4to, original boards, in price-clipped dust-jacket; illustrated throughout with black and white photographs; a little chipping to wrapper, ink inscription, otherwise a very good copy.
First edition. Somehow linking Cardinal Hume, Bob Geldof, Margaret Thatcher, Alan Sugar, Michael Grade, Michael Gambon, Toyah Wilcox and many others, this collection of Levine's famous portraits is a glimpse of the rich, famous and (self-) important of a legendary decade.
