School Library Journal Review

Gr 7 Up-Biography collections in need of a bit of sprucing up should find these titles helpful. Although the books do not follow a direct path from early years to current careers, the personal and professional lives of these fashion idols are covered equally. The volumes are fairly dense with information, so readers may have to use the indexes to find particular facts. Some of the titles, Versace in particular, due to his murder, borrow heavily from previously published works. Curiously, for books about such a visual art form, the full-color photos are pedestrian in content and quality. This criticism aside, these are solid choices.-Carol Fazioli, Gwynedd-Mercy College, Gwynedd Valley, PA (c) Copyright 2011. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.
