Jean-Paul Goude has worked at the forefront of commercial art, advertising and illustration for over three decades. From his time as art director at Esquire, to his unforgettable photographs of Grace Jones, to his advertising work for Chanel, Kodak, Cacharel and the Galeries Lafayette, and even to his work with the latest supermodels—Goude has triumphantly captured, time after time, the spirit of his age. He is the author of So Far So Goude, The Goude Touch, and Jean-Paul Goude.
