About the coffee-table book: The Art of Ruth E. Carter, the definitive, deluxe art book from costume design legend Ruth E. Carter: Ruth E. Carter is a living legend of costume design. For three decades, she has shaped the story of the Black experience on screen — from the 1980s streetwear of “Do the Right Thing” to the royal regalia of “Coming to America.” Her work on Marvel’s “Black Panther” and “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever” not only brought Afrofuturism to the mainstream but also made her the first Black winner of an Oscar in costume design and the first Black woman to win two Academy Awards in any category. In 2021, she became the second-ever costume designer to receive a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
