Little, David, Vintage Denim , Larry Bond (photos), Salt Lake City, Gibbs-Smith, 1996, first edition , 4to (12" x 9"), SB, color photo illus wraps w/ apricot & black titles, F / none.

154 pp. Profusely illustrated in b&w and color photos - including several referential examples to denim worn in American films. From the blurb: "When the vintage denim craze caught on in Paris and Tokyo, it was just a matter of time before it would appear on Rodeo Drive, Fifth Avenue, Melrose Avenue, and other American fashion hubs. Vintage Denim heralds the craze, jumping in at the forefront to define what makes denim vintage and to provide a pricing guide for anybody interested in mining for denim gold." A well designed, visual feast with entertaining prose about the history of denim and its iconic role as "America's second skin". A resource list at the back. A near perfect copy of an increasingly rare and indispensible reference for the collector, vintage clothing dealers, or those who design for younger fashionisti.
