A book is much more than the paper, ink and glue it's made of. Its materials are merely a hold-fast, its over-arching purpose to communicate. Printed on blank sheets it carries the voice of its time. It's content holds history in the illustrations, photographs and words. It describes the fashion of an era- what was of interest, what was important, what people wanted to know more about. They exist as a legacy. Lined up on the shelf or stacked in pile - immortalised, woven and bound. To be collected, cherished and passed to the next generation.
Carine Roitfeld Irreverent & I'm With The Band by Pamela Des Barres is on order and yet to be acquired is The Beautiful People's Beauty Book by Luciana Pignatelli.
