Format: Hardcover
This is a nice compilation of Annie Leibovitz's photos of celebrities. The photos are the book- full page in color. A quality book. Many of Annie Leibovitz's have repeats of photos from other books of her work. This is no exception.

I especially liked the introduction by Tom Wolfe.

this is a fabulous book. i owned it 20 yrs. ago, and my daughter asked me for a copy. it is what you would call a "coffee table book", but i looked at and admired the photos often. my dog eventually chewed it up. i bought the new copy for my daughter as a gift, and i still look at it when i am there. annie leibovitz had a way of getting people to do things, that maybe they would not have. often, it was a metaphor for something about their lives (case in point, yoko ono and a nude john lennon). i would buy this again, and highly recommend it to anyone interested in photos of famous people and/or great photography.

Wow! wonderful book, above my expectations. First, I got to see some of my childhood heroes (Sylvester Stallone) as they were back in the 80s, it worth it only for this. It also contains some famous photos (John Lennon and Yoko Ono). Second, it is a "real" photo book. Big photos, minimal text, nice arrangements. Third, I liked her style very much. The are all kind of pictures, studio and outdoors, staged and neutral. Definitely you would like it in your collection.

I love Annie Leibovitz's photographs but the reproductions in this book are poor and not up to today's printing standards. If I didn't know better I would not be as impressed with her work based on the images in the book.
