    Marvelous and enchanting pictures, shame about the text.In spite of the layout leaving large white spaces for the text accompanying the illustrations, it s been cramped up using a ridiculously small font size seems about 5 or 6 point making it difficult to read for those of us not gifted with 20 20 vision.FIVE stars otherwise .

    We bought this for an elderly relative The book and pictures are beautiful but the font size for the text is ridiculously tiny Even a person with normal eyesight will struggle to see this it just looks completely silly.

    This is a beautiful book, as soon as you open the first page Darceys grace and beauty comes shinning out It is so unbelievable that a body can be so graceful and look so seemingly weightless The stories and memories that Darcey has to tell with each photo are so interesting, its like a behind the scenes book I would really recommend this book for all ballet fans and fans of beauty.

    This book is absolutely beautiful with stunning pictures ofDarcy s incredible career I love ballet and this is a lovely book filled with interesting facts and details of performances If you are a fan of ballet then this sumptuous book is highly recommended.

    I bought this book as inspiration for taking some ballet photography There are some terrific images of Darcey throughout her career in this well presented book Although it wasn t bought because of Darcey I am a fan and so it had extra value.

    As soon as I heard about this book, I bought it for my collection It is a sumptuous production with lots of gorgeous photos, mostly colour, of Darcey in her favourite roles, printed on high quality paper She writes the captions and commentary herself Darcey was fabulously talented, so that it was a shame that she retired so soon This book makes an elegant souvenir of her career There are only two other books about her Life in Dance an autobiography and Darcey Bussell A Celebration by Clive Burton, neither of which is as enjoyable as this volume.

    Quite pricey for what it is I bought this as a present for a friends daughter who loved it.

    This is a stunningly beautiful book with plenty of magic pics by a variety of photographers covering her whole career As a bit of a Bussell fan there are some gaps in the roles productions, but luckily I have collected copies of those since 1992 anyway for the general fan this book will than suffice.Lovely pics of Jonathan Cope too my xmas wish is that someone would do a book like this on him

    This is an absolutely gorgeous coffee table book dedicated to Royal Ballet dancer Darcey Bussell I believe that this tome was released in time to celebrate her retirement a couple years ago but I had only heard about it recently, whilst watching a rerun of The Graham Norton Show on BBC Canada This book is filled with beautiful insights and photographs both in B W and colour of the English dancer and is a real collectors item for fans of the Royal Ballet and Darcey Bussell herself.Physically, the book is quite hefty with a gorgeous hardcover no flimsy dust jacket here Each page has a photograph with insights from both Bussell and her friends co workers I can t wait to display this on my coffee table and or bookshelf because it truly is an eye catching book.
