today Sep 23, 2015
First published in 2002, the book celebrating Vogue's Creative Director Grace Coddington's first 30 years at Vogue UK and US, was an instant hit. However, with a limited print run, it sold out around the world in record speed, with those copies now selling online for up to $10,000, reports Vogue in its September edition.
To give the world the chance the rediscover the volume, Coddington convinced British publishing house Phaidon to reprint the book exactly as it appeared when it was first released, for the more moderate sum of £65/$150/€125. It will thus be re-released on 28 September but can already be pre-ordered online.
The 408-page book not only celebrates the legendary creative director, it "is also a showcase for some of the greatest photographs ever published in British and American Vogue," reads the description on Phaidon's website.
It includes forewords by American Vogue Editor-in-Chief Anna Wintour and designer Karl Lagerfeld as well as personal anecdotes and insider stories of working with photographers Cecil Beaton, Irving Penn, Bruce Weber, Steven Meisel and Mario Testino and fashion-world personalities such as Naomi Campbell, Jerry Hall, Linda Evangelista and Manolo Blahnik.
Vogue also reports that a companion volume of post-2002 material is already planned for next year.
