The lenticular cover of a portrait of Alexander McQueen changing by degree into a skull is a stunning piece of book design. This is the book that was produced for the Metropolitan Museum of Art exhibition in New York. Clothes are shown on lifeless white painted manequins and mostly photographed in black and white. In a way it is a pity that this book wasn’t expanded and re-edited to include the changes which were made for the”Savage Beauty’ exhibition at the V&A London. It would have been good to see working notes or drawings of how the designs started out. Terrifuc book for students of fashion.

It a stylish book that i think the creative McQueen would of approved of. The cover flickers from a scull to McQueen face blending what i see as his creative talent and him, something worth spending a few min's or longer to admire. The book inside is fantastic is shows some pieces from all along his career in stunning print. All the pieces are mounted on Mannequins and i feel picturing them like this may not do them justice. I think i may of liked to see other images such as the Kate Moss Hologram Autumn/Winter 2006 as a selection of picture formats (presenting his talent as a artist) or maybe images taken of him in the Face say 1998 taken by Knight was such a powerful image. But never the less a book worth having and am happy to have it

Bought this as a gift for myself as I am a die-hard McQueen lover. However, it would make the perfect gift for anyone who has an interest in fashion or high quality coffee table books. The pictures of his work are huge, glossy and detailed, really emphasising his stunning work. Also included are some of McQueen's own sketches and an interview with Sarah Burton who continues his legacy.

This is a rare homage to an even rarer genius. Just lovely.
