About this deal

Could it indeed be that these dark, twisted fantasies are a little more true to life than they seem? Alexa Demie is an actor, musician, and multi-hyphenate talent who currently stars as Maddy in HBO's Euphoria. I think this book is a great signifier of the zeitgeist and the challenges womxn face today, particularly on social media and image-based communications. For Alexa and I, doing this book of fairy tales was almost the most accurate reflection of the world around us today. The stories by themselves are quite one-dimensional, but completely come to life with the photography.

love this book so so much i love alexa demie so much and the story is very short but that’s all i need. this is definitely a prized possession and i will forever be changed after witnessing it in all her glory. Initially bought for the photos, obviously, so I didnt expect there to be multiple stories, and they honestly exceeded my expectations.Vogue may earn a portion of sales from products that are purchased through our site as part of our Affiliate Partnerships with retailers. the quality and look of the pictures is gorgeous, and everything about the sets, make up, costumes, etc.

This trope recurs throughout the book, challenging ideas of empowerment and restriction, symbolic of the patriarchy and our power to repurpose oppressive devices. Alexa is currently working on her first EP, developing and producing film and TV, and engaged in social-impact work focused on equality and representation, especially for the Latinx community and the next generation of youth. Artist Petra Collins and actress Alexa Demie create nine erotic stories in a contemporary reimagining of a fairy tale book. The photos combine elements of camp, prosthetics, and shibari in a surreal update to the imagery of the Brothers Grimm, Hans Christian Anderson, Charles Perrault, and others.The darker European folklorists, from Charles Perrault to Hans Christian Andersen, spun stories with little resemblance to the Disney-sanitized versions we grew up on: The queen in Snow White wished to devour the girl’s lungs and liver, for example, and the evil stepsisters in Cinderella cut off their toes with a knife to fit into the glass slipper. Fairytales is an erotic folklore collection of Petra Collins and Alexa Demie s illustrated short stories. You approach them with innocence, and you revisit them as an adult and realize there’s more going on. The photos combine elements of camp, prosthetics, and shibari in a surreal update to the imagery of the Brothers Grimm, Hans Christian Andersen, Charles Perrault, and others.
