The first book from Darcey Bussell in over six years, retired darling of the British Ballet and beloved judge of Strictly Come Dancing, this publishing extravaganza coincides with the the superstar ballerina's 50th birthday.

Exquisitely produced, the book is filled with remarkable images of Dame Darcey in various notable locations, such as a pod of the London Eye, on top of the Victoria and Albert memorial, and performing at worldwide events, like the Olympics opening ceremony. The collection includes rare and unseen moments of Darcey shot by some of the most famous photographers, including Lord Snowden, Mario Testing and Annie Liebovitz, in locations beyond the stage - including rehearsals, fashion shoots and more - which are accompanied by behind-the-scenes stories and personal anecdotes.

A fitting testament to one of our true national treasures, this glorious and charming book is a wonder to enjoy for years to come.
