Those expecting an exhaustive tomb of runway snapshots should look elsewhere. Indeed, even if such a book did exist, it would certainly do nothing to elucidate the significance of Margiela's contribution to fashion.
What this book does so well is to provide an entre to the designer's world, from inspiration, to creation, down to the very stitch and seam of his clothing. One is instantaneously struck by the simplicity and humility of his designs (a tank top made from a mesh laundry bag, boots with cloven hoofs), and yet is left more awed by not having noticed the world in this way before.
My only reservation in not giving this volume the highest marks is for the fact that many of the typography is extremely difficult to read. The white-colored text is printed directly on the photographs, which inevitably will lead to problems when the background color matches or closely matches the over-laid text.

From the "Rizzoli" website introducing the book and detailing. " In the spirit of Margiela's garments, the book is a work of art in itself, designed exclusively by Margiela and complete with silver inks, ribbon markers, a variety of lush paper types, twelve booklets, and an embroidered white-linen cover. This book provides a window onto the intimate, handmade world of a unique designer." I did not get the white linen cover and or the book with any ribbon markers. Was a bit disappointed, it may be petty but just a big fan and love every nuance I can get from his Maison.

This book is truly a masterpieces for anyone interested in fashion, avantgarde design and art. It shows the story and most relevant works of Martin Margiela and his team and the evolution the brand made. I really recommend this book to anyone who'd like to be "kidnapped" by the beauty of its pages and also those who have heard of Maison Martin Margiela but never had the chance to dig in and discover more. That's a real treasure.

MMM has been under intense scrutiny for the past few seasons due to the exit of their innovative torch carrier Margiela himself. So in a way I felt this book was a bit of an epitaph archiving the last 20 years of the brand. True to MMM style, it's abstract and beautiful (i may just need another copy to have several of the images framed.) It's complete sensory overload. I've been waiting months to receive this book, so I'm not sure if it could have ever lived up to my ridiculous expectations. I for one, find this kind of design as pure fashion escapism. That being said it's wonderful in size and content. The book is a bit traditional as far as modern printing techniques are concerned and I was secretly hoping the design would have been a bit more Margielian. Not that this book needed any additional trickery, the imagery is quite cerebral, sure to take you on an extremely intimate fashion odyssey. A must have for any devotee of the brand and sure to bring endless inspiration from your wardrobe to a global perspective on the very basic ideals of fashion. VIVA LA MARGIELA!
