Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Music and photography have always shared a special relationship—when an iconic musician is portrayed by a first-rate photographer, the result is often transformative and transcendent, and a classic pop culture image is born. Music Box gathers more than 340 such legendary photographs of musicians—covering the stars of jazz, blues, rock and roll, soul, and all of their contemporary offshoots.

Music Box is arranged in thematic chapters that look at the music scene from a witty and fresh perspective, collecting photographs such as Philippe Halsmans seminal portrait of Louis Armstrong, Jim Marshalls vision of Jimi Hendrix kneeling over his burning guitar, Annie Leibovitzs anthemic shot of Bruce Springsteen leaping in front of the American flag, and many more. It is an amazing collection of memorable photographs in an irresistible package.

Synopsis:

The miniskirt. A crisp, white button-down shirt. The enigmatic trench coat. All key wardrobe pieces that are accessible and never lose their appeal. Fashion Box, in the appealing format of the successful Photo:Box, celebrates 16 of these essential items and showcases photographs of the iconic women who wore them well: Marilyn Monroe and jeans. Ursula Andress and the bikini. Grace Kelly and the twinset. Also included are the celebrities who continue to reinterpret and redefine these classics today, among them Angelina Jolie, Sarah Jessica Parker, and Scarlett Johansson. Practical as well as entertaining, this book offers tips and inspiration for dressing with effortless style.
