Some light reading material for the weekend – 100 Years of Fashion Illustration by Cally Blackman. It’s a nice-looking book filled with hundreds of full-colour reproductions of beautiful and not-so-beautiful fashion illustration since 1908 (some above and below). I bought it on Amazon last year but hadn’t had a chance to look at it until recently, when I discovered my marked preference for fashions of the 40s, 50s and 60s. ‘Reading’ an illustrated book reminded me of the hours I spent poring over my Starlight Express tour book circa 1986. A musical on rollerskates – pure genius… and apparently still the most popular musical in Germany.
