RH strikes a pose with Vogue's Coddington
29.07.11 | Charlotte Williams
Random House has acquired the memoirs of long-time US Vogue creative director Grace Coddington, in a Transatlantic deal for a reported $1.2m (£700,000).
The memoirs will be simultaneously published by Random House in the US and Canada, and Chatto and Windus in the UK, with a publication date and title still to be confirmed.
Random House US and Chatto and Windus jointly acquired world English-language rights, with publishing director Clara Farmer securing the title for Chatto and Windus through Natasha Fairweather of A P Watt. Random House US publisher Susan Kamil worked through Elyse Cheney of the Cheney Literary Agency in the US.
Coddington will co-write the title with Michael Roberts, style editor-at-large at Vanity Fair, with the book to cover her childhood in wartime England, her experiences as a model in London during the 1960s, and her time at Vogue working with editor Anna Wintour and styling countless shoots. The book will also feature photographs and Coddington's own illustrations.
