Book Review: The Beautiful: Illustrations for Fashion and Style

The Beautiful: Illustrations for Fashion and Style

Most fashion design books to me are abstract, at least those that I've seen.

I wasn't expecting much from this book until I flipped to the first page. And I was blown away. Wow. The illustrations are stunningly beautiful. I found myself turning the pages really slowly, admiring the artwork presented.

Most of the work featured are traditional or created to look that way. They have a very nice textural feel to them. There are a lot of beautiful ink washes, line art and lots of other styles. 100 artists are featured in this 224-page paperback. The illustrations are rendered at great detail and printed huge on non-glossy art paper.

They should have released a hardcover edition for this but I won't say the paperback construction is bad -- it is very good.

I highly recommended this book to fashion and lifestyle art lovers, or anyone who loves good art.

The Beautiful is truly beautiful.
