''Red Hot 100'', photographer and redhead Thomas Knights' groundbreaking and best-selling book, helped to spark a revolution in the way Red haired men were perceived.
Now in his new book “Red Hot II”, he keeps the core message of the original - redefining the “ginger stereotype” with a strong anti-bullying message - but this time, focuses on celebrating what makes redheads unique, with a focus on pale skin, freckles, black, and mixed-race redheads.
And unlike the original “Red Hot 100” book, which focused exclusively on men and on close-up portraits, “Red Hot II” includes women, and has more full body shots (but there is no full frontal nudity). There is also a new luxury aesthetic, provided by British designer Elliott James Frieze, characterized by a midnight blue material background and embossed silver writing. The models' individual stories and unique looks are given more focus, with personal quotes from each sharing their stories and experiences. Enlightening, heart-warming, poetic, funny or sad ― the quotes give the viewer a unique perspective on what it is to grow up a redhead in the twenty-first century.
Featuring some of the hottest redheads from Europe, the Americas, the Middle East, and Australasia, this luxurious coffee table book measures 26.5cm by 34cm.
With a foreword by Jacky Harvey Collins, art historian and writer of the critically acclaimed ''Red — A History of the Redhead''.
