"I hope that watching his work over 13 years, condensed in this book [readers will be] shocked or overwhelmed by so much beauty," said Deniau. "I hope this book leaves people speechless about Lee - since words are insufficient for this man that I loved. I hope readers will fully realize how much Lee gave and how far he went, at his own risk."

"In the 1920s, Sydney's police began quietly assembling a gallery of the city's most light-fingered, fleet-footed, silver-tongued rogues, con artists, gunmen, drug dealers and hooligans. These extraordinary images were resurfaced in the 1980s, long after the original paperwork had been lost and the crooks, the cops and all who remembered them, had passed on. Crooks Like Us opens a secret door onto Sydney's hidden histories."
This spectacular book immerses its reader into a world of astonishing costume and set design that has inspired and will continue to inspire some of the greatest artists in the world.
"Sergei Diaghilev, impresario from 1909 until his death in 1929, fused the most avant-garde, groundbreaking movements in dance, choreography, art, design and costume into unique and stunning productions... Fashion and decor designers and visual artists in particular - including Coco Chanel, Natalia Goncharova, Mikhail Larionov, Leon Bakst, and Pablo Picasso - found inspiration in the Ballets Russes. Designers and artists moved past old boundaries and created costumes and set designs for these extravagant productions, bridging the gaps between tangible and abstract artistic genres."
