The world's most photographed by Robin Muir( Book )
7 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 271 libraries worldwide
"The World's Most Photographed explores the photographic image of ten of the best-known faces of modern history. By unearthing photographs that have previously been lost or suppressed, author Robin Muir demonstrates not only how the public image of each subject was manipulated, but he also gives fresh insights into their personalities and lives. The ten selected personalities range from a crowned head of state to a world-beating boxer, from film stars to a fascist dictator. Illustrated with over 180 photographs, the book creates a compelling new perspective on the history of celebrity, notoriety and the nature of iconography."--Jacket

John Deakin : photographs by John Deakin( Book )
13 editions published in 1996 in English and Undetermined and held by 249 libraries worldwide
His clarity of vision had a merciless, often brutal directness and a psychological intensity, both fascinating and shocking in equal measure. Whether he was photographing writers, artists, fashion models, or Hollywood stars for British Vogue in the late 1940s and early 1950s (where he achieved notoriety for being fired twice) or whether portraying his artist and poet friends in London's bohemia, Soho, he made no concessions whatever to his subjects' vanity, scorning any need for admiration in his pursuit of truthful depiction. After several years of research, Robin Muir, former picture editor of British Vogue, has now brought together a comprehensive collection of Deakin's most important photographs

Vogue 100 : a century of style by Robin Muir( Book )
8 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 173 libraries worldwide
While principally a fashion magazine, Vogue has never been just that. It has assumed a central and vital role on the cultural stage, with a history that spans the most inventive decades in fashion and taste, and in the arts and society. Published to mark the magazine's centenary, and accompanying a major exhibition, this book celebrates the twentieth century and beyond with an authoritative and discriminating eye. In more than 2,000 issues, British Vogue has acted as a cultural barometer, putting fashion in the context of the wider world; how we dress, how we entertain, what we eat, listen to, watch, who leads us, excites us and inspires us. The century's most talented photographers, Lee Miller,Norman Parkinson, Cecil Beaton, Irving Penn, David Bailey, Snowdon and Mario Testino among them, have contributed to it.In 1916, when the First World War made transatlantic shipments of American Vogue impossible, its proprietor, Condé Nast, authorised a British edition. It was an immediate success, and over the following ten decades of uninterrupted publication continued to mirror its time; the austerity and optimism that followed two world wars; Swinging London; scene of the sixties, the radical seventies, the image-conscious eighties; and inits second century remains at the cutting edge of photography and design. Decade by decade, Vogue 100 celebrates the greatest moments in fashion, beauty and portrait photography. Illustrated throughout with well-known images, as well as the less familiar, the book focuses on the faces that shaped the cultural landscape: from Matisse to Bacon, Freud and Hirst, from Dietrich to Paltrow, from Rudolph Valentino to David Beckham, fromLady Diana Cooper to Lady Diana Spencer. It features the fashion designers who defined the century ; Chanel, Saint Laurent, McQueen; and explores more broadly the changing form of the twentieth-century woman.

Vernier : fashion, femininity & form by Eugène Vernier( Book )
3 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 114 libraries worldwide
Featuring more than one hundred of Vernier's own favorite photographs drawn from Vogue's extensive photo archive, this lavishly illustrated volume reveals remarkable innovation in the use of props, backdrops, and location. Whether he was photographing his subjects by the sea, with a canine companion, or perfectly positioned atop a pale pink convertible, Vernier's careful composition enhanced the essence of his subject. Vernier shot mostly in black-and-white, and his trademark "look" is one of classic femininity. He sought to capture models when they were relaxed, enjoying the clothing, and confident that their photographer would show both only at their best. Providing commentary on the photographs are fashion history expert Becky Conekin and Vogue historian Robin Muir. This is first book to focus on Vernier's work at Vogue and it allows readers a rare glimpse of his inimitable blend of technical excellence and an eye for experimentation
Arcadia Britannica : a modern British folklore portrait : [with] 125 colour photographs by Henry Bourne( Book )
3 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 101 libraries worldwide
Folklore is a living cultural heritage. Folk beliefs, customs, and expressions link the past to the present and help us understand our specific cultures, as well as a shared humanity. Founded on pagan Celtic, Germanic and early Christian roots, British folklore, far from being a quaint anachronism, remains vibrant and relevant by adapting to new circumstances, with the folk (people), and the lore (stories) continually informing and influencing each other. Henry Bournes folklore portraits, shot in the wild at key events and festivals, take an affectionate look at the people from Morris dancers to practising witches and warlocks who shy away from a world increasingly disconnected from nature and those who actively celebrate a rich tradition that honours our connection with the seasons, the land and community
Under the influence : John Deakin, photography and the lure of Soho by Robin Muir( Book )
5 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 98 libraries worldwide
Considered to be one of the greatest of postwar British photographers, Deakin was renowned for his penetrating portraits, haunting street scenes and striking fashion work. Though he flourished briefly at Vogue, it was the lure of nearby Soho with its pubs, clubs and subterranean watering holes that captured his interest most. Loved and loathed in equal measure by friends and drinking companions, Deakin was a legendary member of the quarter's maverick crowd of artists, writers, poets and assorted characters and misfits. As its most famous chronicler with a camera, he is inextricably linked to Soho's bohemian heyday in the two decades following the War. Exhibition: Photographer's Gallery, London, UK (11.04-13.07.2014)
