1960s Quant by Quant book republished by the V&A
An interesting choice of title for a V&A reissue - the original 1960s biography of Mary Quant, going by the name of Quant by Quant.
As for the book itself, it's all about the early days of Mary Quant up until her (arguable) peak in the swinging London era - growing up, her early life and career with husband and business partner Alexander Plunket Greene, her first boutique in 1955 and the international fame that followed. You also get the original images from the book, which is a nice bonus.
You can get a paperback copy from Amazon for £8.09, with the e-book likely to be here before the year is out.
