Manolo's New Shoes Reviews

'Exquisite design sketches ... Blahnik's richly coloured drawings are often exuberantly exaggerated - hyper-arched with impossibly thin heels - which add to the sense of magic that imbues his designs ... Presented here on a grand scale' - Metro
'Sketches, photographs of the sometimes gravity-defying heels and insights into his inspirations' - Vogue
'A glorious book for shoe addicts' - Tatler
