Gold Gato, May 30, 2015 (view all comments by Gold Gato)
Angus McBean was one of the most important portrait photographers of the last century, establishing his reputation with the English stage stars. In this marvelous collection, McBean's professional work is broken up between stage productions, opera/dance, portraits, and montage shots. They are all very crisp and the detail is excellent. This is long before the days of digital photography and Photoshop, so when he needed to have Vivien Leigh portrayed as Aurora, it meant he actually had to build a real cast of plaster for her dress with pinned cloud wisps placed in front of her. This type of work took days, whereas now we could do it in minutes.

This is another great production from publisher David R. Godine. Paper is high quality, the book is a coffee table item without being overwhelming, and the prints were well-chosen, not easy when McBean shot so many pictures. It's set in Monotype Bulmer which looks good against the white background. Very good.

Book Season = Autumn (some weird stuff)
