Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty

Lenticular book jacket for Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty, published by Yale University Press in association with The Metropolitan Museum of Art

Lenticular is also the technical term for the stunning image on the cover of The Metropolitan Museum of Art’s catalog, Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty. The lenticular print shifts from a portrait of McQueen to a silver skull, like those that feature so prominently among his motifs. Like the exhibition it accompanies, the book is a gorgeous production, celebrating the singular artistry of the great British fashion designer and presenting his work in a captivating format.
