Another Portrait Book.
Edited by Jefferson Hack.
272 pp., Illustrated throughout, 9x11¾".
At the vanguard of fashion, design and art, Another Magazine has, over the
past decade, become known for its signature fusion of fashion photography
and classic portraiture: a sultry Uma Thurman, for instance, half of her
face covered with a delicate butterfly mask, or Christina Ricci defiantly taking
a pair of scissors to her own ponytail. Published bi-annually, each cover
is instantly iconic, featuring portraits of cultural figures as they’ve never
been seen before. Another Portrait Book includes a stellar selection of
these celebrity shots—Nicole Kidman, Jodie Foster, Jude Law and Gwyneth
Paltrow among them, as well as portraits of figures from the worlds of
music, literature and art, such as Gore Vidal, Björk, Lucian Freud, Patti
Smith, Marianne Faithful and Kate Moss, captured by the world’s most
iconoclastic photographers. Another Portrait Book is the second of a threevolume
set published by the popular periodical. Following Another Fashion
Book, this edition will in turn be followed by Another Art Book, to be
released in the spring of 2010. This Another Books series is edited by
Jefferson Hack, co-founder of the Dazed Group, which publishes Dazed &
Confused, Another Magazine and Another Man.
