The Fourth Sex

INSTAGRAM'S FAVOURITE BOOK. THE FOURTH
SEXTHREE HUNDRED AND FIFTY NINE IMAGES OF ADOLESCENT EXTREMES. AN ENDLESS SOURCE OF LIKES FOR THE SHARED LOVES OF THE DESPERATE AND DESPERATELY COOL. HOW
CAN ANYTHING EVER FEEL
THIS REAL AGAIN?


The Raf Simons / Willy Vanderperre / Peter Philips / Mickey Mouse cover. Already legend. Already some kind of subverted childhood / zoom forward Kubrick Clockwork Orange thing going on. Other great books stop here. At the start.  
 

Andrew Robertson and Charlotte Gainsbourg from The Cement Garden. Archetypal teen angst and double white washed out t-shirt ad extraordinaire.
 

This great picture. There are so many. But even so some just instantly airdrop into the long term memory. This Ed Templeton photo will be world class forever. 
 

No space between them. Films and books. Films run throughout the book - teens on screen now teens on screens. The watching and rewatching and the imitating. A partial list; Christiane F, The Cement Garden, Kids, Akira, La Haine, American History X, My Own Private Idaho, Welcome To The Dollhouse, The Virgin Suicides, The Ice Storm and... 
 

Heathers. Of course Heathers and of course Winona. Skip to the button at the bottom if you just want to buy the book now.  
 

One more Charlotte. Juergen Teller's fashion shoot with Venetia Scott for Libération Style is really really very great. Not the most considered critical review - just true. More of the book on this link
 

Last pic. BUY.
