An illuminating portrait of this imaginative, charming, and talented man, and his contribution to the world of photography.

Cecil Beaton was a man of dazzling charm and style, and his talents were many. At the age of twenty he sent Vogue an out-of focus snap of a college play, and for the next half-century and more he kept readers of the magazine up to date on all the various activities of his career.

Condé Nast, the owner of Vogue, convinced Beaton to abandon his pocket Kodak, and his resulting photographic work earned him a place among the great chroniclers of fashion. Witty and inventive, he also designed settings for plays and films―and for himself―and as a writer he was an eloquent champion of stylish living. This book includes articles, drawings, and photographs by Beaton dating from the 1920s to the 1970s. Beaton loved Vogue, and his contributions testify to the wit, imagination, and professionalism that he and the magazine always had in common.

About the Author:

Josephine Ross is the author of books on style, history, and the British monarchy. She lives in London.

Review:

“A love letter to Beaton summarizing his years at Vogue, overflowing with illustrations.”
- Library Journal

“By its physicality, this is a book meant to adorn a coffee table but it is so much more than a pretty face. Beaton in Vogue is a beautifully executed look at the life and work of a multi-talented artist.”
- Portland Book Review

“...a perfect book for the uninitiated or those of us who need to be reminded of the photographic genius that was Cecil Beaton.”
- New York Journal of Books

“And, of course, Beaton’s drawings throughout have great charm.”
- The Passionate Reader

“Generously illustrated with excellent reproductions.”
- The Photo Review

Book Description Thames Hudson Ltd, United Kingdom, 2012. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. Cecil Beaton (1904-1980) was a man of dazzling charm and style, and his talents were many. In his twenties, he recorded London and New York society in needle-sharp words and drawings, and then, at Conde Nasts insistence, in photographs. The resulting work earned him a place among the great chroniclers of fashion. In this classic book, now in a sumptuous paperback edition after many years out of print, Josephine Ross selects and introduces articles, drawings and photographs by Beaton dating from the 1920s to the 1970s. It includes Beatons essays and vignettes on high society and its denizens, as well as such stars of the arts as Greta Garbo, Ralph Richardson, Pablo Picasso and David Hockney. It also reproduces Beatons war photographs, drawings and writings, from bombed London to China and the North Africa Desert. Beaton loved Vogue , and his contributions testify to the wit, imagination and professionalism that the man and the magazine always had in common. Seller Inventory # AA29780500290248
