Format: Hardcover
The Model as Muse is simply a must-have encyclopedia couture. Whether you are from the generation of Baby Boomers, the Generation X or the Millennials... this book will provide you with an in-depth overview of the past, the present and interesting theories and perspectives for you to form your own views of the fashion and the design world.

THIS BOOK IS EXCELLENT!

Fashionable as it may sound... The Model as Muse certainly captures everything you need to know about the models and the world of fashion. Yohannan certainly proved to us as being the pioneer in hybrid fashion and intellectual analysis with this fantastic docu-literary of everything from photographers and their photographs, models and their lives, designers and their creations, and a surprisingly, a fresh, yet intellectual and contemporary analysis of what you need to know to speak intelligently about this industry.

If you are an outsider and you see the fashion industry as shallow then you must read this book! If you are an insider and if you think you know it all, then you must read every pages of this book as it will share with you the intricate details of the foundation of fashion 101. The writing is superb and very Vogue, styled with a hint of academia.

It is an excellent Muse for all of us who constantly seek everyday inspiration.

PS: It is also a great gift for any Lindsay Lohan fans who love the Devil Wears Prada and listen to Madonna and read Vogue... and think that is all to know to speak intelligently about fashion. Be-Muse yourself with this book and you will actually learn something!

I have this book on my coffee table and it just stands out. I love Kate Moss, and I was so happy to see so much on her in this book. There are many other beautiful models in this one. There are some nude images but it's still amazing. haha. It's definitely worth the price :)
