Synopsis:

Liberace Extravaganza! by award-winning costume designers Connie Furr Soloman and Jan Jewett is an opulent display of the renowned entertainer’s dazzling and over-the-top costumes.

No one would ever accuse Wladzlu Valentino Liberace of being demure. The internationally celebrated star is almost as well known for his eye-catching, flamboyant fashion as he is for his music.

Authorized by the Liberace Foundation, Liberace Extravaganza! features 150 full-color photographs of his unique garments, 20 original drawings from Liberace’s designers’ sketchbooks, behind-the-scenes stories from some of his most trusted couturiers and friends, and a foreword from Michael Travis, Liberace’s principle designer.

From the Back Cover:

Known for his spectacular performances, the magnificent Wladziu Valentino Liberace was a world-renowned star in the entertainment industry for more than four decades, and his dazzling, often outrageous costumes are what made him most memorable. In Liberace Extravaganza! the entertainer's sequined, bejeweled, and rhinestone-studded outfits, as well as his extravagant collection of furs, feather capes, sparkling bow ties, and custom-made shoes are exhibited in book form for the very first time.

These mesmerizing costumes grew from Liberace's humble beginnings when, as a young man, he would perform in his brother's hand-me-downs. From there, his suits, worth as much as twenty-four thousand dollars, featured layers of silk and satin ruffles, Swarovski crystal rhinestones, and fourteen-karat white-gold, diamond-encrusted buttons, culminating in his "electric" costumes with four thousand light bulbs weighing more than twenty-five pounds.

Michael Travis, Liberace's principal designer, has written the foreword for this breathtaking volume. Jim Lapidus, another of Liberace's designers, furrier Anna Nateece, and Ray Arnett, his producer, have contributed original sketches used to design Liberace's costumes. The result is a book that is one of a kind: a celebration of the legendary performer and a visual feast of the most extraordinary costumes ever created.

With more than 260 full-color photographs

Book Description Wladziu Valentino Liberace (1919-1987) war ein begnadeter Pianist, der durch seine extravaganten Bühnenshows in opulentem Outfit auf der ganzen Welt berühmt wurde. Als »Liberace« trug er Federkleid, üppige Fingerringe und manchmal »elektrische« Kostüme, die mit Tausenden von kleinen Glühbirnen behängt waren, so dass er leuchtete wie ein Wesen von einem anderen Stern. Die Autoren des vorliegenden Bandes selbst renommierte Kostümdesigner präsentieren die prachtvollen Kostüme und Accessoires aus dem Besitz des exzentrischen Meisters, der seine Homosexualität zeitlebens verleugnete und an AIDS starb. Interviews mit seinen Lieblings-Designern Jim Lapidus und Anna Nateece vervollständigen diesen glamourösen Band. (Text engl.) 21 x 29 cm, 224 S., zahlreiche farb. und s/w-Abb., geb.
