Book Description

3 Nov 2008
"Life" has, of course, visited its archives before - but never like this. This edition puts the photographs on display, not only as part of the page layout but as the page itself. The explanatory text will be out of the way, so that each image can be savoured. Moreover, prints will be included that are not just suitable for framing, but meant for framing. And not only will there be photographic prints; there will also be 75 other famous pictures that appeared in "Life"'s pages, the story behind each of them and the narrative history of what "Life"'s photography has long meant to the country and, indeed, to the world.This is a unique, ground-breaking book. It is the ultimate treatment of our photography to date in book form. As such it is ultra-commemorative and collectible. "The Classic Collection", presented in this classic way, will be a definitive "Life" Book-and a category leader.

5.0 out of 5 stars Life Photos 4 April 2010
By Mike
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This book really is a bargain.It's a large hardback volume and the print quality is superb. It is a book of full page photos from many years of Life magazines existance. 35 of the pictures can be just slipped out should you wish to frame them. Yes they are that good! Had I seen this in a book shop I would have expected its price to be at the very least twenty five to thirty pounds.This book is a must have!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Photographs from Life 3 Jan 2012
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This book is one of my favourite purchases of 2011 which I bought after watching a TV programme about the magazine. It's a truly wonderful chronicle of the middle part of the 20th century with some unique and iconic shots. It's not just a coffee table book but one which I shall look at and share on a regular basis.

5.0 out of 5 stars A stunning book 24 Mar 2014
By Hannah
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I fell in love with this book. When it arrived it was slightly bigger than what I was expecting, immediately an added bonus. Looking through it feels more like an album of beautiful images. Some images even come out so you can frame them - such a nice feature of the book. More photography books should be like this. The printing is of excellent quality and the book really feels like something special. I've always been a fan of LIFE images but this really took it to the next level for me. Well worth buying if you're a fan, I doubt you'd be disappointed.
