HER MAJESTY A PHOTOGRAPHIC HISTORY 1926-TODAY

CHRISTOPHER WARWICK    Book Number: 88646    Product format: Hardback

Born in 1926, married in 1947, crowned as Queen in 1953, Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II has for over six decades steadfastly and loyally carried out her duty on behalf of her country. German art publisher Taschen celebrates her remarkable royal story with a new and keenly priced edition of their collectable photography book Her Majesty, a definitive photographic collection of her public and private life. Brimming with history, tradition, glamour and culture, the book spans the Queen's early years right through to her most recent state tours and ceremonies. Along the way, we trace her coming of age during World War II; her marriage, motherhood, and coronation; her encounters with such icons of their age as the Beatles, Marilyn Monroe, and JFK; and her extensive international travels. The hundreds of spectacular photos have it all - history, politics, glamour, fashion, culture, travel, and, of course, hats. We visit the spectacular royal palaces and enjoy the infectious celebration of royal weddings and jubilees. We witness the elegance of official portraits, and the tenderness and humour of informal and family moments. As much a showcase of top photographers as a royal celebration, Her Majesty includes the work of such luminaries as Cecil Beaton, Studio Lisa, Dorothy Wilding, Karsh, Lord Snowdon, David Bailey, Patrick Lichfield, Wolfgang Tillmans, Rankin, and Annie Leibovitz. 25 x 34cm, 3.23 kg, 368 pages. Text in English, French and German. New from Taschen.
