Karl Lagerfeld, vision of a funeral
Unauthorized illustrated tale
With this new illustrated tale, "Karl Lagerfeld, vision of a funeral" the author and artist aleXsandro Palombo has carried out a small illustrated work of art by cunjuring up and portraying for us the greatest funeral which the world of fashion will witness. His ingenius and quick-witted trait, like in a powerful instant photo, leads us through a visionary sequence always poised between dreams and the surreal.
"My panels are like a performance and not a copy of real life. Every character wears a creation of mine, my personal vision of style" - aleXsandro Palombo.
A special edition by Humor Chic, entirely handmade using the bibliophiles' ancient technique, golden stedded cover, luxury binding and published in limited copies, an ancient art which helps to confir the work an eternal status thanks to the hands of skillful artisans.
A journey in that crazy world presented by aleXsandro Palombo.
Enjoy the show!
