Books Gift Guide | Grace Coddington's The Grace Collection

For the first time, former model and the creative director at large of American Vogue magazine, Grace Coddinton's collective works have been assembled into two new books, The Grace Collection
"Encompassing a reissued Grace: Thirty Years of Fashion at Vogue, and the new Grace: The American Vogue Years, the two provide an intimate look at the life of a fashion icon and stylist, who in concert with some of the world’s greatest photographers has given us images of unprecedented complexity and drama."
Sometimes I think we will look back on blogs as fondly as she does on print magazines. Coddington's new archive makes the perfect gift for anyone with an interest in the culture of fashion and its' photography.

Check out this short video with Grace as she defines a great photograph and looks back at an important era in print and fashion. The Grace Collection is available as a set through Indigo.

Stay tuned for more a more extensive Book Gift Guide soon.

She is so inspiring. I completely understand what she means about editing.
Unfortunately in the run-up to Christmas, I feel as if too many blogs have turned into nonstop commercials. They are all hawking the same stuff from the same sponsors. I hope that post-holidays they will return to delivering quirky, unique content.
