When I went to the Alexander McQueen 'Savage Beauty' exhibition (twice!) in NYC last year, I desperately wanted to buy the accompanying book, but lacked (a) the funds; and (b) the luggage space required (it's heavy!). I did buy the poster though, which I've framed and hung in my bedroom - it's the first thing I look at when I wake up of a morning and I love it.
Today I walked past my local bookstore and sitting in the window was the book... the very last copy they had.
So it's come home with me. I'm considering it my early, early birthday present to myself.
