Edie Sedgwick's status as an icon is undeniable - her influence in style and beauty is still very apparent. The artist who rose above her rich family's stifling grasp into Andy Warhol's infamous muse is intertwined with tragedy for me, her downward spiral that eventually lead to her death never far from my mind.
In EDIE: GIRL ON FIRE, the author collects quotes and stories into a truly beautiful and poignant portrait of the star. But what really impresses me about the book is the design - filled to the brim with full-page, high quality, glossy pictures of Edie, and sprinkled with dashes of color and incredible typography.
This book is an absolute must have for fans of Edie, fashion, Andy Warhol, and the 1960s in general!
