Hal Rubenstein and his marvellous eccentrics in print

A journalist, restaurant critic, designer, philanthropist and author of five books Hal Rubenstein invites us to the world with inhabitants living the fashion.

Published in collaboration with Dallas-based Forty Five Ten, The Eccentrics features exclusive interviews with such icons as Iris Apfel, Edward Bess and Dita Von Teese. 

Coupled with original photography by internationally renowned photographer Ruven Afanador that captures the idiosyncrasies, characteristics, and personas of each subject, legendary journalist Hal Rubenstein defines what sets these individuals apart, and, most importantly, what makes them what they are. “The Eccentrics” of our times.
