A Very British Glamour. It's a lavish look at the work of Norman Parkinson, whose scintillatingly creative, four-decade career spanned and shaped the evolution of the fashion shoot.
"Parks," who was a sartorial delight in his own right, worked with beauties ranging from Carmen Dell'Orefice (often called the first supermodel); to his own beloved wife and muse, Wenda; to Appollonia van Ravenstein and a young Jerry Hall. With clothes, poses, and locations to die for, it's a must for all lovers of haute couture and feminine pulchritude.
The four images above, which are in the book, come from the Norman Parkinson Archive's website.
