FINLAYSON, Iain. Denim: An American Legend.
(New York): Simon & Schuster, 1990. First edition. Large format paperback. Records the changing face of denim in a witty text by fashion journalist Finlayson and an outstanding gallery of black and white and duotone photographs ranging from classic portraits by Walter Evans and Henri Cartier-Bresson, to state of the art design ads by Bruce Weber and Richard Avedon. This is denim in all its incarnations –on the street, on the screen, in advertisement – from the dusty overalls of the Depression Years, through the crotch-hugging, cleavage-creasing garments of yesterday’s pin-ups, to the hunky, hustler look. A fine copy in glossy wrappers with French flaps.
