RUSSELL, Ken. Teddy Girls.

(No place): Happy Dancer, 2020.  First edition.  Small square quarto.  Unpaginated.  Cool little book publishing for the first time, Russell’s photographs of London’s Teddy Girls who like that of the Teddy Boys, grew out of a trend for Edwardian influenced fashion in post-World War II London.  Russell’s images pay testament to their supreme style as well as the ingenuity and complexity of their sartorial choices.  An essay by the fashion historian, Mairi MacKenzie, considers the cultural history and context within which these women lived and the photos were taken. A very good copy in sewn wrappers with photo-plate.  Not stated but presumably published in a small limitation.
