‘A superb retrospective … Donovan is a “great”.… Just when you thought there could not possibly be space for another fashion book rooted in the 1960s, this one proves rather compelling.… The heavy paper and high quality reproduction rewards the viewer … a handsome posthumous monograph.’ -Observer
‘Make no mistake: This flawless volume is a love letter and a paean to a brilliant photographer … [a] rare opportunity to see what can only be deemed as a brilliant collection of timeless and classic photos of a caliber that is steadily dwindling … what a beautiful body of work. Mr Donovan left behind for us all to appreciate.’ -New York Journal of Books
‘Terence Donovan’s influence on fashion photography – and visual culture in general – can’t be underestimated.… Ushering in an era of experimentation and adventurousness, Donovan worked hard, combining huge technical proficiency and rigorous professionalism with a larger than life character. This monograph is the first full collection of his fashion work.’ -Wallpaper*
