è in inglese, ma la cosa ha poca importanza, perché sono le immagini che contanto, le fotografie una meglio di un'altra, fotogorafie ben stampate di buona qualità e che rappresentano un genere che gli "intellettuali" della fotgorafia tutti immersi nei Bresson e compagni ignorano, dimenticando che la fotografia è stata soprattutto un mestiere e non solo un divertimento o la rappresentazione dei grandi guai del mondo. Consiglio il libro vale il suo prezzo, l'unica cosa che non va? Niente, come al solito anche questo volume è stampato in Cina

1.0 su 5 stelle DO NOT BUY THIS BOOK!!! 8 settembre 2014
Di Georgia - Pubblicato su

If only it were possible to rate this 0 stars...that is what it deserves. I saw some warnings of poor quality images but I thought perhaps the beauty of the other offerings would outweigh those lesser pictures. As soon as I opened the darn thing I felt my heart sink and I became more and more angry as I flipped the pages. Disgusting, absolutely shocking! I could do better. In fact, you would be better off to source some of these images on the internet, print them (because your printer at home would in fact be an improvement to this shameless book), staple the pages and have a make-shift book of your own. I thought that finally the great ACJ would have a tribute deserving of his craft, but I cannot stress it enough: DO NOT BUY THIS BOOK!!!! Unless you are blind and accept cheap and nasty publishing, you won't be anything but disappointed.
4.0 su 5 stelle Phenomenal, just needs to be in a larger format... 5 giugno 2008

This is a spectacular book in every respect but one - it's size. The photos are fantastic, the layout is fantastic, the quality of its production is top drawer, everything about it is classy and well refined, but it's a downright unusual size for a book of this type, and that's why I only give it four stars.

This needed to be in a large format to fully appreciate the photos and the beautiful layout work, but instead, it's sized about the same as most hardback novels, and when you place four photos on a page of that size, the images tend to be very small and you lose the overall impact of those photos.

I highly recommend this one, get the hardback while you can before being forced into a reprint paperback, but I would've prefered the book be a sized more in keeping with most art and photography books.

5.0 su 5 stelle Ziegfeld Follies 12 febbraio 2010
Di T. Sager-Pease - Pubblicato su
Formato: Copertina rigida Acquisto verificato
This book was amazing! I enjoyed looking at all the wonderful and beautiful pictures. Mr. Johnson had a real talent in bringing out true mystery and beauty in these women. At the time these were considered "racy" if only those critics could see what pictures are like today! I wish we had more photographers like this now, a little mystery is always better than the whole package in my opinion. The eyes are drawn to the lighting, the props and back drops, jewelry dangling, the scarfs seductively placed just right. A true work of art. Also interesting were the side stories about the women and their lives. Often tragic, some surprising but always interesting! I was thrilled to find how many pictures were included so many that I had not seen before. It is a great read for anyone facinated with the era.

5.0 su 5 stelle One for your collection 15 gennaio 2007
Di Terry Norman - Pubblicato su

As one who enjoys movies from the 30's, this book helped me to enter the world of early Ziegfeld and movie beauties and their way of life. Of the photographic books I have, this one has to rank at the top. The first 62 pages (and few at the end of the book) contain text with photographs. Photo collections with text usually bore me, but this one was so interesting with details of the stories behind the women and that era, that I was dissapointed when the text ended. I have one other photo book containing women of the 20's but the photography, poses, and beauty of the women in this book surpasses the other book by a long shot. The strict physical characteristics that Ziegfeld had for his women are evident in this collection. Included in this collection is Miss Universe from 1926. I wondered to myself if they stripped her of her crown for posing nude? This book also provides excellent examples of the use of lines when posing the female subject. The book refers to it as the "Line of Beauty". If one enjoys the history and images of that era, this is a must have book that won't dissapoint. A superbly bound hardbook with mainly full page images of excellent quality.

My one sad point of the book was to learn that there are boxes full of more of Johnston's images that someone is holding on to with plans to sell individually and deny the world to see them as a collection.

Browsing through this book of incredibly gorgeous jazz age beauties is like entering an art museum of timeless classics from the art deco era. The style and artistic quality of these photographs is nothing short of amazing. It kind of makes you wish that you lived during that incredible era when art, music, fashion, style, and beauty were all the rage. Bring the art gallery to your door, and buy this book of classic beauties from the jazz age ... it's a real treasure that will only get better with time.
