Jean-Paul Goude is one of the world’s most brilliant and unorthodox imagemakers. This book assembles a collection of advertising artwork he created over a ten-year period for Galeries Lafayette, Paris’s most celebrated department store. Around 150 works, including 75 working documents, are on show here: drawings, sketches and final images that sparkle with creative vigour. Selected and arranged by Goude himself, they present a gallery of artworks that have not only defined a brand, but have redefined advertising and brand photography as we know them. This book will inform and instruct all those concerned with the art of image-making, whether design professionals or simply those prepared to be delighted and entertained by chic, witty images that work.
An ideal introduction to the artist and the best of his work...highly recommended
