This is the regular edition, which comes with a full size black glossy slipcase. Condition is new, but has a serious amount of shelfwear. The size and weight of the book led to this for many copies - the slipcase shows signs of splitting, and the gloss cover has rubbing overall. Please check pictures for details.

We also have a *new* deluxe special edition of the book for sale here.

Gucci by Gucci opens the fabled house's archives for the first time, bringing together in the form of bags, clothes, accessories, and a dazzling cache of documentary photographs the history of the Florentine family-owned saddler that has imprinted its name on the fashion consciousness. Both a history of the company and a glorious visual exploration of its far-reaching influence, the book is a treat for the collector and the fan. Gucci. Just the name conjures up images of la dolce vita Cinecittà stars strolling on the Via Condotti; Jackie O and her signature bag; the Studio 54 chant Halston, Gucci, Fiorucci; Tom Ford's sexy, minimalist era, during which stars and socialites lined up to wear his clothes; and now the fresh and joyous vision of Frida Giannini, the line's new creative director.

From Publishers Weekly: From paparazzi photographs to full page spreads in Vogue, this aptly lavish pictorial history chronicles Gucci's evolution since its 1921 inception in Florence, Italy. The range of shots and locations tells the story of Gucci's ubiquitous place in popular culture, without the aid of captions or credits (both relegated to the end of the book). Aside from a lengthy introduction recapping Gucci history, the collection allows the images to speak for themselves. The mix of old and new Hollywood celebrities shows Gucci spanning time, from Audrey Hepburn, Liza Minelli and Clark Gable to Brad Pitt, Sarah Jessica Parker and Madonna. Taking out the distraction of celebrity, the vibrant Gucci ad campaigns focus on the decadence of the many shoes, handbags and jewelry lines. "The Gucci Icons" section points to "The Bamboo," "The Horsebit," "The Web" and "The GG," staple logos and designs present in Gucci products through the years. Tying together the disjointed series is a spare timeline covering major events in the fashion house. After 400 pages, the show of luxury and opulence may overwhelm the uninitiated, but for fashion students and enthusiasts, this is a volume worth studying.
