Rian Hughes : Soho Dives, Soho Divas published by Image Comics Designer, cartoonist and comic creator extraordinaire Rian Hughes has created a series of portraits of London’s burlesque performers, including sketches from life, graphic illustrations and paintings in a variety of media and styles. . Picked this up on a whim, this is the hardcover edition wrapped in red linen with art and gold text embossed on the outside cover. Really cool effect that’s better in hand.
there is one page in the book that has been the most memorable, not for the artwork itself, but the actual writing: i guess this book has become a collector’s item now since i don’t recall paying this much for the book. More info on Dave McKean H E R E.
