Beautiful Photos 8 octobre 2008
Par E. Dempsey - Publié sur
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
I love this book! The photographs are stunning as one can expect from Life Magazine photographers. Some of the photos are famous, some less well-known. The book is large and the pictures are BIG, too, filling up the entire page. I especially liked this feature. Often, books have several smaller photos on one page, in this book the pictures are a very good size. Included in this collection (which is VERY reasonably priced) are 25 full-sized prints ready for framing. The prints cover a variety of subjects making it almost certain that everyone will find one or more prints that they would like to frame and put up in their homes. I'd definitely recommend this book. It's a great book at a great price.

Revisiting Those Great Photos from Life Magazine 29 octobre 2008
Par Steven A. Peterson - Publié sur
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
In the later 1950s and early 1960s, I remember my family subscribing to a number of magazines--TV Guide, Newsweek, McCall's, Ladies' Home Journal, Popular Science, some farm journal (we lived on and worked on a farm), and Newsweek, Look--and Life. The latter two were always eagerly awaited, because of the photography coupled with the stories.

This book, Life: The Classic Collection captures the spirit of those photographically oriented publications. The book begins by quoting its founder, Henry Luce, speaking of his vision (Page 4): "To see and to be shown is now the will and new expectancy of half mankind. To see and to show is the mission now. . . ." The inaugural issue debuted in 1936.

This volume has some interesting features. Some of the classic photos can be removed to be framed and displayed (and a second copy remains within the volume itself); there is little text, although the photos are identified.

Those of us who grew up back in the 1950s (and before) will instantly remember many of these photos. I vaguely recall having seen--and appreciated--the photo of Jack and Bobby Kennedy facing one another in the shadows; the NFL Championship game in 1966; the Black Power salute at the 1968 Olympics; the seven original astronauts in 19659. . .

Others are classics that I remember after they were published--Harry Truman displaying the headline that says "Dewey Defeats Truman" (I was born in 1947, so--obviously--I have no memory of this!); Margaret Bourke-White taking a photo from atop the Chrysler Building; The D-Day at Omaha Beach photo. . . .

So, for those who lived with Life magazine, this is a nice way of recalling memories. For those not familiar with this classic magazine, this represents a terrific introduction to the art of the photograph.

Best of the best 21 décembre 2008
Par David R. Jennings - Publié sur

I purchased this book for my father's 89th birthday. We all looked through the book, and everyone could remember seeing different pictures over the years. For anyone who grew up with Life magazine this is nostalgia at it's best. There are lots of memories in this book, both happy and the sobering.

This is a beautiful book. Has duplicate photos for framing on top of original photos(on some) in book with tissue paper between those pages. Bought two for gifts.
Great Photographic Collection 17 novembre 2010
Par Stephen Pellerine - Publié sur
Format: Relié
I think it is safe to say that there was an error with the 1 rating and that this book is a simple 4 Star Plus, and I feel a 5 is easy to award.

As a general citizen interested in images there are a lot of classic works presented here. As a photographer, and instructor of photography, I like this book as it has a lot of wonderful images to share and discuss with the wonderful bonus of the inserted images. There are 25 prints included, in the version I have, and you can take these out and do as you please.

For the general citizen they would make wonderful wall hangings and/or decorations. For the photography teacher they are easily laminated (for protection) to hand out and generate discussion. A little blue-tac and voila also decorations for the classroom. We can have students venture out and collect information on either the photographer or the photographs theme.

For $20 - you could not buy the prints at some arts shop, I think the prints in a specialty shop could run you from $3-$10 a piece. The books a bargain if you are looking for a collection of classic mainstream images.
