Pattie Boyd: My Life in Pictures

Foreword by Ronnie Wood.

Pattie Boyd: My Life in Pictures

A deluxe visual treasure trove of photographs, letters, diaries and more from the iconic fashion model, photographer, wife of George Harrison and Eric Clapton, and one of the most famous muses of the 20th century

Pattie Boyd (born 1944) was at the epicenter of the London music and pop-culture scene in the 1960s and 1970s. Pattie Boyd: My Life in Pictures features over 300 photographs and artworks, with Boyd sharing full and intimate access to her personal archive for the first time. Former wife of George Harrison and Eric Clapton, Boyd is famously the inspiration for Harrison’s “Something” and Clapton’s “Layla” and “Wonderful Tonight.” Boyd’s love of photography developed around the time of her marriage to Harrison. She documented their life together, and later also her second marriage to Clapton, capturing a vast archive of images not just as part of two of the most famous marriages of all time, but also documenting their close friends and contemporaries, including Twiggy, David Bailey, Mick Jagger, Billy Preston and the Beatles.
Boyd’s archive also includes letters from her marriages and from friends, including John and Yoko. It includes diary entries, artifacts and artworks, most famously the original Layla album cover painting by Emile Frandsen. It features extensive photographs from her early modeling career for Vogue and Vanity Fair among other publications, giving a fascinating snapshot into the sea change that occurred in the modeling industry from the postwar demure black-and-white approach to the psychedelic, short-skirt, swinging ’60s. It includes portraits and photographs of Boyd taken by some of the greatest photographers of the 20th century, such as David Bailey, Eric Swayne, Terence Donovan, Robert Freeman and Robert Whitaker. The pictorial feast is further animated by Boyd’s accompanying stories and recollections.


PRAISE AND REVIEWS

Daily Mail

Kathryn Knight

While it’s mainly an anthology of images from her remarkable life — from portfolio shots to photos she has taken herself over the years in her secondary career as an acclaimed photographer — it is her accompanying contemporaneous diary entries and scribbled reminiscences which leap out most vividly.

i-D

Sara Rosen

A mesmerising mélange of personal and professional memories that chronicle an era of style and stardom that elevated sex, drugs, and rock n’ roll to the pantheon of pop culture.

Guardian

Mee-Lai Stone

This rich and evocative visual memoir brings to life the music, fashion and pop culture scene through the eyes of one of the most iconic fashion models and famous muses of the 20th century – who was at the epicentre of 60s London.

People

Jordan Runtagh

Showcases her formidable talent as a photographer and her unique perspective on an era’s intersection of music, fashion and spirituality.

'Pattie Boyd: My Life in Pictures' featured on CBS Morning!

In case you haven't seen it today on the CBS Morning show, or in other major press outlets like The Guardian, i-D or People magazine, we're here to tell you that Pattie Boyd: My Life in Pictures has at last arrived on our shores, courtesy of noted UK art book publisher Reel Art Press of Led Zeppelin by Led Zeppelin and Black Ivy fame. A deluxe visual treasure trove of photographs, letters, diaries and more from one of the most famous muses of the twentieth century—and a gifted photographer in her own right—this is a book that's very hard to put down if you have any interest in pop culture, music or fashion of the 60s and 70s. It's also one of our top Holiday Gift Books of 2022. "I take life as it comes to me," Boyd is quoted. "I digest it and then I do something about it. Or I don't. I'm quite proactive and I like to do things immediately, but I'm learning to hold back and not be so spontaneous. I decided very early on that there never needed to be a dull moment in life. If you find yourself feeling dull, just change your mind." continue to blog
