217pp, colour illus. 4to, illustrated wrappers, perfect binding. A very good copy. Martin Parr's very own fashion magazine. All photographs taken by Parr. Includes false advertisements for major fashion houses including Hermés, Dior, Kenzo amongst others. Parr shoots a variety of subjects from 'Essex girls', 'jockeys' and 'fashion victims' to 'beans on toast' and 'eastern block carrier bags' (Parr's private collection). Parr aimed to include all the subject areas covered by a fashion/lifestyle magazine, including food and travel as well as articles on prominent figures, in this case Paul Smith and Nick Knight amongst others. Upper wrapper exhibits a youthful image of Parr.
