiful and inspiring creature I’ve ever seen - so exquisite, so fine. She’s a real showgirl.” (Mr. Pearl, Vogue)

“The entrancing pocket Venus Dita Von Teese, the queen of the burlesque revival, she of the Vargas Girl looks and the Gibson-girl figure. Dita’s old-fashioned act conjures images of Gypsy Rose Lee, another legendary strip-teaser known for dressing up beautifully as she was for undressing.” (Vogue)

“She radiates old Hollywood glamour....With her raven hair, exciting body, engaging face and up-for-anything demeanor, Dita is a Bettie Page for our time.” (Playboy)

“Self-named, self-invented, self-satisfying: Dita Von Teese is the greatest romantic creation of the modern age.” (Pop)

“We’ve had more calls about Dita than any other show we’ve done, even Madonna. We could have sold out four nights and then some.” (Marc Smith, Koko, on selling out the famed UK venue in less than 24 hours)

About the Author

Dita Von Teese is the brightest star in burlesque since Gypsy Rose Lee. As style icon and muse to artists, designers, and photographers, she has appeared on magazine covers and runways for Jean Paul Gaultier, Moschino, and Giambattista Valli, and is the performer of choice for Marc Jacobs, Christian Louboutin, and Louis Vuitton. Her DIY beauty ethos and entrepreneurial ventures—designing award-winning perfumes, lingerie, gloves, and clothes, and as directing producer on her touring stage extravaganzas—have established her as a role model to women. Her books include the bestseller Burlesque and the Art of the Teese/Fetish and the Art of the Teese and Dita: Stripteese. Dita and her feline, Aleister, live under the gaze of the star-viewing Griffith Observatory in Los Angeles.

I am a huge fan of Dita and I think these little flip books are a beautiful way to show three of her famous routines. I especially like the Martini Glass one. The quality of the photographs are stunning and the presentation of the three mini flip books in the box is really lovely and ideal as a gift for any Dita Von Teese fan. It really captures her art of burlesque perfectly.
Anyone buying this expecting a full on book about her life and life in burlesque with pictures will be disappointed, but then this is not what this item is about. There are several other books which detail her art and include beautiful photographs from her shows and from her modelling which are available.

Purchased this book for my daughter who is a photographer and loves these kind of images as they are beautifully shot and tastefully presented.
She was very pleased with the book and its content.
Make a lovely gift for anyone into photography and modelling. Good quality prints with a nice cover for the book too.

I can see what she is doing with this book. Burlesque is a throwback to the early part of the 20th century, which I would imagine would suit these mini flipbooks perfectly. Trouble is it's now the 21st century. We now have many different types of media to consume.
Nothing wrong with the photography. For me the big problem is the books are just too small. Imagine a small travel pack of playing cards. And because they are flip-books, you've flipped through all three in about a minute in order to get the 'motion effect'.
Sorry Dita. I love you but I don't love these.

I received this for my birthday, i am an avid collector of Art Books and Photography Books, i would reconmmend this product to anyone with simular interests. Its beautifully packaged and presented, the product looks like a hardcover book, but actually opens and contains 3 flip books of Ditas best shows. Really tastefully done and beautiful to watch. The best coffee table book i own.

My husband bought me this for a present, its a beautifully presented 3 Flip-book set with hundreds of images of Dita, in the usual flipbook style, flip the pages and the images 'move' The little books come presented in the bigger pink outer case, and that is tied with a lovely little ribbon.

A perfect gift for any Dita fan

Nicely presented set with three mini Dita Von Teese 'flipbooks' containing photographs of Dita doing her famous routines. Unfortunately more emphasis on presentation than content, I feel that they could have been a little bit more in here to give it a higher rank of stars. Having said that, this is fine for the die-hard Dita fan and ideal as a stocking filler for Christmas.
