Celebrates one of the world’s most brilliant and unorthodox image-makers and one of advertising’s most sought-after stars


Jean-Paul Goude is one of the world's most brilliant and unorthodox image-makers. Here is the biggest collection of his work ever seen (and many are seen here for the first time): sketches, paintings, storyboards, elaborately staged photography, and documentation for stage and street shows.

From his days with Esquire magazine in New York to his most recent work for Galeries Lafayette, Paris’s best-known department store, Goude has surprised, provoked and delighted those who have encountered his work. He was Grace Jones’s Pygmalion, creating unforgettable images of her, from androgyne to cybersuper-woman to supreme diva. One of advertising's most sought-after stars, Goude has masterminded campaigns for Chanel, Perrier and Kodak, among others.

Hundreds of images, including many working documents, are on show here: from inspired doodles to final images that sparkle with creative vigour. Selected and arranged by Goude himself, they present a gallery of artworks that have redefined advertising, fashion and brand photography as we know them.

This book is a celebration of Goude’s creative zest and perfectionism. It will inform and intrigue all those concerned about the art of image-making, whether design professionals or simply those prepared to be delighted and entertained by chic, witty images that work.
