7 Harrison, Martin Appearances: Fashion Photography Since 1945 (First Edition)
New York Rizzoli 1991 0847813711 / 9780847813711 First Edition Hardcover Near Fine Very Good + Hardcover Illustrated 
A study of fashion photography since 1945. It places fashion photography in the main stream of popular culture and it links the imagery to the art of photography itself by drawing on such influential figures as Robert Frank and Walker Evans. It also charts the rise of the magazines and the influence of the great art directors and editors of the time. The book and accompanying exhibition at the Victoria and Albert Museum have been prepared with the full participation of the leading figures in the field, from Richard Avedon and Irving Penn to Bruce Weber. Its conclusion at the start of the Nineties is that there is no longer a distinctive form of fashion photography; there is simply photography. Charcoal blind-stamped cloth with gold lettering on spine. Textured end papers. Illustrated. 312pp. Full refund if not satisfied.

A whimsical array of ghosts and goblins, spooks and skeletons, vamps and vampires parade through this unparalleled collection of more than 100 years of American Halloween attire. From Little Bo Peep with lamb in hand to beatniks and pirates, from monsters and witches to clowns and animals, this veritable "carnival" of costumes visually captures All Hallows' Eve like no other book before. In her celebration of Halloween revelry, photographer Phyllis Galembo never settles for the ordinary; here instead are evocative scenes of dressed-to-scare young trick-or-treaters "modeling" their disguises, of undead spirits haunting their surroundings, and of costumes spanning over a century that take on an eerie new creepiness thanks to special lighting effects. Accompanying the costume shots is a history of this always-popular holiday and an essay placing the work in the wider context of fashion and costume. Of interest to enthusiasts, designers, and students alike, this devilishly diverting book is the perfect gift for all Halloween aficionados. New copy. Illustrated. Solid copy. 127pp. Full refund if not satisfied.
