Polka Dot Parade: A Book about Bill Cunningham

by Deborah Blumenthal
Price: $14.39/ea — List price: $17.99
Hardcover
Limit 50

This is a moving and impassioned picture book about the iconic fashion photographer Bill Cunningham that will inspire young readers to go discover their own ideas of beauty and embolden the world with their own creativity!


He found "sheer poetry"
in the drape of an evening dress,
delight
in the swoosh of a knife-pleated skirt,
and sartorial splendor
in Jazz Age garb.

Every day, Bill Cunningham pedaled his bike through New York City searching for beauty. As he took picture after picture, Bill found beauty not in people, but in their clothes. Drawn to bold and creative choices, Bill's photos captured the attention of the New York Times. He traveled to Paris for Fashion Week, and admiration for his work grew. With his sense of creativity and daringness, his own personal style of photography came to be known as street art photography.

His photos left a lasting impression on all those who came across his work and they continue to inspire creativity today. This is the story of the legend who created street fashion photography and left behind a legacy of glorious pictures. Bill Cunningham used his passion and talent to capture the beauty he saw in fashion and the ultimate freedom that it represents to each and every person.

This is an inspiring picture book about finding your path and being creative.


“Masha’s vivid watercolor work brings Bill’s photos to life. A stunning marriage of two forms of art. The eyes are on a holiday. Well done!”
—Eric Carle

"Bill Cunningham was a New York treasure and the most beloved photographer and quirky personality in the fashion business. I am so glad Deborah and Masha created this whimsical storybook, exposing our Bill to whole new audience. I miss you, Bill."
—Fern Mallis, Creator of New York Fashion Week

"This book is really good! Keep up the good work!"
—Giovanna Battaglia
