—New York Journal of Books
"Twenty-five years and 65 issues later, Visionaire is now known for publishing in countless experimental forms. The magazine’s new book Visionaire: Experiences in Art and Fashion, a collection of over 1,000 photographs, is out today from Rizzoli."
—New York Magazine
"Edited by Cecilia Dean and James Kaliardos, Visionaire is less a publication than a theory about what art can do when it thinks it’s fashion, and what fashion can do when it thinks it’s art, tested across media on an increasingly ambitious scale since the early 1990s."

I find very annoying that Stephen Gan is mostly, if not totally, left out and ignored in this project. Apparently, he was a co-founder of this mag as well, so why no explanation is given about what happened to him? Go figure.
I found one typo at the very end of the book. Photographer Ryan Mc... is given another surname. This makes me think that this book was printed to cash in a few bucks and no attention or love was put into the task.
As an outsider, I've never read or bought this mag before, I found the book to be superficial and lacking edge. Most of the contributors are people who totally belong the establishment. It's very boring seeing them saying and showing how fabulous they are. They are mostly the same people all the time!! No fresh air!! No risk-taking at all.
The authors just keep putting pics of themselves, some with Michelle Obama and other out-of-the-blue characters.... weird!!
Also many of the issues were sponsored by companies, so why do they say that they didn't rely on advertisement and that they were more free!? They are as commercial as it gets.
To my mind this isn't an edgy creative magazine.
To be fair there are some nice pics, but for that there are plenty of other better books.
This book might cater to brainless people that are easy to manipulate or to the people that appear on its pages.
