Book on famous art director Ruth Ansel
One day in 1962, Nancy White, the Editor in Chief of Bazaar, had a heated argument with her Artistic Director, Marvin Israel, and fired him. She replaced him with two women : Bea Feitler and Ruth Ansel. Both went on to become celebrities in their field. After Bazaar, Ruth Ansel moved on to the New York Times magazine, Vogue, and Vanity Fair. Ruth, in publishing, designed Peter Beard’s The End Game, Richard Avedon’s The 60’s, Dark Odyssey by Philippe John Griffiths, and Annie Leibowitz’s Women.
