Woah, serious quality book. Maybe they'll also unearth some 'unseens' for us. About time Magnum! What took you so long?

Will be an amazing book of photos but......... never have been keen on that Eve Arnold shot even though i do love her photos. The text also looks cheap but hey...... its whats on the inside that counts!!

I'd like to see this book at a bookstore before I decide if I'm going to get it or not. Scans would help too, if someone buys this and is able to scan (IMG:http://www.everlasting-star.net/boards/style_emoticons/default/smile1.gif)

My copy just arrived. It's rather short, but lovely. While I haven't checked the Magnum website in a while, so can't verify rarities, quite a few pics looked new or different to me. The selection of Halsman photos is great, and there are a couple of lovely Dennis Stock pics from Bus Stop, Inge Morath from The Misfits, plus a stunning Bob Henriques from Ebbets Field that I personally haven't seen before. Others were more familiar, of course (especially Eve Arnold, whose work with MM, while stunning, has been amply documented elsewhere.) There is very little text, just a short essay at the start and photographer bios at the end. I would have liked more info on the photos, when and where they were taken, photographers' comments etc. The book could have been much longer, considering how vast and high quality the Magnum archive is, that's my main criticism. On the other hand, they have chosen their photos well. So I definitely recommend this if you like the Magnum style of photojournalism, but hopefully in the future they might consider publishing a more comprehensive book on Marilyn.

I agree with Tara.
This is a lovely book, and very reasonably priced.
I particularly liked the well observed and well written introductory text; and the inclusion of many 'candid' pictures which were possibly out-takes!

And now I know the source of my signature picture!

Just read the one review on Amazon.co.uk and thought 'Hmm that is very familiar'. I see it is you! Good review. I do love the Magnum photos though I will likely all feel your frustration over the lack of detail. May have to put it on my birthday list. Thanks Tara.

Its fantastic!! i do however wish they had use the back cover photo as the front cover photo!

There is a mistake though with the dates of the Haslam photos. Says some of the 1959 dates are 1954!! I hate it when that happens. Only had a quick look through this morning. Some lovely shots. Mostly ones we have seen before but so so lovely to have them in this delightful book.

It is well worth the money!

I also noticed that the Bob Henriques photos from Ebbets Field are described as being from 1959, when we all know here that it was 1957!

Not all scans but many (IMG:http://www.everlasting-star.net/boards/style_emoticons/default/biggrin.gif)
I don't scan Eve Arnold's pictures that we know already! I'm sure there are certainly other variants! (IMG:http://www.everlasting-star.net/boards/style_emoticons/default/yay.gif)
Much other pictures are know...

It is indeed a pity they didn't use different variants (IMG:http://www.everlasting-star.net/boards/style_emoticons/default/rolleyes1.gif)

But beautiful photos nonetheless, thanks for your scans Eric (IMG:http://www.everlasting-star.net/boards/style_emoticons/default/clapping.gif)
