Amanda Palmer

After her TED talk garnered more than 8 million views, Amanda's eagerly awaited new book, The Art of Asking is here. Here's the story behind the making of the cover.

“Allan Amato’s cosmic camera sees through mortal skin to reveal the lambent ideal self beneath. Where Amato aims his lens, gods and superheroes, angels and demons are conjured; vinyl mythologies are summoned; mere flesh becomes dreamscape and deluxe collage where everything, especially the grotesque, is beautiful. Alchemist of light and composition, distiller of Platonic gold from leaden flesh, Renaissance futurist and musclebound death machine to boot; Allan Amato is easily my favorite photographer.” — Grant Morrison
