Form and fashion through French eyes.
Below are five more pieces from the genius Alain Gourdan, aka Aslan, whose women had exaggerated curves and a pretty sharp fashion sense. In addition to bookcovers, Aslan did a long running series of pin-ups for the French nudie magazine Oui that allowed him to dispense with clothing altogether. We’ve collected quite a few of those and will get some posted later. In the meantime, see other Aslan bookcovers here and here.
