Je l'ai reçu ce matin et très heureux de tourner ces magnifiques pages jusqu'à tomber sur les empreintes de doigts qui marquaient certaines pages, pour ensuite arriver sur des pages déchirées!!!
il avait déjà été feuilleté par quelqu'un et je viens de le renvoyer en attendant un nouvel exemplaire vierge de tout passage!
malgré cela c'est un superbe travail et un magnifique livre !

A History of the World, Courtesy of VANITY FAIR 24 octobre 2008
Par Grady Harp - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
Few books published survey the fascinating moments of the 20th century the way VANITY FAIR PORTRAITS: A CENTURY OF ICONIC IMAGES does. This hefty, handsome volume contains the photographic works of some of the world's most important photographers whose images have graced the pages to Vanity Fair in the two periods of its publication - the beginning and the ending of the 20th century. This is a photographic collection that gives generous full page (and at time double page ) spreads of brilliant photographs by artists who gained permission to enter the lives of movie starts, artists, writers, government personalities, royalty, stage personas, the wealthy and the significant poor - they are all here in both lush color and black and white reproductions.

Not only is it fascinating to leaf through the 300 odd photographs of this book, but it is also rewarding to read the several introductory notes and essays by Graydon Carter, David Friend, and Christopher Hitchens - each of whom lends appreciation for not only the publication that influenced art and fashion and politics and world affairs, but also gave readers a tasteful and solidly informative way to view the world as the characters displayed here influenced our times. This is a collection of art and history married in a way that allows the reader time and contrasts to re-live the past and appreciate the developments that graced the years from 1900 to 2000. Well worth the price! Grady Harp, October 08

AMAZING BOOK! 8 janvier 2009
Par Dana Kurzawa - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
Although I purchased this book as a gift, I did get the chance to look through it as well. This is a gorgeous coffee-table book that is a fine addition to anyone's collection. Amazing photographs from the last century. Once you pick it up, it's hard not to look through the entire thing at least once. Fabulous book!

Great Book, Print Quality so-so 2 octobre 2008
Par Jan Klier - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
If you're into portrait photography, this is a great book covering some well known portraits, and a wide range of style, time, and people. I went through the book several times 'earmarking' portraits for lighting style, posing, and/or composition that I find inspirational.

My copy of the book had several pages though where the ink of one page had worn off onto another page, which was most annoying.

Hitchens and Older Photography Great 20 août 2010
Par carol irvin - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
Hitchens writes a great essay introducing these portraits. The portraits themselves vary in quality. Hands down, the very best ones are the ones done by the great masters earlier in the twentieth century in black and white, especially by Steichen. Of the later photographs, the ones done by Bruce Weber are my favorites along with Ritts, Tesino and others. I think the weakest photos, the ones that will probably not make it as serious art for being overly gimmicky, are Annie Lebovitz's. She makes a great eye catching magazine cover but she does not make ANY portrait that would even give someone like Steichen, were he alive, a moment's worry. Also included are some old Vanity Fair illustrated covers and these were quite gorgeous too. Nowadays this kind of cover could probably not sell a magazine but it's too bad as they were all wonderful works of art. In short, there's something for everyone in this huge collection of portraits. If you prefer very clever photos of present day celebs a lot, then this may be worth a full five stars for you. Those were the ones that took it down to four stars for me.

A Must for Any Lover of Photos 15 juillet 2009
Par Ariana Bauer - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
I am a semi-pro photographer and am always on the lookout for inspiration, so when i saw this on the shelf, I had to pick it up. 10 or 15 pages in, I was hooked. I had to buy it.

The images in this book are incredible, but the foreward the and way the images are arranged just makes reading through that much more fun.

The book is for everyone really, with celebrities photos starting around 1913. It is really an ode to our time in pictures.

I would recommend this book to everyone and am happy I purchased it.
