Famous male faces
© Famous Faces – Takkoda, published by teNeues, www.teneues.com. Photo © 2010 Takkoda. Please do not name any real person, living or dead, in conjunction with the images. These are real pets, not real celebrities. The well-known individuals have not had any involvement in the creation of the images and they have not approved them, nor has their approval been sought for the publication of these images.

The book “Famous Faces” by takkoda, teNeues Publishing Company 2011, is an encyclopedic effort like Madame Tussaud’s project.

Maybe I’m wrong sometimes trying to analyze that modern iconography, some of them I did not recognize, I’m German not British, I’m a philosopher, not a pop music fan: but I’m sure, other readers would identify more of the famous faces. By the way: “The well-known individuals have not had any involvement in the creation of the images and they have not approved them …”

    • Lagerfeld is always amused if he discovers cartoons featuring him.
      Sometimes it is maybe hard in our life not to lose sovereignty –
