Rare indeed

This is a must see - must have.
Eric Boman's catalogue of the exhibition of accessorised ensembles from the wardrobe of Iris Apfel. I should imagine not since Mrs. Vreeland was at the Costume Institute has anything like this been staged. Breathtaking in its originality and sumptuous in its execution.
No other book to date has been as inspirational as this.

I adore Apfel! Those clothes! Those glasses! It's a shame how few people like her are left.

I completely agree.
