Words by Françoise Sagan and Federico Fellini
Ridge Press, Random House (1966)
9.5 x 12.5" 

Considered an icon of soft porn and the sexual revolution of the 60s when it was produced, the images are cotton candy sweet. Wingate was the son of a Mayflower family and married to the director of a modeling agency in New York, this book was his opus to beauty and beautiful women.  Yes, indeed. Contributions by Francoise Sagan, an incredible woman and the author of numbers romantic texts, the most well known one being " Bonjour Tristesse" which she wrote when she was a teenager, brings the book a certain credibility. Fellini, well, we all know, remember "City of Women", Marcello! I do understand when this book was created it was part of the #Metoo movement at the time. Yet, I am parting with this one although it is special. I n good condition except for the cover which has some minor issues. 
Sorry! Sold out!
