St. Martin’s Press Buys Lady Gaga Fashion Book

48270.jpgLady Gaga will get a literary close up this year. In an auction, St. Martin’s Press bought Lady Gaga: Critical Mass Fashion from the book producer becker&mayer!. The company will rush the title for a Fall 2010 release.

The book will join a crowded slate of Lady Gaga books. Among others, Amazon already lists Lady Gaga: Behind the Fame by Emily Herbert; Fame: Lady Gaga by Dan Rafter and Tess Fowler; and, in the UK, Lady Gaga: “Just Dance”–The Biography by Helia Phoenix (pictured, via Orion Publishing Group).

Here’s more about the book: “Featuring 120 images of Lady Gaga and her garb, the highly stylized, modernly designed book is an examination of the pop star’s extreme couture and her success in constructing an image through fashion as well as music. Extended captions scattered throughout the book will break down specific costumes, while the main text of each chapter will explore a different thread of her wardrobe: masks, bodily functions, un-wearable shoes, and more.”
