Catch Grace Coddington and Michael Roberts at the BOOKMARC GingerNutz launch today!

Come to BookMarc today, 4-6 PM to get your copy of GingerNutz signed by muse Grace Coddington and author/illustrator Michael Roberts, who writes in the Epilogue, “GingerNutz went on to become one of the defining models of her generation. And her species. Discovered by a model scout on holiday in Borneo, she signed up with a New York agency. They wanted to give her a smoother look, but they kept losing their tweezers in her coat. Celebrated for her versatility, “Big Red,” as she became known, was equally at home in a photographer’s studio, on the catwalk, or swinging through the trees. Her trademarks were her ever-changing hairstyles— The Gibbon, The Baboon, The Capuchin, and The Rhesus—all of which had a touch of monkey magic. She also popularized the trend amongst models for nibbling handfuls of slimming nuts, bugs, and berries while hanging upside down from a tree. Late in her career, she considered several occupations before deciding to become a magazine fashion editor after being told, ‘Even a monkey could do it.’”
