Not too long ago, I saw an image of this book on jjjjound and wanted to know what it was. By some magic, it appeared on my doorstep this week. Ballets Russes is a beautiful documentation of the Russian ballets that took place in Paris that moved ballet into the high fashion world. I love the drawing section! It’s a hardcover with nearly 350 pages so I’m sure the shipping wasn’t cheap – Huge thank you to Anton for your mystical mind-reading abilities and everyone else at, Frankenstein. You can purchase the book here.
The inaugural issue of The New Order magically arrived at my doorstep, and it is an impressive debut. It is a quarterly art and fashion publication from the folks behind Slamxhype, and the highlight for me is the A2 sized fold-out Conor Harrington poster (and interview)! It is only a matter of time before this guy is everywhere. Other interviews include: Herbert Baglione, José Parla, Geoff McFetridge, and Mark Gonzales.
Ian Cox just just emailed to say he was the one who took the photo that was used for this poster, here’s his Flickr.
