the last show before his death in 2010, Lee Alexander McQueen was as celebrated for
the exquisite tailoring, meticulous craftsmanship, and stunning originality of his designs
as he was notorious for his theatrical-and often controversial-runway shows. McQueen
found inspiration for his avant-garde collections everywhere: his Scottish ancestry,
Alfred Hitchcock movies, Yoruba mythology, the destruction of the environment-even
the fashion industry itself. Whatever his inspiration, however, McQueen's concept for his
runway show came first and was crucial to the development of the collection. Every
show had a narrative and was staged with his characteristic dramatic flair. Highland
Rape featured disheveled models smeared with "blood" staggering down the runway in
town clothes. In Scanners, two robots sprayed paint on a model trapped on a spinning
platform. In Widows of Culloden, a hologram of supermodel Kate Moss held center stage.
Other McQueen shows staged models walking through water, drifting snowflakes, rain,
and wind tunnels; pole-dancing in garish makeup at a carnival, playing living pieces in a
bizarre chess game, and performing with trained dancers in a Depression-era-style
marathon. Illustrated throughout with stunning photography and liberally sprinkled with
quotations from McQueen and those who knew him best, Alexander McQueen: Evolution
is the story of the designer's thirty-five runway shows and the genius behind them.

Описание: Lee Alexander McQueen's last show before his untimely death in 2010, titled The Horn of Plenty, functioned as a kind of personal survey in which McQueen revisited his 15-year archive of work, revitalizing it through the new collection. He invited photographer Nick Waplington to document the collection from inception to runway. "It is not just a book about a season in a fashion house," says Waplington; "It is also a personal record of Lee's imagination, his version of himself, and a tribute to the many important and lasting relationships he had with all those who worked alongside him." With over 250 photographs, Working Process allows readers an intimate glimpse into McQueen's dynamic creative process. This boxed limited edition of 100 copies includes an original signed and numbered print by Waplington, which features McQueen behind the scenes at the fashion shoot, from page 36 of the book.

Even 30 years after his death, Steve McQueen remains an icon of cool. His image continues to appear in advertising and pop culture, and car, motorcycle, and racing fans embrace him as one of their own. Now comes this volume featuring rare photography and chronicling McQueen's fascination with and passion for all things internal-combustion powered. McQueen's movie characters always had a great motorcycle or car--from the 650cc "BMW" motorcycle (a disguised Triumph) in "The Great Escape" (1963) to the Gulf Porsche 917 race car he raced in "Le Mans" (1971). His need for speed propelled him from Hollywood into a number of top off-road motorcycle races, including the Baja 1000, Mint 400, and Elsinore Grand Prix. Determined to be ahead of the pack, McQueen trained vigorously, weight lifting, running, and studying martial arts. "Steve McQueen A Passion for Speed "reflects a life lived in the moment and with the pedal to the metal.

Описание: This richly photographed volume is a celebration of what is, at once, an ancient symbol of shelter and harvest and, as well, a quintessential American architectural form. Widely revered yet steadily vanishing from our cultural landscape, the barn is an expression of pastoral romance, honest effort, painstaking craftsmanship, and tradition - a tradition that we are in danger of losing. Barn: Rescue and Adaptation, Revised and Expanded is a magnificent, abundantly illustrated volume that examines the remarkable story a true architectural icons. In this authoritative exploration, the authors, both practitioners of barn restoration and historic-barn moving, offer a tribute and guide to the many extant forms of American barn, following the evolution of the form from this country's earliest days, and, as well, tell the story of their efforts to restore, adapt, and repurpose these simple, soulful structures. Barns embody the ethos of another age and harken back to those days when the world moved more slowly, an ethos still to be found in these beautiful buildings - yet, due to the ravages of time, weather, and neglect these essential American edifices are threatened, as never before. This volume reminds us that barns are as much a part of us as our love of apple pie, and as such should be cherished for their artistry and cultural significance. This revised and expanded edition of Barn coincides with the premier of the PBS series Barnstruck and describes the process of barn preservation through relocation, focusing on the work of The New Jersey Barn Company, whose dedicated efforts over 35 years have saved more than 150 structures.
The long-departed Steve McQueen is still the coolest man on two wheels. Get an intimate look at his coolest bikes right here, right now, in McQueen's Motorcycles.
Even thirty years after his death, Steve McQueen remains a cultural icon. His image continues to appear in advertising and pop culture and his fan base spans from car lovers to racing enthusiasts to motorcycle obsessives.
In his movies, McQueen's character always had an envy-inducing motorcycle or car, but in his personal life, motorcycles were always McQueen's first true love. McQueen's Motorcycles focuses on the bikes that the King of Cool raced and collected.
From the first Harley McQueen bought when he was an acting student in New York to the Triumph "desert sleds" and Huskys he desert raced all over California, Mexico, and Nevada, McQueen was never without a stable of two wheelers.
His need for speed propelled him from Hollywood into a number of top off-road motorcycle races, including the Baja 1000, Mint 400, Elsinore Grand Prix, and even as a member of the 1964 ISDT team in Europe. Determined to be ahead of the pack, McQueen maintained his body like it was a machine itself. He trained vigorously, weight lifting, running, and studying martial arts. Later in his life, as he backed away from Hollywood, his interests turned to antique bikes and he accumulated an extensive collection, including Harley-Davidson, Indian, Triumph, Brough Superior, Cyclone, BSA, and Ace motorcycles.
Today, McQueen still has the Midas touch; anything that was in the man's possession is a hot commodity. McQueen's classic motorcycles sell for top dollar at auctions, always at a multiple of what the same bike is worth without the McQueen pedigree. McQueen's Motorcycles reveals these highly sought-after machines in gorgeous photography and full historical context.
