Format: Paperback
This book, which came out in 1987 at the height of Joan Collins' Dynasty fame, collects photos of her taken over 14-year span from 1972 to 1986 by her preferred personal photographer, Eddie Sanderson. This softcover book was published in England and is a large-format book the size of a magazine, but thicker.

In it we have many wonderful photos of Joan, including candid moments with her family, pictures taken inside the various houses she has owned, and of course many splendid close-ups of the luscious lady herself. Some of the photos are in full colour, while others are in black and white. We have everything from Joan in costume as Cleopatra on her appearance on Fantasy Island, to tasteful gowns, to her fabulous Dynasty wardrobe, to eye-popping bikini shots (*pant, pant*). And she has even been brave enough to include one photo of herself in extreme close-up with no make-up at all in which she looks quite different. Not many actresses would dare that!

There is also an extensive message from Joan describing her participation in the various photo shoots, and another section in which the photographer goes into the details of what he was trying to achieve in certain shots.

This book is a real treasure for Joan Collins fans, and will be a great photographic supplement to her memoirs.

I am happy to highly recommend it to all Joan Collins fans.
