Este libro esta lleno de fotos soberbias sobre la realidad del mundo en toda su crudeza y a todo color. Slim Aarons es el mejor fotógrafo de la historia. Esta obra debe estar en toda biblioteca pública o privada que se precie de contar con las mejores obras editoriales. En el futuro tendrá el mismo valor que hoy tienen los manuscritos medievales ilustrados.
It's a wonderful book, very nostalgic, incredible imagery of a rare glimpse into the 60s jet set. I do think it's odd... and I've paged through the book 4 or 5 times.. the amazing photograph on the book's cover, isn't in the book? Maybe not in my version, but I thought that was a bit odd. Typically it'd be included in the book. Many of the photos span 2 pages leaving the page break / binding in the middle of the image. I love the images and wish the book was large for every image to remain on a single page. But this is a minor complaint, very subjective. The photography and subjects are worth every second.
Slim Aarons creates the perfect gift for that special hostess in the Hamptons, Palm Beach, Naples or Nantucket. Aarons displays the beautiful lives of the beautiful people in an era when the priviledged were unapologetic for their good fortune. His books are unique and unavailable in stores. You really must make an effort to purchase them, which makes them a very special gift for the uninitiated. Aarons wrote several - if possible order all. They are beautifully bound, large cocktail table books, irresistable for the browser. I order them in multiples.
A must have coffee table book. A wee bit of overlap with Aarons "Once Upon a Time" - photograph wise... but who cares. A chronicle of the lives/lifestyle of the rich and famous of a past era. Very very entertaining and jsut plain beautiful.
