9780762438051: Edith Head: The Fifty-Year Career of Hollywood's Greatest Costume Designer
Review:

The Independent (UK), 10/4/10 "There's fierce, and there's Edith Head. The name to drop in the golden age of Hollywood, Head was wardrobe consultant on Rear Window and All About Eve, to name a couple of classics. This stunning new book chronicles her 50-year career with sketches and archive material." Harper's Bazaar, October 2010 "It's a must-have book for connoisseurs of fashion and film alike." Donna Marie Smith, Palm Beach Cty. Lib. Syst., FL- Library Journal's Xpress Review 10/29/10 "The golden age of Hollywood sparkled with glamorous stars and extravagant cinematic productions. Costume designer Edith Head won five Oscars and epitomized-along with actors she clothed such as Barbara Stanwyck, Grace Kelly, and Audrey Hepburn-the star quality of these heady days. Jorgensen (editor, Peterson's Photographic magazine) captures a behind-the-scenes look at the world and work of this dedicated, prolific artist. He includes background information and gorgeous color photographs and illustrations of the costumes she meticulously designed. While incorporating biographical information about Head, Jorgensen focuses primarily on the clothes, which perfectly personified the characters in films like All About Eve, Roman Holiday, and Sunset Boulevard. Verdict For fans of classic Hollywood movies and students of fashion, photography, and film. Those who want a more in-depth look at the personal life of this iconic Hollywood figure should read David Chierichetti's Edith Head: The Life and Times of Hollywood's Celebrated Costume Designer. BookPage, December 2010 "...scrupulously researched and handsomely assembled work... Filled with pithy anecdotes and never-before-seen sketches, Edith Head is the book for the costume design enthusiast. InStyle Australia December 2010 "This lust-have new tome reveals the story behind the costumes." Tucson Citizen's Shelf Life, 12/8/10 "In this beautifully executed book filled with more than 350 images, Head's work is documented and put into historical context providing readers with a rare behind-the-scenes look at how Hollywood design evolved. This is a fascinating book which is a virtual treasure chest of film stills, costume sketches, tests, and even fabric samples. The text by Jay Jorgensen, a longtime editor for Petersen's Photographic magazine and photo editor of Palm Springs Life, adds just the right touch." Antique Trader, 12/30/10 "The anecdotes were so intriguing, I found myself unable to stop turning the pages. ... In addition to the fascinating stories, there are page after page of stunning photos and original Edith Head costume sketches; the book is illustrated with more than 300 large, clear photographs. The large format and heavy, quality paper are a pleasure to behold. It could be classified as a "coffee table" book, but that description seems to fall short, as it offers so much more. And the presentation is attractive right down to the end papers, which are a montage of Edith Head sketches. ... The book has significant entertainment and informational value; anyone who is even remotely interested in Hollywood history, popular culture or fashion will find "Edith Head" worthwhile." Films in Review "The book is a treat. A spectacular repository of on-set pictures of Ms. Head at work, plus her costume designs, and even a recipe for Chicken and Potatoes Casa Ladera (her home in the 50s), we get a full-bodied picture of her career ... fun ... beautiful." Sight & Sound"This spectacular one-of-a-kind book surveys Head's work in words and pictures, bringing together rare, never-before-seen sketches, fabric samples, costume tests and behind-the-scenes photos from the Edith Head archives." Guardian "[Author Jay Jorgensen's] pictures are a revelation. He has excellent images of Head's designs, at their best when based on character rather than dazzle." Rage Monthly "Edith Head: The Fifty-Year Career of Hollywood's Greatest Costume Designer is a beautifully done book. The flow of the chapters, the extensive photos comprised of stars and the costumes alone are quite remarkable and create a fascinating read for Hollywood fashion aficionados." "Jorgensen moves through Head's career almost on a film-by-film basis; the volume is sumptuous, but the text is also well-researched. Together with Chierichetti's biography, the two books will stand as the definitive texts on one of the paradigmatic Hollywood careers."

From the Publisher:

All About Eve. Funny Face. Sunset Blvd. Rear Window. Sabrina. A Place in the Sun. The Ten Commandments. Scores of iconic films of the last century had one thing in common: costume designer Edith Head (1897--1981). She racked up an unprecedented 35 Oscar nods and 400 film credits over the course of a fifty-year career. Never before has the account of Hollywood's most influential designer been so thoroughly revealed--because never before have the Edith Head Archives of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences been tapped. This unprecedented access allows this book to be a one-of-a-kind survey, bringing together a spectacular collection of rare and never-before-seen sketches, costume test shots, behind-the- scenes photos, and ephemera.
