 WHAT V ARE READING NOW

Inez van Lamsweerde/Vinoodh Matadin. Pretty Much Everything
In a field rife with inspiration addicts, veteran V contributors Inez and Vinoodh manage to consistently create the most fearlessly original images—subversive, fantastical forays into fashion that begin with clothes and end up as art. It’s a rare feat, and one deserving of this appropriately lush two-volume restrospective, which is now being reissued, with a flexicover and poster, for a tenth of its original price. ($70, taschen.com)

Lori Goldstein: Style Is Instinct
Anyone who frets about the ephemeral nature of styling should consider the career of Lori Goldstein. And now they can. In her 30 years atop the international image game, the super stylist has helped create some of the most viewed images in pop-culture history (e.g., naked and preggers Demi Moore on the cover of Vanity Fair) and secured her place in fashion history. She collects and reflects on her greatest hits in this much- deserved first monograph. ($80, harpercollins.com)

Vanity Fair 100 Years: From the Jazz Age to Our Age
A decade-by-decade look at the defining mass-market magazine of the last century whose signature cocktail of froth and substance has been imitated by many but never duplicated. From Aldous Huxley to Christopher Hitchens, Edward Steichen to Richard Avedon, the gang’s all here. ($65, abramsbooks.com)

Private: Giancarlo Giammetti
The man behind Valentino and current honorary chairman of the brand takes us back to his own childhood under Nazi occupation in Rome. Later, there’s the chance meeting with the young designer that would change the course of fashion and inspire more high living than the Medicis. Thankfully, he kept journals and took over 50,000 snaps along the way. ($250, assouline.com)

Louis Vuitton City Bags: A Natural History
In Rizzoli’s latest luxury monograph, the creation and evolution of Louis Vuitton’s legendary handbag line gets a jolt of intrigue, thanks to a clever conceit: each bag is treated like a species all its own, classified and categorized with scientific precision. St. Francis of Assisi would be proud. ($85, rizzoliusa.com)
