A blog dedicated to the beautiful and delightful 60s model, Penelope Tree

"Penelope is never only of today. To each gesture she brings a sense of all the things that have ever interested her, out of this she invents every moment a new little role for herself which she plays with devastating humor ... she is a delight."
Richard Avedon

"Penelope Tree is the most original model there's ever been. She's the most original-looking girl I've ever seen."
David Bailey
