-- "Louboutin's book will have you craving for another scarlet-soled pair in no time." ~Plastik
"A stunning volume, it features a 5-piece fold-out cover, a binding of pink faux-leather, a magical interior pop-up, as well as gilded pages. With five chapters—A Life; The Shoes; Fetish; The Places; and Twenty Years—this elegant monograph reveals the artistry and theatricality of Louboutin’s shoe designs, from his iconic stilettos to his fetishistic pieces and everything in between." ~FashionWindows.net

Top customer reviews
There are plenty of full-page photographs, and the pop-up in the cover is cute and unexpected. The book is bound in a nice, high-quality artificial leather, so it's also eco- and animal-friendly. I use it as a coffee table book, but people with children might prefer to keep it hidden because of the fetish section. In my opinion, everything in this book is done tastefully and artfully, but I tend be a bit liberal about these things, so others may not want to leave it out in the open.
All in all, I'm glad I finally bought this book. It's the best on the market in terms of pictures and shoe-focused content, and it's very well made--definitely worth the price. If you love shoes, but aren't particularly fond of Christian Louboutin, I would still recommend it.
