The first book on the late designer Alexander McQueen is set to hit bookshelves in July, the Telegraph UK reports. Entitled "Alexander McQueen, Genius of a Generation," and written by fashion journalist Kristin Knox, the 128-page work chronicles McQueen's life beginning with his childhood in London.
The book contains more than 120 images that, according to Hilary Alexander, "demonstrate how McQueen's vision eclipsed mere ready-to-wear and how he struggled and sought to define fashion through complex thought-processes, science and computer technology, special effects and elaborate sets which were astonishing examples of installation art, designed to showcase some of the most bizarrely-beautiful, ingenious and mind-boggling clothes ever seen on a runway."
