Format: Hardcover
Yet another 'Best of...' book about the world's greatest photo magazine. After the weekly folded in 1972 and the monthly folded in 2000 then another go at a weekly which folded in 2005 Time is left with magazine specials and anniversary editions like this one to generate income. All the top photos in these pages, that appeared in the magazine over the years, have been reprinted many times, especially in the last anniversary book 'Life: the first fifty years 1936-1986'.

This book though does have some interesting things going for it. A large format, at sixteen inches deep, making stunning photos and even more impressive and printed on a good matt art paper with a 175 screen. The layout and typography is probably the best I've seen in any Life book. The back pages reproduce thumbnails of all the weekly covers from issue one and nicely all the special editions and books right up to the magazine edition of this book.

The cherry on the cake for me was the facsimile of the first edition inside the back cover. (If you're buying a pre-used copy I suggest you check with the seller that this is included, I've already seen a copy where the seller stated it wasn't) The production is probably better than the original, the paper certainly is and I doubt it had a thicker cover paper like this one. It's a pity the heading and captions are missing on page fifty-four, a heading and caption from the previous page is used and on page sixty-nine the caption is missing above a photo. Hard to imagine why these mistakes happened.

If you are too young to remember Life this book is a good introduction to a magazine that presented some of the world's best photojournalism to several million readers each week.

What a wonderful publication. For anyone who is fascinated by Life and its photographic legacy this is pure gold.
There's even a great copy of the first ever 1937 issue - complete with ads explaing how smoking Camels aids digestion! Priceless pre-Mad Men con.

A genuine joy to receive - this ultra large volume would make a fabulous present - especially for keen photographers or senior citizens who would love reliving their own life through Life.

No hesitation - BUY!

I bought my first copy of Life in 1960 (still have it) and got hooked. Being picture-led gave it an advantage over the Saturday Evening Post and Look.This book is excellent - stunning reproduction of great and memorable photographs plus the bonus of a copy of the first edition.

Without a doubt "the world's best photographs"
Knowing that John Dominus is well represented, to me is an extra bonus....in the late 50's John and Time Journalist "Payne" (forgotten his sirname) covered a story at our nature reserve in Queensland Australia....they spent several weeks covering "The flying platypuses" (time archives).
The Dominus pictures of Frank Sinatra and John Wayne are truly magnificent. So glad to know John Dominus is still around these days.
This publication is not on sale in Indonesia, so thanks to Amazon for sending it off promptly....and that wonderful copy of the first Life magazine!

Fantastic iconic pictures capturing decades of moving and historic events. My only niggle is that the book is very big and heavy and impossible to hold for very long. Definitely a coffee table book, but then there's quite a bit of interesting writing which would not be easy to read with the book laid flat on a table. Anyway, it's an amazing book and great value for money.

I bought this as a Christmas present for my 17 year old grandson who is aiming to be a professional photographer and who I'd taken to New York in the summer - what an excellent choice as this book cover all bases - broadens his photographic sensibility and serves as a reminder of our holiday.
It arrived very well packaged and within the timeframe.

Used to be an avid reader of Life magazine in the 60's. Saw this avertised and mentioned it to my husband who bought it as a gift. It is a beautifully produced book and very enjoyable for all the family to browse through.
