The Kate Moss Book: 8 Covers

 The Kate Moss Book: 8 Covers

I  have a Kate Moss book, it’s softcover and was purchased at a Brooklyn stoop sale for a few dollars many years ago. It’s called Kate: The Kate Moss Book (which now I’m seeing on Amazon has some decent worth!), but now there is a new and different one, called The Kate Moss Book, published by Rizzoli and available for pre-order for $52.47 on Amazon.

It’s basically a book of Kate Moss photos, and is offered with eight different covers, shot by Mario Testino, Corinne Day, Inez & Vinoodh, Craig McDean, Mert & Marcus, David Sims, Mario Sorrenti, and Juergen Teller. FYI: they will be shipped at random–no picking allowed!  See the other seven covers on the next page.

P.S. Now that I’ve pulled my Kate Moss book out, I’m reminded it  includes a forward written by Moss in 1995, in which she writes about being labeled “viciously by the majority of the media.” She ends by saying she’s off to “eat a massive steak and loads of very fattening potatoes, with loads of butter.” All of which of course refer to the insane beating she took as the face of “Heroin Chic.” Her ability to come out of that pile on says a lot about her survival skills, which in part must have contributed to the unusually long length of her career.

Definitely adding this to our collection, the Rick Owens book published with Rizzoli is here:

This luxurious large-format book documents the work of the American designer Rick Owens, a transformational figure in contemporary fashion. Defiantly antifashion, Rick Owens’s honest and intensely personal approach to craft has ironically produced some of the most sublime fashion of the last two decades, propelling him to the front ranks of the international avant-garde. Established in 1994, Owens’s subversive designs have now become some of the most critically admired in the Paris collections. Distinguished by an aesthetic that the designer has himself described as “grunge meets glamour,” this gritty elegance-tempered by a remarkable restraint-has won him a fanatical international following…
