The Goude Touch: buy  from Amazon

The Goude Touch – Love this xxx

I have just started reading The Goude Touch and, wow, fabulous illustrations.

Really looking for tips on marketing and the use of illustration and this book is about the phenomenally successful ten-year collaboration between Goude and Galeries Lafayette:

Jean-Paul Goude is one of the worlds most brilliant and unorthodox imagemakers. This book assembles a collection of advertising artwork he created over a ten-year period for Galeries Lafayette, Pariss most celebrated department store. Around 150 works, including 75 working documents, are on show here: drawings, sketches and final images that sparkle with creative vigour. Selected and arranged by Goude himself, they present a gallery of artworks that have not only defined a brand, but have redefined advertising and brand photography as we know them. This book will inform and instruct all those concerned with the art of image-making, whether design professionals or simply those prepared to be delighted and entertained by chic, witty images that work.

Love it when the personal, style and learning all come together in one delicious hard-back package. don’t you agree?

      Me too, Alicia 😀 It seems we share an appreciation of fashion illustration – how brilliant! Are there others you love? I’ve just bought Fashion People by Gladys Perint Palmer whose work I just love … I have this Galliano illustration by her – sadly propped up on the floor not on the wall but I live in hope that it will hook up with a hammer soon!
