Dont think twice about purchasing it as a gift.
(This refers to the hardback version, however the photos are the same in the condensed version)
This version appears to be an electronically or photographically reduced version of the original. I don't have a problem with the photographic content as the book is of similar size to many others and many of its images are either presented full page or an a two-page spread. Where I do have an issue is in the size of font used - it is far too small to read comfortably. To make matters worse, a significant proportion is reversed white (or grey) on black and that will always be more difficult to read and especially in the size used here. In most instances, the text is legible only under good light. I cannot think of another book which I now own or have owned in the past where this was an issue.
The contents are arranged by decade but not necessarily chronologically within the chapter. The styles of photography, and of the clothing worn, is therefore very evident. I have often stated in other reviews that the imagery in many books should be sufficient to stand alone and that any text is largely superfluous; that is largely also true with this.Read more ›
The content of this book is fantastic. It's a great collection of portraits, and I appreciated the short texts that accompany them. But the print in the paperback is so ridiculously small that it's often hard to read. And the binding flimsy and prone to cracking - don't try to lay the book spread open too flat. I got back on Amazon the next day and found the hardcover version of this book, which I will buy and then I'll give away the paperback to someone.
tl;dr - If you like this kind of content, it's worth paying extra for the (larger) hardcover edition.

This is a great photo book looking at stunning images throughout the last century. Great to just flick through and good for composition ideas too.Published on 11 Aug. 2010 by R. J. Sharpe
