Edith Head

Some great coverage of Running Press’s tome (it’s a hefty coffee table book) on Edith Head, called — appropriately enough — EDITH HEAD.  Nathalie Aktinson wrote about the book in her National Post column, with the front-page headline The Answer to  ‘Who was Grace Kelly Wearing?’:  With a name like that, it didn’t take very long for a certain quip to make its way around the film studio lot:  ‘Edith Head gives good wardrobe. ‘ Jay Jorgensen’s hefty coffee-table book Edith Head (Running Press, $90) covers this lore and some of the same terrain that film historian David Chierichetti did in his 2003 biography of the costume designer. But Jorgensen does so with plentiful pages of wardrobe test shots, costume sketches and stills, and that makes all the difference.

The book was also featured in The Globe and Mail’s Style pages.
