Kate Moss’s face has been practically ubiquitous for the last 20 years: from her fresh-faced teenage days to the punkish era of heroin chic.

But now, Moss has released Kate: The Kate Moss Book, a glossy coffee table book published by Rizzoli, and out this month. She created the book herself—in collaboration with several fashion world luminaries, including Fabien Baron and Jefferson Hack. It’s simultaneously a career retrospective and celebration of luscious fashion photography—some of which has never before been seen—by photographers such as Arthur Elgort, Craig McDean, Juergen Teller, Terry Richardson, and Hedi Slimane.

The book follows her transformation from the early days, when she was discovered in the pages of Face magazine shot by Corrine Day to early black and white photos for Calvin Klein photographed by Herb Ritts (with Marky Mark)—to her days as a top supermodel alongside Naomi Campbell, Linda Evangelista, and Cindy Crawford.
