Editorial Reviews

Review

'Another price-is-right item from Phaidon ... the cards range from Martin Parr's whimsically garish English close-ups to photojournalist James Nachtwey's austere black-and-whites. They come in a cute little tin that's worth saving.' (American Photo) 'The sheer power is breathtaking...heartbreakingly beautiful.' (Independent) 'Magnum are the originals, the auteurs, the most committed of the photojournalists, and they demand respect.' (foto8)

I have a bunch of the postcards from this collection hanging on the wall of my apartment. They are beautiful and striking - mini works of art! The postcards are square shaped and on high quality paper. They come in a funky metal tin. This collection is a really good value either as decor or to actually send the postcards. It would make a great gift. It is a well-edited collection of images from around the world which I highly recommend.

The photographs are reduced to such a small size that you need a magnifying glass to look at them. And then, there are about 5 interesting photographs and the others are just boring. It is as if they gave a bunch of disposable cameras to kindergarteners. I don't get what is cool about the back of a head partially blocking the view of a windmill; maybe you will.

The cards are not only beautiful, but are very fine teaching aids. I use them as writing prompts for upper elementary and middle school kids, and they would work for adults as well. I've also used them in teaching English as a Second Language. It is nice to have interesting images to discuss, in any language. And, of course, they are excellent for art classes -- for discussions of line, shape, foreground, background, movement, focal point, etc. Oh, one more thing I use them for. My kids pick one a night, and we make up stories about what we see, or imagine we see, in the card -- where it might be, what the people might be doing, or some such flight of imagination. In short, this excellent set is a very versatile communication tool.
