Picturing Prince: An Intimate Portrait by Steve Parke

My rating: 5 of 5 stars (This small picture does not do this book justice!)

This review is from: Picturing Prince: An Intimate Portrait (Hardcover)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme.

I’m reviewing Picturing Prince: An Intimate Portrait by Steve Parke. Forward by Sheila E. Here are my thoughts:

^^ This is a stunning look at the seminal artist through the eyes of his former art director, Steve Parke, which includes lovely insights to Prince’s life via written vignettes and gorgeous photographs.

^^ Fans of Prince (or perhaps those just curious) will love this book, I’m sure. It’s a beautifully designed hardback book.

^^ The stunning front cover has silver writing on a purple background with a colourful picture of Prince above.

^^ The back cover is equally as beautiful, with a black and white Prince photo, and purple theme.

^^ Inside the pictures are amazing. Colourful. Sexy. Intriguing. The photo’s are really well taken, behind-the-scenes peeks, which include rare and long forgotten shots. Plus some are even never seen before images.

^^ For book sniffers, this smells yummy and will make your mouth water! If you are one, you’ll understand.
Overall: I am very pleased with this beautifully designed coffee table book, which will make an ideal gift for any Prince fan. It’s a collector’s dream.

  1. Is that Rice Krispies, because it’s giving me a mighty craving. I don’t typically keep coffee table books around, but if I did, I might be intrigued enough to get this one. I’m also really intrigued by said smell. As a devoted book sniffer, I appreciate a good smelling book.

    1. haha! Yes, Rice Krispies. I love ’em! Glad I’m not the only book smeller around lol
