“Not since Madonna’s metal sheathed collection of poon shots have I been so eager to proudly display my infallible taste in art and all that is glamourous”.
All I Want For Christmas Is….not Mariah Carey (though to be fair, that is still a pretty bangin tune). All I want for Christmas is Christopher Logan’s latest coffee table book. I’ve just had a quick peek and at the risk of sounding all 2011 about it. IT”S AMAZEBALLS.
JEFFREE STAR BY AUSTIN YOUNG
Released by Tectum Publishers, dr.a.g is a coffee table tome of the sexiest variety. Not since Madonna’s metal sheathed collection of poon shots have I been so eager to proudly display my infallible taste in art and all that is glamourous.
Working with some of the world’s best drag artists and a series of incredible photographers, Logan has created something remarkable. A classy homage to LGBT iconography. They’re all there, Marilyn, Marlene, Barbara, Bette and Liza all smoulder and emote from the pages.
The models are all leaders in their field, and even for a smalltown boy in Scotland, instantly recognisable. Joey Arias, Lady Bunny and of course (it is 2012 after all); much of the cast of RuPaul’s Drag Race feature, though for me the highlight definitely has to be Jimmy James’s recreation of some of Monroes most enduring images. The book concludes with some exclusive shots from the incomparable legend that is Mr Jim Bailey.
