Praise

“Highly enjoyable, extremely interesting and very accessible, this book is an essential guide to drag, its history, its impact and its continued potency.”
—Amrou Al-Kadhi

“So fun, so thorough and so beautiful! It taught me more about drag than I could have ever imagined, because until this book it hasn’t been quite so well documented.”
—Amelia Abraham

“I’ve always thought drag queens could save the world and this book helps prove my point.”
—Miss Coco Peru

“Only a book as beautiful and broad as this could possibly honour the history of drag. This book is utterly desirable as an art object but also hugely informative about the art of drag, the queer rebellion of drag and drag as a political statement as well as cultural art form. A thing of beauty!”
—Juno Roche

“The pages glow with brilliantly colorful illustrations, capturing all the queenly glamour; hot pinks and moody teals are contrasted with butter yellows and acid greens. Wigs have never looked taller, nor eye shadow so excessive. The result is a truly fabulous combination history and gift book.”
Publishers Weekly 

“a celebration of drag’s weird and wacky history from all sorts of cultures and histories, with absolutely stunning art.”
—Glad Day Bookshop
