"Among the masters of fashion photography Lillian Bassman reigns today as the doyenne, one of the last great women photographers of the postwar period. This monograph o Bassman's legendary work - the first ever published - presents the romantic, experimental visions, seem mostly in Harper's Bazaar, that brought a sophisticated new aesthetic to print photography."--the publisher
