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 very good condition; The clear plastic dust jacket with printed red "Avedon" signature has some general yellowing--a common flaw with this book--some cracking and slight loss at creases. I have fashioned another acetate cover that fits neatly over the original, protecting and preserving it.
