This photogravure print is taken from a disbound copy of the 'Book of Beauty', published in 1926.
Various 'Society' Ladies were photographed by Cecil using the technique of photogravure, sometimes known as copperplate. This had a popular revival in the 20's because of the soft, artistic quality of the images.
