A wonderfully told and illustrated life sketch of the inimitable Gordon Conway, "That Red Head Gal". Conway is a little known, but extremely talented fashion artist and designer from the early 20th century (Worked 1916-1936). Those interested in 1920's fashion and design history should consider including this fine volume in their library today.

I'm using this book as one of the models of research methodology for my thesis. It's a very nice look at the career of a prolific illustrator. Intriguing to read and well written. If you're looking for a thorough examination of the career of a woman involved in the fashion world (as I was), you'll enjoy this book.

Format: Hardcover
This is an indepth look into the life and times of a woman who was immensely talented. It is written by an author who obviously takes great pride in her subject and is quite thourough in her presentation of her subject. It would be a fascinating A&E special.
