Silent movie star and femme fatale Louise Brooks, who made 24 films between 1925 and 1938, is best known for her role as Lulu in the 1929 German classic Pandora’s Box. Lulu Forever is the opulently illustrated chronique scandaleuse of this seductive, rebellious nymphet with bob. Too intelligent for Hollywood, she was rediscovered in the 1970s and has become a 20th-century icon. German edition.

German edition of Louise Brooks: Lulu Forever
I just came across this webpage, which announces the German edition of Louise Brooks: Lulu Forever, by Peter Cowie. The cover varies slightly from the American edition. And the descriptive text - copied below - reads with an interest. The book will retail in Germany for 49,80 euros and according to this page, will be available on September 15 (before the title is available in the United States).
