Edith Head - Hardcover

$80.00 $95.00

"What a costume designer does is a cross between magic and camouflage. We create the illusion of changing the actors into what they are not. We ask the public to believe that every time they see a performer on the screen, he's become a different person." - Edith Head

Nearly every iconic film in the last century had one thing in common: Edith Head.

With over 400 films to her credit, Edith Head ruled the Costume Design departments at Paramount and Universal Studios for nearly six decades, garnering thirty-five Oscar nominations and winning eight.

This thoroughly researched and masterfully produced book is a sleek and sophisticated portrait of the most influential costume designer of the 20th century.
