In a nut shell it presents some of the most famed actors, musicians, artists, writers, athletes, and businesspeople of our time. And is available in four different cover photos, with an equally beautiful tripod bookstand designed Marc Newson that demands its own space in your home! … I’m still trying to find the perfect spot for it!
Just a few words about Annie Leibovitz for those of you who might not know much about her. Leibovitz is one of the most important if not the most important portrait photographers working today. In this book she collected photographs from over 40 years of her work, starting with the intimate reportage she created for the Rolling Stone magazine in the 1970s and to the more stylized work for Vanity Fair and Vogue. She has presented her famous group portraits in a format that proved that she is the master of the genre. Her pictures are intimate yet iconic, they are uniquely hers. Annie Leibovitz is often imitated, particularly by young photographers, but her work is always immediately recognizable.
The Collector’s Edition is available in four different covers:
