So this weekend is the big Alexandra Palace Antiques, Collectors, Art Deco and 20th Century fair (now with a vintage market as well!).
Matt ArtPix and Arcane Publishing will be setting up on Saturday and will make sure our double stall stands out. Fingers crossed we have enough space for the shelves! Here are some of the books we'll be selling:
Yves St Laurent by Yves St Laurent
This wonderful book was published on the occasion of the exhibition "Yves Saint Laurent: 28 années de création," held 30 May to 26 October 1986, at the Musée des Arts de la Mode in Paris.
Illustrated throughout with photographic images of Laurent's clothes, as well as reproductions of his sketches. Preface by Bernard-Henri Levy. Commentaries by Hélène de Turckheim.
Mark Booth's 1983 book Camp is a reference in the genre!
In the book, camp is defined as "to present oneself as being committed to the marginal with a commitment greater than the marginal merits."
A really lovely book for anyone interested in the Camp aesthetics and the history of entertainment.
The first paperback edition of Tony Crawley's 1974 book, The Films of Sophia Loren, with hundreds of photos, some rare!
This 1976 book features some absolutely gorgeous vintage fashion illustrations!
Folies-Bergères souvenir programme (1955)
Featuring:Benny Hill, Tommy Cooper, Claudine Céréda, Vicki and Fredi, Barbara Elevera, Jeremy Hawke, Ganjou Brothers and Juanita, Ilona Adams, Marqueez, Johnny Keoni, Morlidor Trio and the Folies-Bergères girls!
Black Dance by Edward Thorpe (1989)
From Amazon: "This is a study of Black dance from its origins in Africa, in the slave songs and dances of the Caribbean and the American South through the minstrel shows and burlesque theatres of the 1980s and 90s. It includes its development under the impact of jazz and its invasion of Broadway and Hollywood as well as its integration with classical ballet and modern dance."
We will also be selling some French import CDs, pop and classical music, 60s and 70s (a few singles and some LPs).
And last but not least, we will have some copies of I Am a Muse and will be giving out flyers/bookmarks!
