This charming book is a sketch in time, a facsimile diary that cursively loops Le-Tan’s selected ensemble of the “Pop” Generation elite between black-and-white portraits and illustrations and reflections. Lines delicately trace the outlines of icons like Karl Lagerfeld, Matthieu Saint Laurent, Gary Gilles, Andy Warhol, and more; as well as their bedrooms, their furniture, their eye for things and shapes and interactions that constituted the “Pop” movement scene. The light-lined volume is a brief outline of a period in art, fashion and cultural history, and draws on its specificity and narrow focus on a few key figures to recapture the intimacy of a collaborative, competitive, and influential age.
