  1. V. Vale

    Halloween in the famed Castro district of San Francisco is now just a faded memory since it was outlawed years ago after homophobic violence against innocent celebrants. But Ken Werner managed to capture the pre-AIDS riot and revelry of possibly the world’s greatest Halloween celebration anywhere on the planet. He published the book himself utilizing gorgeous duotones, sparing no expense using thick coated-stock paper and choosing a hardbound art book format. Distinctive and minimalist, this book nevertheless is a lavish production of over-the-top gorgeousness.
