Singer, songwriter, supermodel, record producer, actress and iconoclast: Grace Jones. One can only imagine how that reads on a business card. She was the phenomenon the world needed - equal parts intriguing, intimidating and indefatigable.
From her early days as a model working with Yves St. Laurent and Kenzo, her rise to disco stardom in New York City's Studio 54 followed by her storming the New Wave with her reggae-infused post-punk, through to her arresting, decade-defining work Jean-Paul Goude, her eclectic film career and continuing artistic output in the current day, Grace Jones A to Z charts her incredibly rich life. This book beautifully illustrates her life, her art, creative collaborations, films, friendships and fun-all in a brilliantly illustrated A to Z format.
