Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book is simpley amazing. I love the set up of it. It starts out with an overveiw on Twiggy's rise to fame, then goes into a list style sequence of paragraphs recalling photographers that have shot Twiggy, and her own words of each photographer. Then there is a large section of photos that show each photographers shot/shots. Twards the end there is a time-line of her carreer with fun family photos and photos of different Twiggy memorabilia. Overall this is a stunning book about an amazingly unique woman. Its not just a Bio/Auto, but more of a personal look into a life that is full of wonder and amazement. I would most definitely recommend this book for any Twiggy fan/lover.
