I've always loved Anne Geddes pictures, but have never read any of her books... unfortunately they're not available in Denmark. But this book was a pleasant surprise! Not only did I get the names of my favourite babies... but also the stories behind the pictures. Some are funny, some are sad... but all are worth reading!

9 of 10 people found the following review helpful By Donald Mitchell HALL OF FAMETOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 29 July 2004
Format: Hardcover
The hardcover version of this book deserves more than five stars. It is the most enjoyable and rewarding book of baby photographs that it has been my pleasure to view and hug. I vastly prefer it to the paperback version.
The book has lots of modestly done baby nudity, and a little partial adult female nudity that is totally tame and artistic.
One of the pleasures of this book is that the images are HUGE! In some cases (such as with preemies), the babies are almost life size. The reproduction quality and paper are outstanding, so you can almost feel like you are present with these sleeping, mewling, cuddling, delightful little creatures!
I recently reviewed Ms. Geddes's Black-and-White: Photofolio. Until Now overcomes the limitations that I found in that wonderful work. There are many more images here (113), the size and reproduction are better here, and Ms. Geddes has provided interesting notes about the origins of each photograph.
The book begins with a nice quotation from Pablo Casals about the potential that is represented by each new life. The images connect the babies to nature (appearing as part of fruits and vegetables, masquerading as insects and animals, and overwhelmed with flowers) and to other babies and people. Many of the images also play with the thought that babies are angelic. Beyond that, there is a strong message of the connection that all humans have with one another.
If you are like me, you won't fall in love with all of these photographs. Sometimes sleeping babies aren't exactly the right models for the compositions Ms. Geddes has designed. On the other hand, sleeping babies are perfect in many images here, such as the baby lying upside down on a woman's abdomen.
But almost all of the images of babies and children who are awake are amazingly good.

Wow! What an amazing book this is. The photographs are some of the best I have seen in a great while and the stories behind them are inspiring. The great vision and emotion that has gone into creating such outstanding pieces of modern art are an inspiration to us all.

This book contains some of the most amazing photographs I have ever seen. The work which has gone into creating such images must have been tremendous!
