About this Item

np, 130 color illustrations. Text in French. From the faux gold leaf endpapers to the die-cut frontispiece and vellum overlays, this lushly produced monograph on everyone's favorite Gallic duo is as over the top as their campy, glamorous photographs. See Boy George, Eva Ionesco, Marc Almond, Arielle Dombasle, Jean Paul Gaultier, Nina Hagen, Paloma Picasso, Andree Putman, and even Saints Pierre et Gilles themselves as idealized, ethereal creatures not quite of this world. A most handsome example in the publisher's printed acetate overlay, as issued. PLEASE NOTE: Additional shipping costs are required for this item beyond our standard rates due to its value - we will inform you of the applicable amount at time of purchase.
