GingerNutz

The Jungle Memoir of a Model Orangutan

By Michael Roberts. Foreword by Grace Coddington.

The perfect gift for fashionistas of all ages

Michael Roberts’ charming text and hand-drawn illustrations tell the story of GingerNutz, an orangutan born in the wilds of Borneo who dreams of making it big in the fashion world. At ten years old, GingerNutz finds a copy of Vogue magazine in a bottle washed up on the beach. Entranced by the glamorous images, the precocious primate sets her mind to becoming a high fashion model. She grooms her coat, creates makeup from exotic flowers and styles her ginger-hued hair. She encounters other like-minded jungle creatures—the creative orangutan duo Disco and Grubbana, a haughty and chic silverback gorilla—who together create their own hyper-stylish coterie, and GingerNutz fulfills her dream of sashaying down the runway.

The story of GingerNutz is inspired by legendary model and fashion editor Grace Coddington, the longtime creative director of American Vogue and a close friend of the author. Inspired by Coddington’s best-selling 2012 memoir, Roberts translates Coddington’s discovery of fashion on the isolated Welsh island of Anglesey into a whimsical story about a wild Bornean fashion community. Gorgeously produced in a clothbound edition with a tip-on cover, containing 65 colorful hand-drawn illustrations printed on the highest quality paper, GingerNutz: The Jungle Memoir of a Model Orangutan is a fashionable and fun book that makes the perfect gift for fashionistas of all ages.

British fashion journalist Michael Roberts (born 1947) is fashion royalty: former fashion director for Vanity Fair and the New Yorker, he has brought his impeccable style to his work as a writer, illustrator, art director and photographer. He has published several books of his illustrations including The Snippy World of Michael Roberts and The Jungle ABC.

FROM THE BOOK
FOREWORD, by Grace Coddington

Maybe it’s because I’m usually so preoccupied with my adorable cat family that GingerNutz only recently caught my attention. I wasn’t sure who or what she was, but when a photographer friend of mine raved about her not long ago, I thought, “Wow, she sounds a lot like me!”

We both have frizzy, orangey hair—although mine does not sprout everywhere, thank goodness, because who could afford those hairdressing bills? We both love beautiful clothes, nature, and the sea. And we both have lovely skin that is super-sensitive to sunshine, only I use uncomfortably sticky protective cream while she shelters under a large fresh banana leaf. Earlier, we each found fame as leading fashion models but never crossed paths. Today, we both work with the chicest fashion magazines, yet have still never met...

As my name is Coddington, people called me “The Cod,” which was an unusual nickname for a glamorous model. GingerNutz needed no such nickname, being not just different but unique—the only model orangutan in the entire world. I do hope to meet her someday soon. Meanwhile, here is her story.
