The original title of the book: Lillian Bassman: Women

With more than 200 of her best images reproduced in stunning tritone, including many never published before and others not seen since they appeared in the pages of the legendary "Harper's Bazaar" of the 1950s, "Lillian Bassman: Women" offers a retrospective view of an extraordinary career in photography. At 91 and still hard at work, Bassman is a beloved figure in the pantheon of fashion photographers. Her signature style, once described by Richard Avedon as making 'visible that heart-breaking invisible place between the appearance and the disappearance of things', offered a sensuous and intimate vision of modern women. Says Judith Thurman, 'Bassman's women - perennially soulful, elusively chic - have the poignancy of an endangered species'. Well-known art writer and journalist Deborah Solomon contributes an introduction. An illustrated chronology gives a cinematic overview of a remarkable life.

Deborah Solomon is the author of Utopia Parkway: The Life and Work of Joseph Cornell and Jackson Pollock: A Biography. She writes the weekly 'Questions For' column in the New York Times Magazine, where she is also known for her profiles of people in the art world. Previously, she was art critic for the Wall Street Journal. She lives in New York City.

    Lillian Bassman's photographs are a 'one-off' in her unique, personal style and beautiful evocation of not only the sophisticated women and their dresses of New York/Paris of the 50's and 60's but also of this iconic period in the history of two of the world's greatest cities. Many of the images are infused with a softness of form and quasi-abstract background, this renders them with her very personal and beautiful vision; however, they are timeless and of universal appeal. This is great work, up there with the very best of today alongside Nick Night, Paolo Roversi and others, but non-the-less very, very Lillian Bassman! See examples provided.

    Lillian Bassmann is in a class of her own. These are not just fashion shots, they are fabulous artistic creations, some so impressionistic that they are almost abstract. They are full glamour and mystery, sometimes only hinting at the details of the clothes being modelled. I can't think of any other photographer who has done anything similar - this is an absolute must-have, even if (like me) you have little interest in fashion!

    I gave this to my girlfriend for Christmas and she absolutely loved it. This book is beautifully produced and and real treat for anybody into interesting images or historic fashion photography.I can't believe Lillian Bassman isn't more of a household name since so many of her photographs are such ethereal timeless classics.

    This is a high quality 26cm x 34cm book with around 200 full (single) page photographs, no borders. Wall to wall photographs. This is the missing link between art and photography. Bassman actuall painted her large format negatives to achieve this unique style, but there's more going on to get these prints... still trying to work out what it is. The photographs are on every page so you might want to buy two copies, because you'll want every single shot up on your wall.
