Due to popular demand, Booth-Clibborn Editions is reprinting, (un)fashion, Tibor Kalman's book on antifashion. From cardboard shoes in Africa to orange roller-skates in the United States, from Zulu dancers in South Africa to an Indian Elvis, (un)fashion scans the globe to show how real people dress: at work, on the street or for ceremonial occasions. With virtually no text, (un)fashion pokes gentle fun at the elitism of the fashion world, presenting its provocative observations through dynamic images by some of the world's foremost photo-journalists. Tibor Kalman (1949-1999) was one of the world's greatest graphic designers and a social activist. He was editor of Benetton's Colours magazine. Maira Kalman is the author/illustrator of numerous children's books.
