It’s Modern

This visually rich volume presents, for the first time side by side, the commercial work and artwork of Alexander Liberman. Liberman was not only one of the world’s most influential art directors, but was also a respected photographer, artist, and graphic designer in his own right. His personal exploration and relationships through these mediums shaped his own artistic vision that, in turn, helped lay the foundation for his creative work with publications including Vogue and Vanity Fair. It is fair to say that his personal eye transformed contemporary culture and the relationship between the fashion and art worlds. It’s Modern! is an exciting and vibrant volume that pairs Liberman’s important magazine and professional efforts with his personal artwork and design. The juxtaposition of these two perspectives combined with personal archival photographs alongside texts, artworks, and photographs by iconic friends and collaborators build a complete portrait of a genius whose personal life and inspirations were as fascinating as his artwork. Friends and colleagues whose works appear within the pages include Matisse, Beaton, Leibovitz, Penn, Picasso, Horst, Avedon, and Penn. This vibrant and engaging book is truly a must for all who proclaim themselves a lover of fashion, art, magazines, graphic design, or photography.
