From the publisher:

Fictionally Fabulous is a full-color illustrated guide to dozens of beloved characters who changed the face of fashion: from the flapper era embodied by Louise Brooks to polka dot-studded housewife Lucy Ricardo, working-girl chic Mary Richards, tartan-skirted Cher Horowitz in Clueless, the Scandalous Olivia Pope, and all our favorite style stars in between. Each fashion hero is showcased in gorgeously whimsical style by Higgins, who offers stunning views of their most memorable moments, inspiration boards, and profiles describing each character's signature style and trend-setting influence.

From the publisher:

As someone who has deconstructed life’s hilarious facade, RuPaul has broken "the fourth wall" to expand on the concept of mind, body, and spirit. This unique perspective has allowed RuPaul to break the shackles of self-imposed limitations, but reader beware, this is a daily practice that requires diligence and touchstones to keep you walking in the sunshine of the spirit. Once you’re willing to look beyond the identity that was given to you, a hidden world of possibilities will open its doors.

4. For the Art Historian | Everyday Monet by Aileen Bordman
