This book, retailing at £25, is a story of Madonna’s career on the 30th anniversary of her Like A Virgin album* and is told in pictures, which should give you an idea of the market it is targeted at; that of the coffee table decoration.
While Madonna’s recent pictures for a magazine show a 50-year-old woman in full ‘mammorial’ splendour, this is a book for people (women) who see Madonna as an icon and inspiring figure.
Documented by New York music journalist Caroline Sullivan, this is the type of gift men should buy for their partners, but one that is unlikely to interest them too much… it’s not that TYPE of book. Good value at twenty-five quid though.
* A collection of songs, usually recorded around the same time that alluded to the record album cover that included the songs, fused onto a round piece of plastic known as a vinyl record
