About this deal

Alexa Demie is an actor, musician and multi-hyphenate talent who currently stars as ‘Maddy’ in HBO’s EUPHORIA. The photos are gorgeous and the aesthetic sucked me in immediately… an overall let down even though I enjoyed the art. Could it indeed be that these dark, twisted fantasies are a little more true to life than they seem?

Instead of glimpsing each other across a crowded room, they connected as any good millennials with a mutual admiration of each other’s work would: through a DM on Instagram. Fairy Tales is] a collaboration with the photographer Petra Collins -- a body of work that reimagines the female creatures who inhabit folk- and fairy-tales, who are often cast as one-dimensional monsters or temptresses. Fairy Tales is] a collaboration with the photographer Petra Collins -- a body of work that reimagines the female creatures who inhabit folk- and fairy-tales, who are often cast as one-dimensional monsters or temptresses.the quality and look of the pictures is gorgeous, and everything about the sets, make up, costumes, etc. Created in collaboration with Euphoria star and muse Alexa Demie, Collins has just dropped “Fairy Tales,” her latest book in the form of nine erotic short stories based on works by the Brothers Grimm, Hans Christian Anderson, and more. As children, Petra and Alexa were both enamored with fairy tales, which provided an escape from their own painful realities.

I absolutely loved the artistic direction, set design, alexa’s modeling, and of course the graphic design. Now more than a year later, the fruits of their labor are being released in a lavishly illustrated, 152-page hardbound book, Fairy Tales, out next week from Rizzoli. Created in collaboration with Euphoria star and muse Alexa Demie, Collins has just dropped "Fairy Tales," her latest book in the form of nine erotic short stories based on works by the Brothers Grimm, Hans Christian Anderson, and more. 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.It felt half-baked, stories obviously being made up afterwards in an attempt to form some sort of narrative for each photo series in each chapter. honestly 4/5 stars still for the absolutely ethereal and fantastical photography but 0/5 for any words written on any page in this “erotic” book. Demie represents womxn through different lenses, all with outcomes of alienation and objectification.
