This sleek anthology of iconic images is a nostalgic delight for photography and history buffs. By leaving the book virtually free of text, the editors allow the images to speak for themselves. Classic moments are beautifully reproduced: Margaret Bourke-White's portrait of Mahatma Gandhi, the Apollo 11 launch, the Black Power salute at the 1968 Olympics, various Kennedy campaign trails, Princess Diana's wedding—as well as whimsical snapshots of Americana and stunning photographs of painters Pollock, Dalí and Picasso. Removable prints allow readers to enjoy even better the collection's vivid, high-quality pictures. (Oct.)
