Amusing sidenote, though I haven't read it yet myself, I've talked to the translator of My Dear Bomb. He actually doesn't really like it and called Yohji a huge womanizer. laugh.gif

i read the pdf excerpt that's floating around here and i thought it was a bit vain and over-dramatic fluff. but apparently there's good stuff that's not contained in those 40 pages i skimmed

This is the best I could do. I don't know how to take pictures of books. I don't have a scanner. It's heavy. And big.

i think it turned out nicely like that

if you want to take pics for actual viewing/reading versus just display and exposition then you should already know, close the aperture down so you get better depth of focus along with a more top/down view

Yeah, I know. fistbump.gif

Everything is very close because of the shit lighting makes it impossible to take photos without shadows of myself/objects. It's a small and old place

Yeah it looks nice. stand on a chair to get an overall view, that's what I did for my stamp-sized book.

Kinda want the Margbook again after seeing those Mark Borthwick pics Fuuma posted in the other thread.

Thanks, I will do that for the next one. I am thinking of getting the Bless one for funsies. I'll post that up if I end up getting it.

As for the Margiela one I just wanted to show what was inside mostly, in case people were wondering. It's mostly all photographs, but there are some cool things like screen caps of playlists and stuff. Inside are 'mini-booklets' as well, articles/essays in languages I don't know. Pretty cool.

is that the same one SQ has or the older one ? or was there only one and I've imagined things again
post #39 of 137
I'm not sure, it's the one you posted. You can buy it from the Wal-Mart website!

Let's talk binding quality, paper grammage and roughness coefficient of the page curl.



There's also a book from the exhibition

Do you guys buy these things new or scout them out used? I guess I'm talking art books in general, not just fashion.  They tend to be pretty pricey but I swing by the library sometimes to look at stuff.

Is it taken, at least in part, from artbook/book suggestions I posted on SZ? I seem to remember having done that, or maybe a lot of the non-fashion we like is similar.

i think you're right because they were all in my amazon cart and i remember scanning that thread some while back.

will add © Bogdanovich to posts

My buddy installed this show, it's a pretty interesting presentation.

I will add photos/scans of The New English Dandy this weekend. I will try to find a copy of Kid's Wear to scan but I believe all of mine are in storage somewhere right now.

Also, wanted to add Nick Cave - Meet Me At The Center Of The Earth as a must own (if you can find an affordable copy) book. It's not "fashion", but this guy makes some of the most incredible wearable sculptures out of fabric/fibers.

Also just finished reading through Japan Fashion Now. Was alright as a light read and quick history of Japanese fashion. Not too much interesting detail though and the bits about the various fashion subcultures (gyaru, lolita, etc) felt mostly like fluff.
