Reviews - What do customers think about Subversive Beauty?

Beautiful Book but Not for Intellectuals  Nov 10, 2007
I wasn't sure whether this book was meant to be read or ogled at (or both) but I chose to read it (after some ogling). One of the first things that comes to mind is that Luis Royo is a *MUCH* better artist than writer. I could barely understand what the mythical gibberish associated with some of the drawings were about. I might have enjoyed the writing in my younger days when I was "dreamier" but now, it's just annoying. Being a man however, I just can't say the same for the art. The drawings, mostly of women of unearthly beauty, are spellbinding. I'd much rather the book left their interpretations to the reader. Some of the pieces also include strange monsters that might scare young children but the monsters would probably be the lesser of two evils here. The book itself is printed on high quality paper but you could easily find ten times as many of Royo's artworks on the Net. I would not recommend this book to intellectuals because honestly, it lacks substance. However, if you are looking to diversify your book collection, this would make a nice, provocative addition to your library. At less than half an inch thick, it would probably fit in the space left on one of your full shelves. Don't expect to be taken seriously by your peers if you're caught "reading" it, though.
Tattoos?  Sep 16, 2007
If you love tattoos and piercings you'll love this book. Beautifully drawn women covered in tribal tattoos that become part of their skin. Piercings that are too cool to be real, no really, I don't think that some of those could be done. But, they look totally cool on paper.
Breath Taking  May 12, 2007
I never tire of looking at Royo's work. I go back again and again, and I always see something I had not seen before. I love this style of erotic fantasy art, and I feel that he inspires me on so many levels.
Stunning  Mar 31, 2007
I bought this book for my boyfriend, because he is a big fan of Royo. I knew the man made lovely art, but this book truly displayed how breathtaking and intricate his artwork was.
The book is a nice hardback, with nice matte, sturdy pages full of voluptuous, ethereal women. The quality of the art prints are vibrant, focused and intricate, plus there is a little story of the character provided with most pieces on a parallel page. The book is well comprised and layout!

It's all pretty big x by x wise, but not too thick. Nevertheless, it has a bit of substance, and worth more than what you pay. I was very satisfied and my boyfriend enjoys it.

Beauty indeed  Feb 12, 2007
Definitely one of Royo's best collections. The stories and comments with the artwork are exquisite as well! I would recommend this not only to Royo fans, but, also people who appreciate art.
6 out of 5!
