With a cover designed by Vivienne Westwood, couture meets the crown in this sumptuous Art Edition of Her Majesty, a photographic tribute to Queen Elizabeth II like no other. Hundreds of luminous pictures from the likes of Annie Leibovitz and Cecil Beaton capture the Queen in all the glamour, politics, travel, and tradition of her long and illustrious reign, from royal weddings to international tours.
This limited Art Edition of Her Majesty, with cover by Vivienne Westwood, is a handcrafted couture collector’s item. Featuring a design referencing the Queen’s reign, Great Britain, and Vivienne’s own Gold Label collection, the cover is embellished with a drawing of the Star of the Noble Order of the Garter, hand-stitched with silver metallic thread. The book is also encased in an elegant mother of pearl clamshell box. The understated white of the box has been designed to contrast against the resolute color palette of the book inside.
