A Visual Feast

Yesterday, with heroic efforts (due to the adverse arctic weather conditions) Mr Postman delivered another breathtaking book. 

Lillian B 1

Lillian Bassman: Women by Deborah Solomon has now officially been taken off my never ending wish list on Amazon. 

I was relatively familiar with her work. But to have so many of her masterpieces collected in one astonishing book, is simply a visual feast and a 'must have' for anyone who appreciates fashion photography at its best.

My heart rate has increased considerably since its arrival.

Let the images speak for themselves...

These are purely breathtaking. Maybe there is something better than beginning a morning with beauty but I don’t think so. Coffee and beauty, divine gifts.

Swoon! They have a very painterly quality.

I adore her. Love her work and, more importantly, love that she continues to do it at 93.
