Produced to the highest specification, 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 closing ceremony. The collection includes rare and unseen moments of Darcey shot by some of the most famous photographers, including Lord Snowdon, Mario Testino and Annie Leibovitz, in locations beyond the stage – including rehearsals, fashion shoots and more – which are accompanied by behind-the-scenes stories and personal anecdotes.
