About This Book

An illustrated A-to-Z, celebrating the unparalleled artistic impact of the cultural icon Grace Jones.

Singer, songwriter, supermodel, record producer, actress, and iconoclast, Grace Jones is truly one of a kind, equal parts intriguing, intimidating, and indefatigable.

From her early days as a model working with Yves Saint Laurent and Kenzo, to her rise to disco stardom in New York City’s Studio 54, followed by her storming the New Wave with her reggae-infused post-punk sound, through to her arresting, decade-defining work, Jean-Paul Goude, and featuring her eclectic and iconic film career and her continuing artistic output in the current day, Grace Jones A to Z charts her incredibly rich life. This book looks at her life,her art, creative collaborations, films, friendships, and fun—all in a brilliantly illustrated A-to-Z format.
