All pictures are of excellent quality, very beautifully printed and luxuriously big . There's just no small picture in the book. It's a mix of runway, campaign, celebrity, editorial and misc. shots of Ford at Gucci sorted year by year. It also shows his own interior designs and products that created a stir such as certain shoes, bags, accessories etc. There is a big interview with Ford in it as well, and quotes. It's perfect for your coffee table (it's almost a coffee table itself haha).

I think it's about $85, but I could be wrong. I put it on my X-Mas list- ha ha! I hope I get it

To answer questions, it is mostly pictures, there is commentary as Alura said it's sorted by each year that he was at Gucci and YSL. It's really not about Tom so much as it is about his time as a designer.

And the list price is actually $125, but Amazon.com offers it for 85.

There is an interview in the beginning with Bridget Foley from W, but after that it goes chronologically with what he was thinking for each year's collection and what was going on in terms of the business.

I got mine from the Neiman Marcus Christmas Book...it comes autographed for $125.

yes it is, it's not the biography of Tom Ford it's his work as a fashion designer at Gucci and YSL.
