Bi-annual ‘AnOther’ magazine is an essential purchase every fashion season. Here is a truly stunning series of books, edited by Jefferson Hack, which collectively represent the best aspects of the magazine. AnOther Fashion and AnOther Portrait books are already available to buy, but this October Steidl will release AnOther Art book along with a special slipcase of all three books.
AnOther has always presented innovative and ambitious spreads, blurring the boundaries between fashion and art. I thought my favourite would be the Fashion book, but the gorgeous studies in the Portrait book are almost mesmerising. Although, I wouldn’t have one without the other – both are amazing coffee table books and great talking points. The Art book (which I will certainly be adding to my collection) presents some of the brilliant collaborations the magazine has undertaken with some of the biggest names in modern art, including Damien Hurst and Jake & Dinos Chapman. In the early days of AnOther magazine, the first ten pages were filled with images of these collaborations, instead of the usual bombarding of adverts.
Here is a selection of just a few of my favourite images from the Fashion and Portrait books. Photographers include Craig McDean, Nick Knight and Terry Richardson amongst many others. Models include Kate Moss, Julianne Moore and Tilda Swinton…
