Drawings by Karen Kilimnik

With overheated seductive power and sultry malicious glamour Karen Kilimnik introduces us to the rituals of her second-hand yearnings and her media worship, which she proceeds to dissect in an incomparable mixture of desperate innocence, post-adolescent ingenuity, and voodoo-like humor. “A world where supermodels converge with the super-rich—Kate Moss and Princess Di become one—and where the adult obsessions with wealth and beauty are offset by a childish preoccupation with pedigree dogs, thoroughbred horses and the Pink Panther.”

cm 27×37,5; pp. 142; COL; paperback. Publisher: Patrick Frey, Zürich, 1997.
