Format: Hardcover
This photographic essay has something for everyone. It covers 20 years in the White House from a very special point of view. Diana Walker with a camera in hand had access to moments in history that no one else has had. She has captured our Presidents in serious and funny situations and all the moods in between. Her descriptions are well worth reading and make this very special "coffee table" book all the more important in its place in history. I highly recommend buying this book and it makes a great present.

Diana Walker not only captures timeless moments in history, but through her comments and those of the former presidents and first ladies, gives you an inside view to the workings of the world's most powerful office. A must buy!

I bought this book on a trip to the USA, when I was visiting Mount Vernon, because it gave a nice overview of the presidency. I was thinking to buy a book, with just some nice pictures of all the (recent) presidents. But when I came home and started turning the pages, I saw that it had all these remarkable photographs. And as it turned out, they where all from the same photographer: Diana Walker. This must be realy a remarkable person, because she seems to have had access to all of the presidencies to take pictures behind the scene. As it turned out, i bought a realy excelent photo book that also illustrates the pivotal moments of the American presidency.
