Book summary

"T is for Toreador, Toga, Tattoo...".

With irrelevant wit, a sharp eye, and a brilliant palette of colors, Ruben Toledo both celebrates and skewers fashion trends. His playful illustrated alphabet will tickle not only beauty-business insiders but anyone who has ever marveled at the variety of personal statements visible in any sidewalk promenade. With pen and brush, Toledo captures the range of possible looks, whether attractive or absurd, from the everyday sight of teenager's thrift-shop chic to the purely surreal -- for example, his rendering of evening gowns built of brick, stone, or wood. Wrapped in a bright pink, transparent, reusable bag, this oversize book is graced with two smaller-format, glossy "booklets" inserted strategically int the alphabet, and expanded with a portfolio of the artist's best work for American and international fashion magazines.
