She is one of the most provocative supermodels in history, with a fiery reputation that occasionally precedes her. Therefore, it’s no surprise that Naomi Campbell’s eponymous book has an equally scintillating cover.
The two-volume collector’s edition, scheduled for release in February, will be available in Dallas exclusively at the Taschen Library in The Joule Hotel. It serves as an ode to the model’s inimitable body of work, from magazine editorials to ads for Fendi, Escada, Burberry and Balmain and her history-making images, including those from French Vogue and Time, for which she was the first black cover model.
Naomi Campbell is 868 pages filled with the work of fashion’s finest image-makers (Mario Testino, Ellen von Unwerth, Richard Avedon, Helmut Newton, Patrick Demarchelier, Herb Ritts, Bruce Weber), plus an extensive autobiography and dozens of Campbell’s own never-before-published personal snaps and video stills.
Of the 1,000 signed copies available in the world, The Joule’s Taschen has secured five. Naomi Campbell (Taschen), $1,750, at the Taschen Library in The Joule Hotel, 214.748.1300.
