In the two essays accompanying this book of photography, Beaton is portrayed as a dandy who inspired David Bailey's generation with a sense of style, as a surrealist photographing Dali, a documentarist in the Western Desert in 1942, a traveller in the Orient and an ardent royalist. Beaton's "beauties" include Dietrich, Garbo and Marilyn Monroe. They are included here beside Picasso, Gertrude Stein, Jean Shrimpton, Jagger and Richards, Gilbert and George, Hockney and the Queen.
