"Ruth E. Carter: Costume Couture" is the definitive and deluxe art book showcasing the legendary costume designer's three-decade career.

From the '80s streetwear of "Do the Right Thing" to the regalia of "Coming 2 America" and the groundbreaking Afrofuturism of "Black Panther," Carter has shaped the story of the Black experience on screen.

The book features Carter's origins, anecdotes from dressing Hollywood greats, and insights into her passion for history and Afrofuturism. With visuals including sketches, mood boards, and film stills, this book celebrates Carter's iconic work and contributions to cinema.

A foreword by Danai Gurira and behind-the-scenes glimpses of "Black Panther: Wakanda Forever" enhance the rich narrative. Perfect for fans of Ruth E. Carter, Black Panther, and the intersection of fashion and film.
