eagerly awaiting, the ultimate SCRAPbook.
from Assouline with a delayed release date of November - It may be THE ultimate holiday gift for purveyors of STYLE.
compiled by James Danziger of Danziger Projects in New York & former Director of Photography at the London Sunday Times Magazine, features editor of Vanity Fair, and director of Magnum New York.
As one of the 20th century’s most important photographers, Cecil Beaton helped invent the cult of the celebrity image while pushing the boundaries of his art form with innovative techniques and staging. In the course of his decades-long career as a photographer for Vogue and Vanity Fair, as well as a British war correspondent, Cecil Beaton documented lives both famous and quotidian in dozens of scrapbooks now held by Sotheby’s London.
I can just see Cecil & Garbo "scrapping" in Beaton's living room at the Plaza Hotel, c.1964.
