Editor: Bruce Bernard; Format: Hardcover; ISBN: 0714842796; Publisher: Phaidon Press; Release Date: 2002; List Price: 19.95; Length: 1236 pages; Other: Illustrated; Edition: MINI, Reprint. Condition: Very Good. Cover is still in overall great shape. Pages are clean and intact, but binding has loosened from weight of pages (could use some book glue for reinforcement). Same cover design as that shown here.
With over 1,200 pages and nearly 1,000 images, this extraordinary volume offers an informative, intimate and incisive insight into the twentieth century from the very beginning to the very end. Century is an extensive historical trajectory through the twentieth century, told through an eclectic yet exhaustive sequence of monumental photographic images. More than any other before it, the twentieth century was one of unforeseeable advances, discoveries and victories as well as unanticipated atrocities and suffering. It was also the first century to have been documented entirely through the lens of the camera. The chronological journey of Century--in a visually stunning sequence of images--takes us from the end of Queen Victoria's reign, through the antics of Buster Keaton and the odyssey into outer space, to the fall of the Berlin Wall and the news of September 11. Assimilated from diverse sources across the world, the photographs are instantly arresting and tirelessly thought-provoking. Selected for their capacity to expose distinctly human stories with the dynamism that drives historical change, the tome combines iconic images with photographs previously unseen, from international political events to highly personal and anonymous vignettes. Each photograph is substantiated by a brief but thorough historical explanation; every single scene is brought to life by evocative literary and political quotations. Century is as much an historical tour de force as it is an enlightening visual celebration of the past from a vast range of angles.
