Visionaire 26: Fantasy (4549/6000)
James Gan, Dean and Kaliardos, Cecilia Dean
Visionaire Publishing, 1998
Fantasy is the subtext of every issue of Visionaire, but with 26 FANTASY they pushed the boundaries to the fantastical. A round box houses round, unbound artwork. Each of the cover elements – photographed by Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin – is produced exclusively for FANTASY: The dress was designed by Nicolas Ghesquiere for Balenciaga, Viktor & Rolf made the banner, and Jeremy Scott created the gold porcelain doll’s head and hands. It is the first time we published Tim Burton, Gregory Crewdson, and Marcus Piggott and Mert Alas. There is a special section curated by Isabella Blow featuring, among others, David LaChapelle, Mariko Mori, and Tim Noble and Sue Webster. Each issue includes an Hermes mask.
