All of the imagery is of high quality although not all need have been previously published. Some, I have seen elsewhere and quite recently although the majority is either new to me or only slightly familiar.
Although not in any way a history of photography, and probably never intended to be one, it is something of a history of Magnum although this represents a very small percentage of the images under their control. This book may be very closely compared with The Great LIFE Photographers as several of the same photographers, and some of the images, appear in both and Life magazine used Magnum's photographers by choice.
The style of photography is very much of the 'News' or 'Photo-Journalism' styles and some of it moves slightly to one side towards pictorialism or some other category. That makes for a good variety. Each 'article' includes a biography of the photographer or some other relevant data, all of which makes for not just a collection of historical images but something significantly greater.
An important addition to any photographer's collection.
The only down side is that it will make your own photography look rubbish by comparison!
All-in-all a great read over 500+ pages which provides both a collection in it's own right and a useful sampler for some lesser-known photographers' work. Highly recommended.

This is the paperback version of Magnum Magnum which is identical in every way (apart from weight and size) of the hardback version - same pictures, same presentation. The difference is that the paperback version can be read on your lap without its weight cutting off the circulation to your feet !
Great book, fantastic pictures, constant source of inspiration.
