Cecil Beaton (1904-1980) was a tirelessly busy man whose career included theater and film design, writing, arbitrating taste to London's High Bohemia, and gardening in his country estate. However, it was as a photographer that Beaton achieved immortality. This opulently produced monograph is the first comprehensive presentation of his work. 265 duotone & color photos.
