Guidelines to the System

Verdi Yahooda (1990)

Out of print

Guidelines to the System is a book in three distinct parts. The first section ‘Landmarks’, consists of a pattern-cutter’s guide to measuring the body. The second section is a text, ‘9th August 1990’ by photographer, Craigie Horsfield. The final section, ‘Pathways’, consists of photographic images − taken by Verdi Yahooda, who is primarily a photographer − of dressmaker’s paraphernalia.

This book, both in form and in content, presents itself as an enigma. The unique loose-leaf construction along with the juxtaposition of texts and image combine to entice the reader into solving the enigma of ‘The System’.
