In 1968 Barbara Hulanicki launched the first of her new-look BIBA catalogues. There were six in total and each one featured a different model and a different photographer (although Hans Feurer shot two). The catalogues were designed by John McConnell and featured the new art nouveau-inspired BIBA logo. Its elongated shape was specially designed to fit through the letter box. Each issue represented a complete collection designed by Hulanicki which was available through mail-order only. It was the first time that the complete BIBA look was captured and presented through photography. This present catalogue was shot by Harri Peccinotti (art director of Nova). It features the model Elizabeth Bjorn Neilson.
