Review: Burlesque and the Art of the Teese/Fetish and the Art of the Teese

Dear Constant Reader,

This is the last book on the burlesque shelf!

Burlesque and the Art of the Teese/Fetish and the Art of the Teese by Dita Von Teese (2006).

This is two books in one. When you finish reading about burlesque according to Dita, flip the book upside down and read about fetish according to Dita!

Most of the text is Dita on how fabulous it is to be Dita. She tells of her transformation from a shy and dowdy girl to a glamourous burlesque star. You have to admire her dedication and marketing. There’s also a light history of burlesque, some interesting tidbits and trivia in sidebars, and a makeup guide by decade. There are other, better books on those subjects, but you didn’t buy this book to learn about burlesque history. You want to look at photos of Dita and be seduced by the fantasy of her life. And the photographs are gorgeous.

This will be my last book review for a while, until I get some more burlesque books!
