First edition

The Helmut Lang Purple Book (published in conjunction with Purple Fashion 7th issue) is an art-project book containing manipulated, digitized, scribbled-upon, blurred and superimposed letters, notes, postcards and assorted warm-and-fuzzy messages from friends dating back to 1986, the year he started showing in Paris. They are intimate exchanges—or excerpts, as they're called—between Lang and long-time allies Juergen Teller, Louise Bourgeois, Jenny Holzer, Bruce Weber and Carine Roitfeld, among others.
