Women of the 1920s presents gorgeous illustrations and text on women whose work and lifestyle created a new female image, and who introduced new styles in their area of expertise. Among them are fashion gurus and designers like Lee Miller, Sonia Delaunay or Elsa Schiaparelli; writers and artists like Dorothy Parker, Tamara de Lempicka or Zelda Fitzgerald; women with an appetite for adventure or sports like Claeronore Stinnes, Amelia Earhart, or Suzanne Lenglen; women to whom the stage was a second home like Josephine Baker, Kiki de Montparnasse or Anita Berber; those who took the camera into their own hands; as well as society ladies or glamour girls like Luisa Casati and Clara Bow who added sensual pleasure to life.
