The art of the Scrapbook: Cecil Beaton

Cecil Beaton; having worked with the likes of Grace Kelly and the British Royal family and featured in Vogue and Vanity fair throughout his career can indefinitely be described as one of the most important and influential photographers of all time.

After becoming so familiar with his work, through the sheer vastness as well as through his influence on others, it is now that we get a real insight into Beaton as a man. Throughout his life the famed photographer scrap-booked everything from cinema stubs to articles and images that appealed to him.

These pages have been scoured with the most important pages plucked out for us to enjoy. These will then be featured in the new release of Cecil Beaton: The art of the Scrapbook giving an unheard insight into a genius. The book will be sold for £170 at specialised stores.

Heres a little sneak peek.....
