Avedon: Photographs 1947-1977
by Richard Avedon
New York: Farrar, Strauss & Giroux, 1978. This is one of our favorite books of fashion photography, with Marella Agnelli on the cover. Balenciaga, Cecil Beaton, Marisa Berensen, Christian Berard, Ingrid Boulting, Chanel, Courreges, Lily Dache, Givenchy, Audrey Hepburn, Schiaparelli. Diana Vreeland, Veruschka, Twiggy, Penelope Tree, Jeanne Moreau, Jacqueline de Ribes, etc., etc., etc. Book is in excellent condition; The clear plastic dust jacket with printed red "Avedon" signature has a band of browning along bottom edge, and some browning at spine. It has a little wear and loss, especially a small margin near base of spine. I have fashioned another acetate cover that fits neatly over the original, protecting and preserving it.
