Book Giveaway: Artist/Rebel/Dandy: Men of Fashion
From the museum exhibition titled Artist/Rebel/Dandy: Men of Fashion at the Rhode Island School of Design comes Artist/Rebel/Dandy: Men of Fashion (Yale University Press, 2013) in book form for those who didn't make it to the exhibit. The book emphasizes the personalities of the well-known fashionable men of the past and present. When the term "dandy" was first used in London in 1813, it was considered to be someone who is flamboyant, superficial, and self-indulgent, but in the book, a dandy is shown as one who has profound thought and imagination in his self-presentation. He creates an image that challenges the norm of society.
The book is filled with identity, creativity, and self-presentation. Take a look at all the artistic characteristics of dandies from around the world. Over a century of dandies are presented showing their fashion, style, the way they dress, the patterns, colors, and many more interesting details of a dandy!
