"This book, containing more than 400 images from four decades, is a moody, monochrome fashion delight." "Throughout the book's 400-plus pages, the affection Lindbergh has always had for his subjects is constantly apparent. His photos have always favored personality over polish; and his ultimate concern is how his models and actresses themselves wish to be portrayed."
