This is a beautiful book, text and illustrations are as good as the package. I have been inspired by British style since my teenage years (a raving punk in 1977!) and this is by far the best guide for quirky and essential British style since the magazines 19 and the Face in the 80's. I really like Luella. Her knowledge and wit makes me want to become a British Bird when I turn 60 - and I really haven't that many years to go! Living in Scandinavia I have a very different standard to live up to, but I have decided to stay put to Luellas vision!
