Terry O’Neill is one of Britain’s greatest photographers. He has selected a range of vintage prints from his extensive archive, many of which have never been seen before. Unlike many photographers in the age of physical prints he kept as many as he could, unaware that in fifty years they would be a valuable record of the times. These images include The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, Faye Dunaway, Robert Redford and, of course, David Bowie, to name but a few.
The magnificent deluxe edition is limited to 300 copies. Packaged in a slip case, each one includes a signed letter of authenticity and an artist stamped print of a rare outtake of Faye Dunaway from the iconic The Morning After shoot. This edition is a bookstore-exclusive to Hatchards.

Most people at the Marquee Club in October 1973 did not realise that it would be the last performance David Bowie would give as Ziggy Stardust. Terry O’Neill was given unprecedented access to document the event both on and behind stage and captures the spectacular costumes as well as Marianne Faithful and a host of other stars. Memories from key contributors and fans complete the picture of this extraordinary event.
Dior’s New Look, which was launched in 1947, reinvented fashion for a war-weary world. But before he dreamed of dresses, Dior envisaged houses; the new interiors of Victor Grandpierre and Georges Geffroy that he commissioned perfectly flattered his fashions. Their designs for Dior, and also Yves Saint Laurent, the Rothschilds, Maria Callas and many others, are discussed and displayed here with almost two hundred sumptuous illustrations.

David Bailey worked on two fashion shoots in Peru – the first in the sixties, the second in the late eighties. He was captivated by the natural beauty of the country and its people and, once the fashion shots were done, he headed off into the countryside. In colour and black-and-white, these photographs include lost landscapes, remarkable portraits and spectacular fashion imagery. A unique mixing of worlds.
Don McCullen’s landscapes are often unsettling. In this remarkable collection of photographs he captures both approaching storms and flooded lowlands near his home in Somerset and the glories and destruction of the great city of Palmyra.
The collector is Sergei Shchukin, a nineteenth-century textile merchant with a great eye for beauty. He was the first collector to conceive a Museum of Modern Art and his collection, which included Impressionists and Post-Impressionists, was seen as revolutionary at the time, inspiring awe and ridicule in equal measure. This is the first time his story has been available in English.
Eric Ravilious regarded his scrapbooks as working tools and the authors have made it possible to understand their development and the way the artist used and reinvented motifs and patterns throughout his working life. With over a hundred and seventy images this is an ideal companion to the authors’ earlier Edward Bawden Scrapbooks.
