Beaton in The Sixties
The Cecil Beaton Diaries 1965-1969
New York: Knopf, 2003. First printing, thus.
This is the second selection from the uncensored version of Beaton's extravagant romp through the worlds of society, Royalty, art and the theater, with a backdrop of the swinging sixties.
Introduced by Hugo Vickers, who had compiled Beaton's authorized biography, this whirlwind account by a "self-created genius" is about as fascinating as any life could hope to be.
Perfect hardcover. 522 pages.
