The book, by writer/director Lisa Immordino Vreeland, focuses on the acclaimed British photographer’s daily life, bringing to life his spirit using photography, drawings, scrapbooks and letters, along with excerpts from his sparkling diaries. The launch was co-hosted by Manolo Blahnik, Penelope Tree and Sotheby's Oliver Barker. Click ahead to see highlights from the evening.
