Giveaway!

I am pleased to be giving away a gorgeous hardcover book entitled Women. It chronicles the work of Lillian Bassman, a beloved fashion photographer. Most of the images were taken in New York during the '50s and '60s. Some of the photographs have never before been published, and others have not been seen since they first appeared on the pages of Harper's Bazaar. 




It's the perfect coffee table book for the lover of fashion, art and photography. To enter, please leave a comment on this post. One comment per person, please. Open to readers in the US and Canada. You have until next Monday, November 23rd at 11:00 PM Central. A winner will be chosen randomly and announced on the 24th. Good luck!

little vel said...

I have been a photographer for about two years now & my biggest inspiration is Lillian Bassman. From the moment I saw her work, I fell in love & she inspired me do photography. Her work literally takes my breath away!! This book would mean so much to me & would be brilliant in my photography office. Thank you for the opportunity!

lily boyce said...

What a fabulous book to own! Lillian is a wonderful photographer, and this looks like its been put together quite well. Perfect addition to any home (like mine!)

gina said...

I'd love to have that book!

Tiffany S. said...

Wow this is an amazing giveaway! I'm a fashion photographer and a student, so I can't afford beautiful inspirational coffee table books. Lillian Bassman is one my biggest inspirations because firstly she's amazing and secondly because it is so hard for women to get into fashion.

Sara said...

I would love to win! Thanks so much for the offer.

Naomi said...

glorisa said...

Thanks for the giveaway Katy. I love vintage fashion and wish this type of classic style would come back.

Jessica Joan said...

Oh girl. Love it!

R. Crosse Squire said...

I have done a little research on Lillian Bassman in the past while working on a fashion show with 1950's influence but never came upon this book, I know more about her painting career. It looks magnificent.

MMA NYC said...

i'd love the book..

Cambria said...

I adore fashion, art, photography and dance--and these pictures are all four! So artistic, so high fashion, and the kind of image that seems to be choreography across the page <3

sfordinarygirl said...

I'd really love to win this book. Judging from the excerpt written by legendary fashion reporter Cathy Horyn I know it'll be a must-covet.

The Daily Fashionista said...

Who doesn't love a good coffee table book. I have plenty but I change them out every so often. This would be a great addition!

Shmashion said...

I think I'd take that baby and sleep with it under my pillow so the fashion would seep into my subconscious!

The '50s and '60s are such a refreshing era to be looking at when so much focus in fashion right now is on the garish '80s. Awesome book!
