"What fascinates me is character. Each person brings a history to their hair." Presentation copy, first edition of leading British hair stylist Guido Palau’s second monograph, double-inscribed to Vogue fashion director Tonne Goodman to half-title and title pages by Palau and by photographer David Sims. Known for his highly inventive and radically expressive styles, the pioneering Palau quickly made a name for himself for his now-signature unstructured cuts. This collection comprises over seventy headshots of inventive coiffures Palau produced specifically for this book shot by his longtime friend and frequent collaborator Sims. Lavishly illustrated with color plates; with a preface by curator Andrew Bolton and an interview with Palau by fashion journalist Tim Blanks. Book designed by acclaimed art director Abbott Miller. Some light staining to boards. Near fine. A lovely inscribed-association copy. Item #6797
