The cover coincides with this autumn’s Christie’s auction where this very image will be going under the hammer, along with a collection of Moss related pieces, including photographs taken by legends such as Annie Leibovitz, Mario Testino, Sam Taylor-Wood and Irving Penn, as well as that Marc Quinn gold sculpture of the Brit model.
