5.0 étoiles sur 5Lovely memories of "Issy"29 septembre 2010
Par T. Beasley - Publié sur Amazon.com
This book is presented as a collection of letters written to Isabella Blow, after her death, by many who were fortunate to have the opourtunity to work with, and know her. She has always been a fascinating personality, and I just hate that she had to die, for such admiration to finally find it's way to print... Still, I am greedy for the number of books coming out just now about her, as she was a truly remarkable creature! This book contains photos, illustrations, impressions, images of Isabella from those who lucky enough to find themselves, at some point, in her orbit. Many are famous and their names familiar. Others, persons of interest, that I found myself "Google-ing" to learn more about. So many photos I had never seen, and I've been an "Issy info stalker" for quite some time. Beautiful oversized volume, great photos, lovely sentiments... I just wish Issy was here to see it!

Par Ria Darling - Publié sur Amazon.com
I bought both this and the book by Detmar Blow and of the two I think I prefer this one, mainly because it is objective and his, while very well written and with wonderful photos, doesn't really say much this one doesn't. However, I read this one first so that might be it as well. Rink does fantastic research and puts the story together well, and I don't think it's an easy story to put together with Isabella's manic behaviour. On the whole I would suggest getting both books to get the total feel for her life but to read this one first because it will provide some background and objectivity that I don't think the other has. Both have great (and different) photos of Isabella. What a loss-she was amazing.

5.0 étoiles sur 5A Great Gift for the Hat Enthusiast or Milliner in Your Life9 janvier 2011
Par cbstanton322 - Publié sur Amazon.com
I bought this book for a friend for Christmas and she just loves it. We took private millinery classes together for a year with Jill Pfieffer in Los Angeles and learned about French Room techniques as well as hearing about the icons and advocates of this disappearing craft. I had never even heard of Isabella Blow, or of her influence on modern millinery, before Jill and my friend told me about her. Additionally, my friend treasures this book because she feels it is a very beautiful tribute to this unique and very inspirational woman.

This coffee table style book is a compilation of notes written posthumously to or about Isabella. Cute and fun. Love the photos.
