Rian Hughes (Yesterday's Tomorrows, Tales From Beyond Science) has created a unique series of portraits of London's underworld burlesque artists. Collected here are stylish and erotic sketches from life, bold graphic illustrations, and beautiful paintings in an eclectic variety of media and styles.
"One of the most successful and prolific designer/illustrators of the past 20 years" --Roger Sabin, Eye magazine.
Rian Hughes is a graphic designer, illustrator, comic artist, author, and typographer.

A retrospective monograph, "Art, Commercial" was published in 2001. Recent books include "Cult-ure: Ideas can be Dangerous", "Lifestyle Illustration of the 60s", and his book of burlesque art, "Soho Dives, Soho Divas". His comic strips have been collected in "Yesterdays Tomorrows", which was launched at the ICA, London. He has an extensive collection of Thunderbirds memorabilia, a fridge full of vodka, and a stack of easy listening albums which he plays very quietly.
