The Art of Drag

Lights. Glamour. Action!

Take a peek into the cultural phenomenon that is Drag, in this lusciously illustrated guide to the history of the phenomenon, from ancient theatre to the queens of RuPaul’s Drag Race.

The history of drag has been formed by many intersections: fashion, theatre, sexuality and politics – all coming together to create the show stopping entertainment millions witness today. In this lusciously illustrated guide, journalist Jake Hall delves deep into the ancient beginnings of drag, to the present day and beyond. Vibrant illustrations enhance the rich history from Kabuki theatre to Shakespeare, the revolutionary Stonewall riots to the thriving New York ballroom scene. The book also comes with fascinating glimpses into the future of drag with insights from personalities including The Vixen, Crystal Rasmussen, Sweatmother and Don One.

From Paris Is Burning to Pose and from Lady Bunny to Victoria Sin, nothing will go untouched in this must-have documentation of all things drag.
