Karl Lagerfeld's books

Some time ago there was this throwaway comment in Vogue that Karl Lagerfeld had 60,000 volumes in his library. Have wanted to find out what kind of books ever since. This documentary, in six parts, does not answer my curiosity explicitly, but provides plenty of clues to his appetites (and if you make it to the silent "audio disabled by copyright" part six, you find out the the books are 30,000, but still...)

I like the humor infusing the pop culture and art appropriations that run through the work of Miss Bugs.
