Pirates is a map to the scenic world of the buccaneer, looking back to classical artwork, maps, and advertising to reveal how these iconic figures make their presence known today. It shows how style idols like David Bowie and the Rolling Stones incorporated the pirate's sense of romanticism and danger into their looks, and how the pirating lifestyle has been represented in fashion, advertising and art, cartoons, costume design, films and musicals. With a broad array of culturally diverse pirates both fictional and real represented, Pirates visually demonstrates the roguish allure that has been captivating artists, designers, and fashionistas for centuries.
