Legendary Authors and the Clothes They Wore – Pictures of the most iconic authors of our time

July 26, 2017

Legendary Authors and the Clothes They Wore is an innovative gift book that presents 50 fully-illustrated profiles of men and women of letters whose enduring work bears an original idiosyncratic stamp—and whose unique way of dress does the same through a signature look, hairstyle, or accessory. See exclusive extracts about such icons of literature and the sartorial stories they tell below.


SAMUEL BECKETT

‘He can’t think without his hat.’


DAVID FOSTER WALLACE

‘The literary version of a rock-and-roll
star, complete with hell-yeah bandanna.’


SUSAN SONTANG

‘This look, from the 1990s, is the one for
which Sontag will be remembered.’
