5.0 out of 5 stars Another Great Collection from a Great Sports Photographer, November 28, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This book is essentially a companion piece to the same photographer's 2008 publication "Ballet in the Dirt:" It's in a weighty coffee table format, it covers a very similar period, it contains a minimal amount of accompanying text, and it mostly spotlights Leifer's remarkable camera work. All of these are good things: "Ballet" was a fabulous collection of baseball images, and this is a fabulous collection of football images. As with "Ballet," the brief narratives don't add a lot; if you're a big enough fan of football to be buying a book like this, you probably know most of what it will tell you. Nonetheless, that's not really the point. The point is the pictures, and Leifer was one of the great sports photographers of all time. All of the iconic players of the era are here. I particularly enjoyed seeing alternate perspectives on famous plays and moments that we've all already seen a million times (including the deciding play of the 1967 Ice Bowl in Green Bay).

If you've got a true football history nut on your shopping list, this is a can't-miss.
