Haskins, Sam - Cowboy Kate and other stories
"Cowboy Kate & Other Stories" is an iconic sixties book which played a key role in defining the style of that decade and creative black and white photography in particular. It continues to exert a strong influence today on a wide range of visual professionals and designers. The cover is one of the most 'referenced' images in post war fashion history, and it won the Prix Nadar in France in 1964 and was included in the 'The Open Book: A History of the Photographic Book from 1878 to the Present' Exhibition at the International Center of Photography in New York in 2005.
