Liberace Extravaganza! by award-winning costume designers Connie Furr Soloman and Jan Jewett is an opulent display of the renowned entertainer’s dazzling and over-the-top costumes.

No one would ever accuse Wladzlu Valentino Liberace of being demure. The internationally celebrated star is almost as well known for his eye-catching, flamboyant fashion as he is for his music.

Authorized by the Liberace Foundation, Liberace Extravaganza! features 150 full-color photographs of his unique garments, 20 original drawings from Liberace’s designers’ sketchbooks, behind-the-scenes stories from some of his most trusted couturiers and friends, and a foreword from Michael Travis, Liberace’s principle designer.
