edie. pure edie.10/11/11| Mia BlankensopI have never been drawn to the whole Factory/Andy Warhol/performance art scene of the sixties. However, when I mailed copies of “Girl on Fire” to our foreign sales reps, I was instantly captivated. Instead of packing up the books right away (like I’m supposed to do), I would furtively flip through the fantastic photos for whole minutes. Edie translates best as a still image. Considering that makeup, expressions, and poses were the main parts of her ‘job’, all photos of Edie are artful or artfully artless (depending on her mood). I dismissed her as the original incarnation of the dreadful Paris Hiltons to come, but “Girl on Fire” absolutely made me adore Edie. I’ve spent a weekend with this book, looked at all the photographs a dozen times, and still idly go back for more again and again. I’m not the only one. My friends and relatives passing through my apartment immediately pick this one up and look through it for at least half an hour. No wonder. Like the beautiful and crazy Edie herself, the book is mesmerizing.
