This small, adorable book has about a 16 page mini-bio about Marc Jacobs. It takes you through his good times as well as rough. From his time at Perry Ellis to launching MARC JACOBS. And as you start the book great personal candids are showcased. As well as behind-the-scenes shots of his shows, to photographs of his earlier work. A lot of candids of famous friends such as Kate Moss, Sofia Coppola, Zoe Cassavetes, and his partnership with Robert Duffy. Although I would have loved his collection of great Ad Campaigns which I love seeing it's something great to add to your personal library. And if you're like me and can't afford his faboulous clothes you can certainly afford this book and show it off to all your friends.
A Great buy for anyone who loves fashion and anyone who loves Marc Jacobs.

A disappointing, fluffy book that fails to go into any kind of depth about the designer. On a surface, introductory level it is sufficient. But Jacobs has far more to him than what this book offers. I'll hold my breath and wait until something with greater coverage and depth comes out about this brilliant designer.
not enough information2006/3/14
Though it is a cute book, not nearly enough information about the designer. Marc Jacobs has been around for many years and this book does not cover most of his work and I was very disappointed.
Another great book from Assouline. An interesting read about the rise of the genius that is Marc Jacobs. What he has done for the Louis Vuitton brand is astounding, his creative talents and fresh ideas are so inspirational, no wonder he has made an even greater name for himself, this guy is talent, talent, talent to the end. Buy this it is truly great.
