Great book for any true fan of Lee McQueen. Not a biography, and not recommended for those who wish to learn about McQueen's life. There is a lengthy introduction by the author on her history and relationship with McQueen, as well as her response to life after his death, and there are a few quotes by Lee and by other's about Lee sporadically strewn about the book, but for the most part it is a giant photo album. There are a few portraits of McQueen, and a couple of his workroom, but the vast majority are from backstage during runway. Of models, gowns, Lee working, the set pre- and post-show, etc. They are split up by show, and there is also a section of his work at Givenchy. It gives a rare, backstage glance at the magic of his shows. The book is huge (and I mean huge), but I still found myself wanting more. That is my only complaint about this book, is that I wanted more pictures. However, I think I would have that response no matter how many pictures there are, so it is really a mute point. Overall, great coffee table book for any McQueen, or fashion in general, fan!

What a shock to discover this book made by an artist about an artist.

The photographs embody, as I read somewhere on the net, a rare tribute of the highest caliber, "Hi-octane glamour of the Brodovitch/Penn/Vreeland Caliber".

I cannot stop coming back on each and every photograph, filled with visions, love and respect, rarely photography about fashion has reached such a climax.

This book is as warm and faithful to the late designer as the Metropolitan Museum book was cold and distant. Life vs. death, maybe because the Met book was published so soon after the designer's death, it is just a honest documentary book without artistic or human dimension.

"Love looks not with the eyes" will overwhelm each photographic art lover and each Alexander McQueen's admirer. A reference book that is here to stay.

This book is beautiful. Yes, because of the gorgeous clothes, but also for the behind the scenes moments captured that will never occur again. This book reminded me of how powerful a photograph can be. Capturing a split second in the life of a true genius, Lee Alexander McQueen. A must have for any fashion, photo, art, or anything beautiful lover.

My grandson is only 13 yrs. old, yet is interested in all types of art and is, at present, beginning to experiment with fashion design. I gave him an Alex. McQueen book for Christmas & this one for his birthday. He is ecstatic! McQueen is , in my opinion, in a class by himself.

This is without question the best deal I've ever gotten on amazon. I think I paid $11.75 WITH shipping included for this book with a listed cover price of $75... And it's WORTH the $75!!! As a fashion photographer who has shot for designers , models and runways, seeing this intimate behind the scenes window into the world of the legendary and iconic Alexander McQueen is an almost priceless access. The portraits, the models, the detail close ups and blurred chaos of motion, every page offers something new and exciting in this HUGE coffee table masterpiece. It's on my coffee table between books of Miles Aldridge and Kate Moss and fits perfectly as a new mainstay.

the photography is just incredible! I really love that this book is more about the backstage and making in process moments of the McQueen world, is just so inspirational to look at and brings powerful emotions to you.
