Michael Joseph is thrilled to announce the acquisition of a very special book to be published by Penguin (http://www.penguin.co.uk) this autumn.
That extra half an inch by Victoria Beckham will be an accessible, usable and desirable book about fashion, beauty and style from one of the most famous and photographed women in the world.
Packed with realistic and practical advice as well as gorgeous photos and illustrations, Victoria will share her personal top tips as well as anecdotes from the fashion world. That extra half an inch will be the ultimate girl’s guide to looking and feeling the best that you can, and learning a bit about fashion as you go along.
Victoria will be writing the book with Hadley Freeman. Hadley is an award winning fashion journalist and currently deputy fashion editor of the Guardian and a contributing editor of Vogue.
World rights were bought from Simon Fuller’s 19 Entertainment.
