HER MAJESTY’S SERVICE
The Diamond Jubilee year is coming to an end, but it will live on in the history books. A notable one, “Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II,” has just been released by Taschen Books. It celebrates the queen’s private and public lives through hundreds of photographs, many previously unseen and sourced from multiple archives in the U.K., Europe and the U.S.. Edited by Reuel Golden, it includes images by Cecil Beaton, Lord Snowdon and Patrick Lichfield, as well as more recent pictures from the likes of Wolfgang Tillmans, Rankin and Annie Leibovitz. Vivienne Westwood has designed a limited edition of 1,000 covers and clamshell cases for the title, which costs 99.99 pounds, or $160 at current exchange, from taschen.com or at the Taschen shop off Sloane Square. — J.N.
