When the folks who brought us The Art Book, an alphabetical catalogue of new and old masters, came up with The Fashion Book, an alphabetical catalogue of new and old fashion fixtures, the thread set was thrilled...this week a clever pocket version really a photographic crib sheet on designers, shoe gurus, models, and even unwitting fashion icons makes its debut.
