Very good; the stitching of the page binding is starting to loosen.The photographer William Klein has put together this collection of fashion-based photographs from images shot over a thirty year period. The book starts with fashion spreads taken from Vogue magazine. Klein begins working in Paris and Rome in the late 1950s, early 1960s and then moves on to New York in the 70s and 80s. The next section deals with Outside, where he trains his camera lens on the characters, costumes and issues of the world outside. Films contains drawings and stills from Klein's films where the costumes were part of the message and Backstage goes behind the scenes of the shows.
