Well Read: Posing Beauty

There is a new book out, just in time for Christmas, called Posing Beauty.  Aimed at presenting a definitive look at African-American beauty - this is one book that will be on my holiday wishlist (hint, hint ; )   The NY Times review makes me want this book even more:

"In the pages of “Posing Beauty,” readers can appreciate African-American men and women as dandies and debutantes, models and beauty queens, politicians and clubwomen across the generations. The book is a treasure, a triumph and a singular achievement that invites fresh and enduring insights with each viewing."

As I research fashion related topics - I am always discouraged to find the lack of African-American images in the vintage fashion arena.  So, this book will be a good first step in showcasing the stylish men and women of the past decades.  I want to see more images such as these: (Photographer: Carl Van Vecten - Eartha Kitt, Leontyne Price, and Blanche Dunn)
