Dammit! I was at H & E yesterday, but blew through and didn't see that
book, which I've been wanting to pick up for quite a while. (Have to head
back down there.)

Though I'm not a huge fan of fashion photography, Bailey's stuff I like a
lot, particularly the work in that book. I believe it was on the David
Bailey of that period that Antonioni based the main character of "Blow Up,"
or so they say.

Thanks for the tip.
