A journal with cute baby pictures for capturing your thoughts. Every day is entertaining under the Big Top, and these babies are born performers. Catch the pint-size stars and their acts on the covers and interiors of these Baby Circus journals by Jean Marie. Each journal has ruled pages and a ribbon marker. 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: 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. The New York Times Book Review As light and refreshing as an ice cream cone from the legendary Berthillon, My Paris Dream evokes the sights, sounds, smells and styles of 1980s Paris. USA Today My Paris Dream is awesome. Man Repeller What was Bett s Paris dream? Her dream was her awakening, [which] is elegantly chronicled in these pages. The Daily Beast For those who are interested in the men and women involved in haute couture, Betts reminiscences will be a delight. Kirkus Reviews Full of slangy French, delectable food and swoon-worthy fashion. BookPage An amazing story of a young woman in Paris trying to break into the fashion business.

Firm binding, clean inside copy. Front free endpaper (blank) removed. Fine DJ. OVERSIZE! No priority/international, except by special arrangement. Profusely illustrated. "In the early 1960s Jackie Kennedy wrote to Diana Vreeland: "you are and always will be my fashion mentor." Vreeland helped the young First Lady create her famous "Jackie look" which was imitated all over America. She had inspired readers of Harper Bazaar's with her brilliant tips from the mid 1930s to the early '60s and ran Vogue as editor-in-chief in its most innovative years (1963-1972). Then for thirteen years she organized the hugely successful annual costume history shows at the Costume Institute of the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Known for her flamboyant personality, her striking looks, and impeccable taste, Diana Vreeland changed fashion forever. Now, we can begin to assess her immense contribution in Diana Vreeland. This lavishly illustrated biography includes more than 300 full-color and black and white photographs many from Vreeland's own family scrapbooks and collection which have never been seen before, of family and friends and the talented people in the fashion world whom she inspired -- designers, models, and celebrities." - Publisher.

Item Description: Vintage Publishing, United Kingdom, 2011. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 198 x 129 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. 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: Thunder¿s Mouth Press, New York, 2000. Soft cover. Book Condition: Near Fine. No Jacket. Newton, Helmut (illustrator). Special Edition. 4to - over 9¾ - 12" tall. Inside in near fine condition with no marks, tears, or dog-ears. Book is tight. Glossy b/w cover in very good condition but for shelf rubbing. Not a remaindered book. XX From the introduction: ¿For ten years, between 1985 and 1995, Helmut Newton published his best pictures in his own magazine Helmut Newton's Illustrated. Four editions appeared during this time: No. 1. Sex and Power, No. 2. Pictures from an Exhibition, No. 3 I was there, and No. 4 Dr. Phantasme. All have since become true collectors¿ items. With their admixture of provocative nudes, journalistic pictures which are no less affronting, and sensational portraits, these four numbers from Helmut Newton's Illustrated remain today the strongest visual record we possess from the 1980s and '90s. It is with the greatest pleasure, at the beginning of a new century, that we present this collection of Newton's best pictures in a complete edition. Newton at his best, in other words, a heady mix of sex, beauty and power in a single publication that opens up new erotic vistas.¿ XX From the Wikipedia biography: Helmut Newton (born Helmut Neustädter; 31 October 1920 ¿ 23 January 2004) was a German-Australian photographer. He was a "prolific, widely imitated fashion photographer whose provocative, erotically charged black-and-white photos were a mainstay of Vogue and other publications." Newton was born in Berlin, the son of Klara "Claire" (née Marquis) and Max Neustädter, a button factory owner. Newton attended the Heinrich-von-Treitschke-Realgymnasium and the American School in Berlin. Interested in photography from the age of 12, he worked for the German photographer Yva (Elsie Neuländer Simon) from 1936. The increasingly oppressive restrictions placed on Jews by the Nuremberg laws meant that his father lost control of the factory; he was briefly interned in a concentration camp on Kristallnacht, 9 November 1938, which finally compelled the family to leave Germany. Newton's parents fled to South America. Helmut was issued with a passport just after turning 18 and left Germany on 5 December 1938. At Trieste he boarded the Conte Rosso, intending to journey to China. After arriving in Singapore he found he was able to remain there, first briefly as a photographer for the Straits Times and then as a portrait photographer. Newton was interned by British authorities while in Singapore and was sent to Australia, arriving in Sydney on 27 September 1940. Internees traveled to the camp at Tatura, Victoria by train under armed guard. He was released from internment in 1942 and briefly worked as a fruit picker in Northern Victoria. In April 1942, he enlisted with the Australian Army and worked as a truck driver. After the war in 1945, he became a British subject and changed his name to Newton in 1946. In 1948, he married actress June Browne (June Brunell). In 1946, Newton set up a studio in fashionable Flinders Lane in Melbourne and worked on fashion and theatre photography in the affluent postwar years. Newton's growing reputation as a fashion photographer was rewarded when he secured a commission to illustrate fashions in a special Australian supplement for Vogue magazine, published in January 1956. He won a 12-month contract with British Vogue and left for London in February 1957. Newton settled in Paris in 1961 and continued to work as a fashion photographer. His images appeared in magazines including the French edition of Vogue and Harper's Bazaar. He established a particular style marked by erotic, stylized scenes, often with sado-masochistic and fetishistic subtexts. A heart attack in 1970 reduced Newton's output, but his profile continued to increase, especially with his 1980 "Big Nudes" series, which marked the pinnacle of his erotic-urban style, underpinned with excellent technical skills. Newton also worked in portraiture and more fantastical studies. Bookseller Inventory # 000181

Item Description: Phaidon Press Limited, London and New York, 2003. Hardcover. Book Condition: Fine. Dust Jacket Condition: Very Good. 1st. 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.

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.

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.

Item Description: Random House USA Inc, United States, 2015. Hardback. Book Condition: New. 236 x 152 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. The New York Times Book Review As light and refreshing as an ice cream cone from the legendary Berthillon, My Paris Dream evokes the sights, sounds, smells and styles of 1980s Paris. USA Today My Paris Dream is awesome. Man Repeller What was Bett s Paris dream? Her dream was her awakening, [which] is elegantly chronicled in these pages. The Daily Beast For those who are interested in the men and women involved in haute couture, Betts reminiscences will be a delight. Kirkus Reviews Full of slangy French, delectable food and swoon-worthy fashion. BookPage An amazing story of a young woman in Paris trying to break into the fashion business. Sophia Amoruso, author of #GIRLBOSS Kate Betts s story brought me back to my own young self and the journey I made in my case, from a small town in Illinois to New York City. Cindy Crawford.
