Regular price $18.50 Sale

Bettmann Moments captures in one lustrous volume the indelible images of the twentieth century-from young John F. Kennedy, Jr.'s salute to his fallen father, Marilyn Monroe posed above the subway grating, and Amelia Earhart in aviation gear to classic shots of everyday people doing distinctly everyday things. Incorporating an enormous range of genres, the collection features Hollywood icons and world-class sports heroes, momentous historical events and unforgettable cultural figures, and international landmarks like Egypt's Khufu's Pyramid and Nevada's Hoover Dam. Published to commemorate the birth of Otto Bettmann, one of the world's first and most revered photographic archivists, this treasury of extraordinary images offers a rare glimpse at the century's triumphs and tragedies, and provides a loving portrait of a multifaceted, deeply complex global culture. This 2003 Barnes & Noble Books Hardback is in Near Mint condition.
