Kids Stays In The Picture

-------

Her fashion stock has rarely been higher than in the last year, when Patti Smith’s punky, layered look found a whole new generation of fans and imitators. Her literary stock is on the up-and-up too: Last night, Smith won the National Book Award for Just Kids, her memoir of her life and friendship with photographer Robert Mapplethorpe. Earlier this month, the book came out in paperback, and it’s currently selling on Amazon.com for a mere $7.71. That means you’ve got no excuse not to read it. As for us, we don’t need any excuse to publish great vintage pics of Patti—like this one from the late seventies, with Lou Reed, above—but we’ll take this opportunity anyway.
