Joan has contributed to an new book devoted to Sharon Tate, by her sister Debra.. The book to be published by Running Press on April 29th 2014 also features recollection's from many other stars.. Below is an extract from the book featuring photo's from Sharon's 1968 wedding to director Roman Polanski..
The star of cult films like Valley of the Dolls and The 
Fearless Vampire Killers, renowned for her startling beauty and as a poster child of the 1960s, Sharon Tate remains a fascinating pop icon to this day. Sharon Tate: Recollection is a celebration of her life and career, her influence as a fashion icon throughout the world, and presents a sociological portrait of 1960s Hollywood. All of this comes from the one-of-a-kind perspective of her sister, Debra Tate, and through stunning images and stories from those who knew her best.
In this impressive photo book, Sharon Tate’s story emerges through quotes and short essays—“Recollections”—by Debra Tate, as well as by those who knew her personally and who have been influenced by her. An all-star cast contributing memories and thoughts on Sharon includes Jack Nicholson, Warren Beatty, Robert Evans, Mia Farrow, Raquel Welch, Hugh Hefner, Michelle Phillips, Patty Duke, Barbara Parkins and Joan Collins. And the book is filled with hundreds of rare and unpublished photos of Sharon Tate taken by the likes of Milton Greene, Richard Avedon, Bert Stern, Norman Parkinson, Philippe Halsman, John Engstead, and more.
Unlike all other books on Sharon Tate that focus on her tragic death in one of the most notorious crimes of the twentieth century, Sharon Tate: Recollection is a stunningly gorgeous tribute to her life.
