THE BEST OF BEATON with introduction by Truman Capote
"To call it a book, "The Best of Beaton" is catchy enough, but inaccurate - unless some one book could contain, as this cannot, five specimens of Beaton's many facets: his stage designs, his costume designs, sketches and paintings, pages reprinted from his very remarkable journals, and at least several verbatim examples of his conversational gifts, for surely Cecil is one of the few surviving artists in this increasingly obsolete area. The present volume limits itself to the best of Beaton's accomplishments in his most famous guise: Photographer."
