Rettenmund X Queerty Comments (0)

Check out my interview with Queerty in support of Encyclopedia Madonnica! My new edition runs 674 pages, and includes great new interviews with Liz Rosenberg, Susan Seidelman and more. It's $75 from me (or $125 if you want a hardcover), or you can grab it for $90 at Amazon, B&N, etc.

The book is for fans, and also serves as a Warholian object of interest, its own little work of art for your coffee table. A whole book about Madonna? Great.

I'll be hyping the book here a bit, but will try not to work it into every other post.

I'm proud to reveal the cover of my latest update of my book Encyclopedia Madonnica.

PAPERBACK STANDARD EDITION: It is on Amazon (I am #1 in new encyclopedias, and without those graphic illustrations of the nude body with little arrows pointing) and B&N — and other services soon, or I can sell paperbacks to the U.S., Europe and Australia (and probably other places — ask first) for $75US inclusive of shipping. For Canada, paperbacks from me are $90US.

HARDCOVERS: I'm selling hardcovers ONLY directly. The hardcover is just the same book with a premium hardcover, blue instead of pink cover text, and while not limited-edition, will wind up being less common because you only get them from me. Those are $125US anywhere in the world, including Canada.

Thank you to everyone who supports this project!

Xtra Magazine Talks ENCYCLOPEDIA MADONNICA! Comments (0)

EM Fine Arts Review 4 1 95Wayback Machine! Original press with my mentor, the late Jane Jordan Browne

Tonight at midnight, I'll be releasing the cover of my updated Encyclopedia Madonnica on my social media and here. Excited.

In the meantime, Xtra Magazine in Canada talked with me about Madonna (and more) — check it out.

And I do love Cher. I think they wanted to highlight my comment to stoke fan wars.

P.S. The book will be on Amazon ($90) within days or weeks, or you can buy a paperback form me directly ($75) at paypal.me/boyculture or a hardcover ($125) if you like a stiff read.

*****EM 20 COVER BY ALEJANDRO MOGOLLO EM20_RE_Cover_071816My new cover will be something you won't want to gloss over ... (Image via Boy Culture LLC)
 
BIG NEWS about my Encyclopedia Madonnica — I have worked for months with my designer, Anthony Coombs, giving the book its first total overhaul/update in over six years!
 
The book is finished and the plan is to release it on Amazon and other outlets in September!
 
NO COVER REVEAL YET.
 
* Just under 100 more pages
 
* New images
 
* Exclusive interviews (including Liz Rosenberg's first Madonna-centric interview in 30 years)
 
* A never-before-seen, early-years studio cover shot
 
Encyclopedia Madonnica is BIGGER and better than ever!
 
The book will retail for $90. (Hardcover is $125. Only printing about 50 of those — they're not numbered or limited edition per se, just very expensive to produce! But you are welcome to send $125 instead of $75 and you can order that one.)
 
For anyone who pre-orders the book from me directly — STARTING NOW — the TOTAL cost is $75 (or $125 for hardcover), which includes shipping anywhere on Planet Earth. I will order each copy manually once the book is available. (I can't sign — they will ship directly from the printer.)
 
Preferred payment method — be sure your correct shipping address is:
 
 
THANK YOU!
