Format: Paperback
What an amazing woman - her life is truly a triumph of the will. Whether one believes her stand on Nazism wholly or only partially,one still has little option ultimately but to admire her.

Format: Perfect Paperback
Everyone knows that Taschen and quality are synonymous. This collection of 30 post cards concentrates on Leni Riefenstahl and her work. The cover picture of the container is the same portrait of Leni found on the cover of the book "Leni Riefenstahl: Five Lives" edited by Angelika Taschen. There is a two page synopsis of Leni and her works in English in the front and the same in German in the back. The rest are striking monochrome postcards that need no descriptions. You better buy two as you may not want to break up the set.

Format: Paperback
What a neat, neat book. Over 600 pages and I read it easily in a few days, then lent it to two people who also read it within a few days. Obviously, almost impossible to put down... And the book starts getting REALLY exciting when she is in her 60's, travelling through Africa. While this woman certainly has a large ego, and HAS to be embellishing a few stories (for example, almost every man she meets seem to immediately fall madly in love with her and attempt suicide upon being rejected by her), she is not anywhere close to being the monster she is constantly portrayed as. Her argument that she was simply an artist creating documentaries with no political interest at all seems pretty reasonable after reading this book. The woman is entirely self-absorbed: not necessarily a huge insult to an artist. And if the celebration of beauty (even physical beauty) is an exclusively nazi ideal, call me a nazi too.
