Due date: Forthcoming. Publisher's description: Francois Berthoud is one of the most original fashion illustrators of the late 20th and early 21st century. More than drawing illustrations with pen or pencil, Berthoud likes to sculpt, scrape, scratch, and dig them out of different materials (wood, linoleum, pressed paper, celluloid film). Like a woodcut-maker or a goldsmith, he creates matrixes in which he then transfers the figures he has sketched on paper, reducing them to the essential. Hailed by avant-garde designers for his elegant sense of detachment and a sharp sense of irony, Berthoud ennobles things that seem marginal (a glove, a scarf, a high heel, the tip of a boot) by turning them into archetypes. Informed by a visual culture rooted in conceptual art, he produces images of the female form that possess an exacting precision and are imbued with latent eroticism.
