    Beautiful watercolors. Inspirational. Great text about Bill Cunningham and the New York City fashion world he photographed. A book to buy, keep, and savor.

    A fun introduction to Bill Cunningham for kids.

  • Jennifer

    Fun and fanciful illustrations. Good biographical info--not in a childish, poetic style. Inspiring.

  • Kayla

    If I had known this was a book about a fashion photographer, I might not have bothered, but the illustrations are quite fantastic, and the great thing about picture books is that even with ones that you don’t love it’s hard to feel like you’ve wasted your time. If you’re into fashion and already know who Bill Cunningham was, you’d probably really love this book.
