Beyoncé Just Released the Most Stylish 600-Page Coffee Table Book

Anyone familiar with Beyoncé’s landmark sixth record, Lemonade, will tell you it’s more than just an album. Personal, political, and unapologetically honest, it stands as the crowning achievement in the career of one of music’s most beloved artists, thanks in large part to its stunning visuals. Whether you watched the HBO special or tuned in for one of Beyoncé’s jaw-dropping Formation tour performances, the impact was impossible to ignore. Yet the full scope of its journey from idea to final product has been kept under wraps—until now. Today Beyoncé will release How to Make Lemonade, an expansive 600-page book that finally takes the audience behind the scenes with an array of exclusive photos, outtakes, and art that shines light on her dynamic use of fashion to convey her message.

The book offers an in-depth look at each element of Lemonade’s visual presentation, putting the project’s many influences, collaborators, and cameos on display. Through collages and photographic juxtapositions, Beyoncé’s it-takes-a-village method of creativity comes into full view. From the Laolu Senbanjo Yoruba body painting featured in “Sorry” to the wardrobe of artfully customized Gucci in “Formation,” each aesthetic detail is now featured and given greater context. Many of these fashion-forward touches register as merely stylish in music video format, but are in fact imbued with deeper meaning. Case in point: One section outlines the connection between a head wrap and Louisiana’s Tignon laws, which restricted the dress of Creole women in an effort to maintain the state’s racist social hierarchies.
