Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This is an outstanding book, and really shows how Steichen contributed so much to what we think of as fashion and glamor photography. The reproduction of the photos is excellent. Because these photos originally appeared in magazines, I would bet that they look better here than they did in those original publications. There's not a lot of text, but what there is is certainly informative and interesting. Highly recommended!

Magnificent photos, outstanding reproduction quality (quadro-tone).
The articles are informative and short, as it should be.
It is extremely interesting what the one of the best pictorialist of the world (may be the best one) could do in fashion. Highly recommended!

By Georgia on September 7, 2014
Format: Hardcover
Truly a beautiful book. I am always looking for high quality coffee table books with large (full page is always best) photographs. I like the text to be minimal, so that the images get a chance to shine in their own right. This book provides a wealth of images in a page after page format and the essays are short and easy to flip past. The pictures are almost full page, in that they have a slight white border and space beneath for a caption. The gallery style of presentation is very satisfying, though the book does leave you wanting more. With books such as these, the term "lavishly illustrated" seems to be bandied around to an almost comical extent. I always get a bit worried when I see a description like that because my idea of "lavishly illustrated" is not a few small to average sized images in the corner of a page full of text (with an occasional full pager to justify it all), no matter how stunning or rare those images may be. But I think it is safe to say this is "lavishly illustrated"!
