MMM x Cream
I got this Martin Margiela Cream publication last December along with the other Margiela book I posted in one of the first foxyman posts. My boyfriend thought I was crazy to pay $70 (aud) for a sealed publication, and when I decided to open it at lunch later that day I almost had a freakin' heart attack discovering that the first 200 pages or so were completely blank. As a natural reaction, I then skipped to the last pages and found that they too, were blank. Now I don't know if this was a 'trick' to make the reader think they've bought a blank publication or a practical function to make this fucker extremely difficult to scan or photograph and reproduce - either way, both were achieved.
I don't know what it is about MMM but seriously, it is the only design house that could put their name and work to a sealed collaborative publication and I will buy it without a second thought. Put it this way: if someone offered me one band to listen to for the rest of my life, I'd probably tell them to fuck off (unless of course, teleporting me back to the 70s to be at every live Zeppelin gig [and an affair with Jimmy and Plant- can't choose] was part of the offer) but offer me one designer to wear for the rest of my life, and the answer is quite clear:
