I'm not a fashion expert or even fashionable so I was surprised at how entertaining and enjoyable I found this book. Through Nudie's life moving from being a Russian emigre to finding his feet in New York and finally his huge success in California we see the development of society, music and film.
It's beautifully illustrated with some really cool shots of unexpected people wearing Nudie suits; Suzi Quatro, Bobby Gillespie, Dolly Parton.
This book is a lovely thing to have and Nudie Cohn is definitely worth knowing about.
