For many fashionistas, scouring the local used-book store for an out-of-print copy of photographer Sam Haskins’s Cowboy Kate & Other Stories is almost a rite of passage. The lucky may wind up with a 4-by-7-inch, 155-page paperback that will cost up to $250—all worth it for this famed black-and-white photo essay that tells the hazy story of a bad, scantily clad cowgirl named Kate. But now the hunt has become a whole lot easier: Rizzoli has released a whopping 11-by-14-inch oversize edition ($45) of the 1964 cult favorite. The update gives new life to Haskins’s enchanting and grainy ode to the female form, making it a must-have for photography and fashion lovers alike.
