Being Beautiful is an inspiring assemblage of writings on beauty – inner, outer and everything inbetween – from some of the world’s most fascinating thinkers.

Beauty. How do we achieve it? Who gets to define it? How do you live a beautiful life? Being Beautiful is an inspiring assemblage of writings on beauty – inner and outer – from some of the world’s most fascinating thinkers.

This is an anthology for dipping into, but also for drawing lessons about the business of being beautiful. Contributions include the Buddha on living beautifully, the philosopher Edmund Burke on how to define a beautiful face, Dolly Parton on the importance of inner beauty, and Naomi Wolf on ageing beautifully.

Through its text and original illustrations, the book attempts to explore and illuminate what beauty means to us in the twenty-first century, and to inspire, provoke and delight. Other contributors include John Cage, Maya Angelou, Francis Bacon, Charlotte Brontë, Immanuel Kant, Joan Collins, Kate Moss, and many more.
