Considered by many to be the most beautiful woman of her
generation, Sharon Tate remains a fascinating pop icon and a poster
child for the 1960s. What struck most about Sharon was her gentle
nature and the sheer perfection of her face, but she was far more
than just a beauty. The few films she made during her brief career,
including Valley of the Dolls, Eye of the Devil, and
The Fearless Vampire Killers, have secured her position as a
Hollywood legend. Over forty years since her last film, Sharon's
spirit and charisma lives strong in the memories of those who knew
her best, and her style continues to inspire the worlds of fashion,
beauty, art, and film.
Sharon Tate: Recollection is a one-of-a-kind celebration of Sharon's life and career, her influence as a fashion icon throughout the world, and in effect presents a sociological portrait of the 1960s—its youth culture, the sexual revolution, the rise of independent cinema, and Hollywood's changing studio system. In this impressive photo book, Sharon Tate's story emerges through quotes and short essays—recollections—by her sister, Debra Tate, as well as by those who knew and have been influenced by her.
What emerges from these pages is a stunning tribute to an unforgettable life.
