    Looking for Irving Penn's "Girl in Bed on the Telephone"

    Does anyone know of a book which has a Irving Penn's "Girl in Bed on the Telephone" in it? I'd like to get hold of a copy. And does anyone know when it was made and who the model was?

    Thanks in advance.

    Ian,

    The photo you seek is in this book:

    http://www.amazon.co.uk/Century-Phot...629623&sr=8-16

    Good luck. Amazon seems to have temporary sold out, but you may be able to find it at a local bookstore. Not a large book in terms of size, it is over 700 pages, is a superb compilation, and priced very nicely.

    There is a much more abridged version of this book, but make sure you buy the one over 700 pages.
