Vintage Black Glamour Encore (Signature Edition)

Vintage Black Glamour Encore (Signature Edition)

Nichelle Gainer

‘It’s been ten years since the first Vintage Black Glamour book was published in 2014, and partly in celebration of that but mostly because it’s long overdue, I’m delighted to be able to announce that Vintage Black Glamour Encore will be published next Spring!

As with the other VBG books, it’s packed with photographs of legendary artists, from the latter half of the 20th century and the early part of the 21st century who continue to inspire us.

This is the Signature Edition, which has a unique cover design and is also signed by me.

My hope is that by telling and preserving the stories of these artists (especially the lesser-known ones) in the pages of Encore, more people will appreciate the sacrifice and innovations that still inform and inspire people now, as they will future generations.

Preorder and add your name to the Roll of Honour, which will be printed in the book.

Thank you!’
