Vezzoli is fascinated by celebrity and the culture that surrounds it, questioning the lustre of Hollywood and iconic identity. Alongside film and performance, in which his collaborators have included Gore Vidal, Kate Blanchett, Natalie Portman, Roman Polanski, Bernard-Henri Lévy and many others, his practice includes needlepoint, embellishing film stills and glossy photographs with brightly coloured petit-point stitching. Black-and-white stills of Judy Garland are here embroidered with red metallic tears.

This is the artist's first book, first published as a limited edition on the occasion of
a dinner held by Robert Violette at the Tigerpalast Restaurant, Frankfurt, during the 2001 Frankfurt Book Fair.
