160 full color, perfect bound pages of fan mail and fan art for Madonna Louise Ciccone. A rare and otherwise unmatched collection of fan art pertaining to one enduring megastar, assembled at the height of her celebrity from the late 1980s to the late 1990s. To have access to such an archive, one must either BE a megastar or represent such a megastar. Almost no one falls into these categories; these works are more closely guarded than FBI files or Pentagon papers. Accumulated by Madonna’s management company and intended for disposal, an enterprising, anonymous employee rescued this bounty (leaving behind dozens of bags full of similar materials to be incinerated.) They remained in storage for over twenty years before emerging again.
