The 60th anniversary of Queen Elizabeth II’s XL jubilee was fêted by Taschen Verlag with an XL coffee-table book. The newest version—a jumbo book of almost 400 pages with 370 color plates and a handmade cover—is a play on the Taschen tome by three Iranian-born contemporary artists, Ramin Haerizadeh, Rokni Haerizadeh and Hesam Rahmanian. In their majestic satire, the world’s most famous monarch blossoms forth as a drag queen, the royal house as Animal Farm, and the royal insignia as stage props and rickety state coaches. A grandiose master- piece of draftsmanship and the art of collage, Her Majesty? is a delirium of caustic wit, not intended as heartless. The trio—two brothers and a childhood friend—live and work (in exile) in Dubai on their multimedia installations. In 2015 they exhibited at Kunsthalle Zürich and the ICA Boston, among other international venues.
