Twiggy and Justin

Whiteside, Thomas


1st Edition

Publisher’s half-cloth white boards with multicoulored lettering to spine and black paper sides. Black top stain. Near fine, with just the slightest bumping to extremities. In near fine, slightly toned dust jacket. Laminate crease to front panel. With 14 pages of photographs at rear. Dust jacket photograph by Richard Avedon. *** Contemporary 1960s examination of the Twiggy phenomenon, published at the height of Twiggy-mania in 1968. Written by a British-born journalist for The New Yorker, who followed Twiggy & Justin (her boyfriend and manager at the time) and their entourage around for many days, after they arrived in New York in 1967 to model and promote Twiggy’s fashion line. The book provides a discerning look into the inner workings of the worlds of fashion and mass communications – the expert photographers, the editors and filmmakers, the publicists and Madison Avenue men – all of whom played a part in the almost instant creation of a celebrity and her transformation into a multi-million dollar business. The book was only ever published in the US, with no equivalent UK edition.
