This is an auction for 100 YEARS OF FASHION ILLUSTRATION by Cally Blackman.

Amazon.com reviews:

"FIVE STARS!! This book is an absolute dream come true for me. It has inspired me not only costume wise, but also decorating my new apartment. You just never know where inspiration can come from. I would not hesitate for one second to recommend this book. It's really beautifully done."

“A visual feast of 400 dazzling images, this is a comprehensive survey of the genre over the last century. The book also offers an overview of the development of fashion, as seen through the eyes of the greatest illustrators of the day. Early in the century fashion illustration reflected new, liberating currents in art and culture, such as the exoticism of the Ballets Russes, while the post-War period saw inspiration from the great Parisian couturiers. After the dominance of the celebrity fashion photographer in the 1960s, a new generation of illustrators emerged, embracing the medium of the computer, while many returned to more traditional techniques. It is an invaluable resource for art and fashion professionals and a beautiful design object for consumers everywhere.”
