Editorial Reviews

Review

"This book brings together an incredible number of his works from his career, including drawings, illustrations, paintings, photographs and mixed-media journals, showcasing iconic imagery and never-before-seen Instamatic and Polaroid photos, letters, and other ephemera---forming a complete portrait of a man who redefined fashion imagery for the second half of the 20th century and beyond." ~Metrosource.com

Antonio takes a look at the wild life and times of iconic ‘80s illustrator Antonio Lopez..” ~Elle Magazine
 
“…one of fashion’s greatest all-time artists and illustrators, is being honored with a gorgeous new book documenting his remarkable work from the ‘60s to the ‘80s…” ~Sportswear International

"...the book is prodigious in its coverage of the body of work created by Mr. Lopez during his career. This book is a veritable “fairy tale:” a biography of the artist and the circle of people surrounding him at various stages in his life. If you have an interest in any of the following: the art of fashion, the halcyon days of New York City and Paris, fashion illustration, or fine art there can be no greater gift than this paean to Mr. Lopez." ~Jeffrey Felner, New York Journal of Books

"...a fascinating romp through the artist’s life and times, discoveries and obsessions, friends and fame." ~Artinfo.com

"The aim of his books...is to introduce Lopez to a new generation. Most of the cashe has never been seen before; all of it looks just as cool and commanding as it did in its day." ~W Magazine

"...a loving and lavish tribute to the Puerto Rican-born artist." ~Fashioninformer.com

"Antonio Lopez was the most renowned fashion illustrator of the 1970s and '80s. Antonio Lopez: Fashion, Art, Sex, and Disco collects some of his finest work, along with many of the photographs he made and worked from." ~Bloomberg News

"A new book pays homage to a fashion illustrator who redrew history. Antonio Lopez...elevating fashion illustration to an art form and, along the way, becoming a major influence on the photography, advertising, and couture worlds. [Antonio Lopez] a career-spanning volume that features not only Lopez's drawings, but also paintings, letters, and never-before-seen photography." ~Out

A big beautiful book by one of my favorite artists. I thought he had been forgotten; this book keeps his memory and his art very much alive! He was one of the great illustrators.

Such a marvelous selection of Antonio's work went into this amazingly stunning book. It does not disappoint at all; with every turn of every page one gets more and more enveloped by a world that Antonio had created and with this book one can revisit that world and Antonio's heyday to it's full glory. A definite must buy for everyone and anyone who dares to love fashion, art, sex, and disco.

I knew Antonio back in the day, and it was great to see his work collected and presented so beautifully, and in the context of the times, and of Antonio's personal life. He took something that everyone else did in a straightforward way: the illustration of clothes, and raised it to a high level of artistry. Imaginative, daring, beautiful, quintessentially of an era, and yet timeless.
