American photographer Jean Marie Reed came to her new-found role in the wonderful world of baby photography with great zeal and enthusiasm, in large measure because of her connection with and love of children. As a fashion photographer for the last eight years under her initials, J.M. Reed, she has worked internationally for such publications as Vogue, Harper¿s Bazaar, Marie Claire, and Elle. She has been sought after to photograph notable film stars, Olympic athletes and politicians. Jean Marie began her journey in the fashion industry working for nine years in front of the camera, based in Paris. From those early experiences, she was able to develop a uniquely empathic and nurturing approach to conducting her photo sessions, which has now translated into stunning results both in the images she creates as well as the pleasurable and fun environment on the sets. The conceptualization and creation of Baby Circus has been an exciting and rewarding experience for Jean Marie. She has enjoyed every moment spent with the babies. "Each child is truly special, beautiful and unique," reflects Jean Maria. "The journey has been one of great faith, imagination and love. It has been a rare gift indeed.".

Item Description: Doubleday, New York, 2006. Hardcover. Book Condition: Fine. Dust Jacket Condition: Fine. 1st. xii, 290 pages, illustrations; 25 cm. Tight, clean copy. Stated "First Edition." Fine DJ. "Americans are aging faster and getting fatter than any other population on the planet. At the same time, our popular notions of perfect beauty have become so strict it seems even Barbie wouldn't have a chance of making it into the local beauty pageant. Aging may be a natural fact of life, but for a growing number of Americans its hallmarks--wrinkles, love handles, jiggling flesh--are seen as obstacles to be conquered on the path to lasting, flawless beauty. In BEAUTY JUNKIES Alex Kuczynski, whose sly wit and fearless reporting in the Times has won her fans across the country, delivers a fresh and irresistible look at America's increasingly desperate pursuit of ultimate beauty by any means necessary. From a group of high-maintenance New York City women who devote themselves to preserving their looks twenty-four hours a day, to a 'surgery safari' in South Africa complete with photographs of magically rejuvenated patients posing with wild animals, to a podiatrist's office in Manhattan where a 'foot face-lift' provides women with the right fit for their $700 Jimmy Choos, Kuczynski portrays the all-American quest for self-transformation in all its extremes. In Los Angeles, women of an uncertain age even nip and tuck their most private areas, so every inch of their bodies is as taut as their lifted faces. With incomparable portraits of obsessive patients and the equally obsessed doctors who cater to their dreams, BEAUTY JUNKIES examines the hype, the hope, and the questionable ethics surrounding the advent of each new miraculous technique. Lively and entertaining, thought-provoking and disturbing, BEAUTY JUNKIES is destined to be one of the most talked-about books of the season. / ALEX KUCZYNSKI, a reporter for The New York Times, writes on such wide-ranging topics as Botox, Britney Spears, and Buddhism. She has also written for Vanity Fair, Vogue, Harper's Bazaar, Elle, Allure, The New York Times Book Review and The New York Times Magazine. She has been interviewed on the Today show, and has made many appearances on CNN, MSNBC, and CNBC. She lives in New York City." - Publisher. Size: 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. Collectible.

Item Description: Bulfinch, 1997. Book Condition: Used. This Book is in Good Condition. Clean Copy With Light Amount of Wear. 100% Guaranteed. Summary: Gordon Parks is a living legend. At age eighty-four, he can look back on accomplishments in many fields, including fiction, poetry, film, and music. But first and foremost, Parks is a photographer - a man whose indelible photojournalism, including two decades at Life magazine, has made him one of this century's most esteemed image makers. Accompanied throughout by Parks's recollections and reflections, the nearly 300 images collected in Half Past Autumn give us the full measure of this photographer's achievements for the first time. In the early 1940s, Parks launched his career with a remarkable array of documentary images for the Historical Section of the Farm Security Administration, including his unforgettable American Gothic photograph of Ella Watson, a black charwoman in Washington, D.C. During the same period, Parks landed fashion assignments at Vogue (Harper's Bazaar had rejected him because they wouldn't hire blacks), which paved the way for his later forays into the world of Parisian haute couture.

Item Description: Vintage Publishing, United Kingdom, 2005. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 198 x 129 mm. Language: English Brand New Book. The first book about Maeve Brennan, the recently rediscovered New Yorker writer from Ireland, who wrote like an angel, and looked like a fashion model, but became homeless in Manhattan in the 1970s and died forgotten in 1993. Born in Dublin in 1917 to politically active parents, Maeve Brennan s childhood in Ireland was moulded by the cultural ideologies of nationalism and lit by the creative energy of the Abbey and Gate theatres. She was seventeen when her father was appointed to the Irish Legation in Washington DC, where he was Irish Minister throughout World War II. Maeve wrote fashion copy at Harper s Bazaar until 1949, when William Shawn invited her to join The New Yorker. Tiny, impeccably groomed, and devastatingly witty, in William Maxwell s words, to be around her was to see style being invented . Her richly textured fiction criticism and Talk of the Town pieces, published in the 1950s and 60s, during The New Yorker s most influential period, offer unsparing portraits of the Ireland she had left and the America she inhabited. As this richly researched and wide-ranging book makes clear, Maeve Brennan s effect on the people who met her, her eye for human behaviour, clothing and domestic settings, her memory of home and her courageous life as a woman alone in metropolitan America make her an icon of the twentieth century.

Item Description: Random House USA Inc, United States, 2016. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Reprint. 203 x 132 mm. Language: English Brand New Book. A charming and insightful memoir about coming of age as a fashion journalist in 1980s Paris, by former Vogue and Harper s Bazaar editor Kate Betts, the author of Everyday Icon: Michelle Obama and the Power of Style You can always come back, my mother said. Just go. As a young woman, Kate Betts nursed a dream of striking out on her own in a faraway place and becoming a glamorous foreign correspondent. After college and not without trepidation she took off for Paris, renting a room in the apartment of a young BCBG ( bon chic, bon genre ) family and throwing herself into the local culture. She was determined to master French slang, style, and savoir faire, and to find a job that would give her a reason to stay. After a series of dues-paying jobs that seemed only to reinforce her outsider status, Kate s hard work and willingness to take on any assignment paid off: Her writing and intrepid forays into la France Profonde true France caught the eye of John Fairchild, the mercurial fashion arbiter and publisher of Women s Wear Daily, the industry s bible. Kate s earliest assignments investigating the mineral water preferred by high society, chasing after a costumed band of wild boar hunters through the forests of Brittany were a rough apprenticeship, but she was rewarded for her efforts and was initiated into the elite ranks of Mr. Fairchild s trusted few who sat beside him in the front row and at private previews in the ateliers of the gods of French fashion. From a woozy yet mesmerizing Yves Saint Laurent and the mischievous and commanding Karl Lagerfeld to the riotous, brilliant young guns who were rewriting all the rules Martin Margiela, Helmut Lang, John Galliano Betts gives us a view of what it was like to be an American girl, learning about herself, falling in love, and finding her tribe. Kate Betts s captivating memoir brings to life the enchantment of France from the nightclubs of 1980s Paris where she learned to dance Le Rock, to the lavender fields of Provence and the grand spectacle of the Cour Carree and magically re-creates that moment in life when a young woman discovers who she s meant to be. Praise for My Paris Dream [A] glittering coming-of-age tale. Entertainment Weekly (The Must List) Fashion and self-examination froth and wisdom might seem like odd bookfellows, but Betts brings them together with winning confidence.

Item Description: Random House, 2012. Book Condition: Used. This Book is in Good Condition. Clean Copy With Light Amount of Wear. 100% Guaranteed. Summary: Beautiful. Willful. Charming. Blunt. Grace Coddington's extraordinary talent and fierce dedication to her work as creative director of Vogue have made her an international icon. Known through much of her career only to those behind the scenes, she might have remained fashion's best-kept secret were it not for The September Issue, the acclaimed 2009 documentary that turned publicity-averse Grace into a sudden, reluctant celebrity. Grace's palpable engagement with her work brought a rare insight into the passion that produces many of the magazine's most memorable shoots. With the witty, forthright voice that has endeared her to her colleagues and peers for more than forty years, Grace now creatively directs the reader through the storied narrative of her life so far. Evoking the time when models had to tote their own bags and props to shoots, Grace describes her early career as a model, working with such world-class photographers as David Bailey and Norman Parkinson, before she stepped behind the camera to become a fashion editor at British Vogue in the late 1960s. Here she began creating the fantasy "travelogues" that would become her trademark. In 1988 she joined American Vogue, where her breathtakingly romantic and imaginative fashion features, a sampling of which appear in this book, have become instant classics. Delightfully underscored by Grace's pen-and-ink illustrations, Grace will introduce readers to the colorful designers, hairstylists, makeup artists, photographers, models, and celebrities with whom Grace has created her signature images. Grace reveals her private world with equal candor--the car accident that almost derailed her modeling career, her two marriages, the untimely death of her sister, Rosemary, her friendship with Harper's Bazaar editor-in-chief Liz Tilberis, and her thirty-year romance with Didier Malige. Finally, Grace describes her abiding relationship with Anna Wintour, and the evolving mastery by which she has come to define the height of fashion. NAMED ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY FINANCIAL TIMES "If Wintour is the Pope . . . Coddington is Michelangelo, trying to paint a fresh version of the Sistine Chapel twelve times a year."-- Time. Bookseller Inventory # ABE_book_usedgood_0812993357

Item Description: Vintage Publishing. Paperback. Book Condition: new. BRAND NEW, Maeve Brennan: Wit, Style and Tragedy - An Irish Writer in New York, Angela Bourke, The first book about Maeve Brennan, the recently rediscovered New Yorker writer from Ireland, who wrote like an angel, and looked like a fashion model, but became homeless in Manhattan in the 1970s and died forgotten in 1993. Born in Dublin in 1917 to politically active parents, Maeve Brennan's childhood in Ireland was moulded by the cultural ideologies of nationalism and lit by the creative energy of the Abbey and Gate theatres. She was seventeen when her father was appointed to the Irish Legation in Washington DC, where he was Irish Minister throughout World War II. Maeve wrote fashion copy at Harper's Bazaar until 1949, when William Shawn invited her to join The New Yorker. Tiny, impeccably groomed, and devastatingly witty, in William Maxwell's words, 'to be around her was to see style being invented'. Her richly textured fiction criticism and 'Talk of the Town' pieces, published in the 1950s and '60s, during The New Yorker's most influential period, offer unsparing portraits of the Ireland she had left and the America she inhabited. As this richly researched and wide-ranging book makes clear, Maeve Brennan's effect on the people who met her, her eye for human behaviour, clothing and domestic settings, her memory of home and her courageous life as a woman alone in metropolitan America make her an icon of the twentieth century.

Item Description: Random House, 2012. Book Condition: New. Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: Beautiful. Willful. Charming. Blunt. Grace Coddington's extraordinary talent and fierce dedication to her work as creative director of Vogue have made her an international icon. Known through much of her career only to those behind the scenes, she might have remained fashion's best-kept secret were it not for The September Issue, the acclaimed 2009 documentary that turned publicity-averse Grace into a sudden, reluctant celebrity. Grace's palpable engagement with her work brought a rare insight into the passion that produces many of the magazine's most memorable shoots. With the witty, forthright voice that has endeared her to her colleagues and peers for more than forty years, Grace now creatively directs the reader through the storied narrative of her life so far. Evoking the time when models had to tote their own bags and props to shoots, Grace describes her early career as a model, working with such world-class photographers as David Bailey and Norman Parkinson, before she stepped behind the camera to become a fashion editor at British Vogue in the late 1960s. Here she began creating the fantasy "travelogues" that would become her trademark. In 1988 she joined American Vogue, where her breathtakingly romantic and imaginative fashion features, a sampling of which appear in this book, have become instant classics. Delightfully underscored by Grace's pen-and-ink illustrations, Grace will introduce readers to the colorful designers, hairstylists, makeup artists, photographers, models, and celebrities with whom Grace has created her signature images. Grace reveals her private world with equal candor--the car accident that almost derailed her modeling career, her two marriages, the untimely death of her sister, Rosemary, her friendship with Harper's Bazaar editor-in-chief Liz Tilberis, and her thirty-year romance with Didier Malige. Finally, Grace describes her abiding relationship with Anna Wintour, and the evolving mastery by which she has come to define the height of fashion. NAMED ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY FINANCIAL TIMES "If Wintour is the Pope . . . Coddington is Michelangelo, trying to paint a fresh version of the Sistine Chapel twelve times a year."-- Time. Bookseller Inventory # ABE_book_new_0812993357

A charming and insightful memoir about coming of age as a fashion journalist in 1980s Paris, by former Vogue and Harper s Bazaar editor Kate Betts, the author of Everyday Icon: Michelle Obama and the Power of Style You can always come back, my mother said. Just go. As a young woman, Kate Betts nursed a dream of striking out on her own in a faraway place and becoming a glamorous foreign correspondent. After college and not without trepidation she took off for Paris, renting a room in the apartment of a young BCBG ( bon chic, bon genre ) family and throwing herself into the local culture. She was determined to master French slang, style, and savoir faire, and to find a job that would give her a reason to stay. After a series of dues-paying jobs that seemed only to reinforce her outsider status, Kate s hard work and willingness to take on any assignment paid off: Her writing and intrepid forays into la France Profonde true France caught the eye of John Fairchild, the mercurial fashion arbiter and publisher of Women s Wear Daily, the industry s bible. Kate s earliest assignments investigating the mineral water preferred by high society, chasing after a costumed band of wild boar hunters through the forests of Brittany were a rough apprenticeship, but she was rewarded for her efforts and was initiated into the elite ranks of Mr. Fairchild s trusted few who sat beside him in the front row and at private previews in the ateliers of the gods of French fashion. From a woozy yet mesmerizing Yves Saint Laurent and the mischievous and commanding Karl Lagerfeld to the riotous, brilliant young guns who were rewriting all the rules Martin Margiela, Helmut Lang, John Galliano Betts gives us a view of what it was like to be an American girl, learning about herself, falling in love, and finding her tribe. Kate Betts s captivating memoir brings to life the enchantment of France from the nightclubs of 1980s Paris where she learned to dance Le Rock, to the lavender fields of Provence and the grand spectacle of the Cour Carree and magically re-creates that moment in life when a young woman discovers who she s meant to be. Praise for My Paris Dream [A] glittering coming-of-age tale.

Item Description: Duke University Press, United States, 2011. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 234 x 155 mm. Language: English Brand New Book. Since the 1990s, young Asian Americans including Doo-Ri Chung, Derek Lam, Thakoon Panichgul, Alexander Wang, and Jason Wu have emerged as leading fashion designers. They have won prestigious awards, been chosen to head major clothing labels, and had their designs featured in Vogue, Harper s Bazaar, and other fashion magazines. At the same time that these designers were rising to prominence, the fashion world was embracing Asian chic. During the 1990s, Asian shapes, fabrics, iconography, and colors filled couture runways and mass-market clothing racks. In The Beautiful Generation, Thuy Linh Nguyen Tu explores the role of Asian American designers in New York s fashion industry, paying particular attention to how they relate to the garment workers who produce their goods and to Asianness as a fashionable commodity. She draws on conversations with design students, fashion curators, and fashion publicists; interviews with nearly thirty Asian American designers who have their own labels; and time spent with those designers in their shops and studios, on their factory visits, and at their fashion shows. The Beautiful Generation links the rise of Asian American designers to historical patterns of immigration, racial formation, and globalized labor, and to familial and family-like connections between designers and garment workers.

Pictorial boards, 239 pp., chiefly illus., bib. notes, index; 23 cm.Firm binding, clean inside copy. Publisher's mylar jacket with light edgewear. "In late 1964, Andy Warhol commissioned young fashion photographer David McCabe to document his daily activities for one year. During the course of this project, whenever the artist called, McCabe would come to meet him either at the factory, an opening, a party, a coffeeshop or any place where Warhol wanted to be accompanied by the photographer and his camera. In the end, these images were never published, perhaps because they revealed more than the increasingly-famous Warhol was willing to share with the public. Hidden away for almost 40 years, the significant majority of these photographs are now presented together for the first time to largely fulfill their original intention, A Year in the Life of Andy Warhol. These images not only represent unique documentation of one of the most significant artists of the twentieth century, they also provide a behind-the-scenes look at the New York City art world at a time when Pop Art was at its peak. McCabe's photographs are accompanied by the descriptions and reminiscences of Factory insider David Dalton, one of Warhol's first assistants. / David McCabe was born in 1940 in Leicester, England, where he studied graphic design and photography. While in art school, he won an international photo competition sponsored by the magazine Practical Photography and was hired by the Mayflower photo studio in London. In 1960, he moved to New York City, where he first worked as an assistant and studied under Alexey Brodovitch, Henry Wolf, and Melvin Sokolsky. He received his first assignment with Cond Nast in 1963, and was contacted by Andy Warhol the following year. McCabe's photographs have been published in various magazines including Life, Harpers Bazaar, Mademoiselle, W, French Elle, French Vogue, London Times, and a handful of his photographs of Andy Warhol have recently been exhibited in many museums around the world. David Dalton was a founding editor of Rolling Stone, and is the author of some dozen fiction and non-fiction books, including 'James Dean: The Mutant King' and 'El Sid: Saint Vicious.' As teenagers he and his sister Sarah were Andy Warhol's first assistants. With Warhol he designed in 1964 the Fab issue of the magazine Aspen. - Publisher. Size: 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall.

Since the 1990s, young Asian Americans including Doo-Ri Chung, Derek Lam, Thakoon Panichgul, Alexander Wang, and Jason Wu have emerged as leading fashion designers. They have won prestigious awards, been chosen to head major clothing labels, and had their designs featured in Vogue, Harper s Bazaar, and other fashion magazines. At the same time that these designers were rising to prominence, the fashion world was embracing Asian chic. During the 1990s, Asian shapes, fabrics, iconography, and colors filled couture runways and mass-market clothing racks. In The Beautiful Generation, Thuy Linh Nguyen Tu explores the role of Asian American designers in New York s fashion industry, paying particular attention to how they relate to the garment workers who produce their goods and to Asianness as a fashionable commodity. She draws on conversations with design students, fashion curators, and fashion publicists; interviews with nearly thirty Asian American designers who have their own labels; and time spent with those designers in their shops and studios, on their factory visits, and at their fashion shows. The Beautiful Generation links the rise of Asian American designers to historical patterns of immigration, racial formation, and globalized labor, and to familial and family-like connections between designers and garment workers.

Item Description: University of Pennsylvania Press, United States, 2011. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 226 x 152 mm. Language: English Brand New Book. Selected by Choice magazine as an Outstanding Academic Title for 2009 When Broadway Was the Runway explores the central and largely unacknowledged role of commercial Broadway theater in the birth of modern American fashion and consumer culture. Long before Hollywood s red carpet spectacles, Broadway theater introduced American women to the latest styles. At the beginning of the twentieth century, theater impresarios captured the imagination of their largely female patrons by transforming the stage into a glorious site of consumer spectacle. Theater historian Marlis Schweitzer examines how these impresarios presented the dresses actresses wore onstage, as well as the jewelry and hairstyles they chose, as commodities that were available for purchase in nearby department stores and salons. The Merry Widow Hat, designed for the hit operetta of the same name, sparked an international craze, and the dancer Irene Castle became a fashion celebrity when she anticipated the flapper look of the 1920s by nearly a decade. Not only were the latest styles onstage, but advertisements appeared throughout theaters, in programs, and on the curtains, while magazines such as Vogue vied for the rights to publish theatrical costume sketches and Harper s Bazaar enticed readers with photo spreads of actresses in couture. This combination of spectatorship and consumption was a crucial step in the formation of a mass market for consumer goods and the rise of the cult of celebrity. Through historical analysis and dozens of early photographs and illustrations, Schweitzer aims a spotlight at the cultural and economic convergence of the theater and fashion industries in the United States.
