The Invention of Chic
Thames & Hudson's Design departments swept away the competition at last year's British Book Design and Production Awards.

The Invention of Chic won the Monochrome/Duotone Illustrated category, and there was a special award for the best book from all the award categories, which again went to The Invention of Chic.

The American photojournalist Therese Bonney was one of many brilliant young foreigners drawn to the bright lights of Paris in the 1920s. There she founded the Bonney Service, the first American illustrated press service in Europe. Its speciality - her passion - was modern French design and architecture.

Therese Bonney is usually remembered for her work as a war photographer; The Invention of Chic, based on Bonney's amazing and little known archive, reveals an earlier episode in the life of this extraordinary woman, an influential player at a key moment in the history of twentieth-century design.
