Product summary

Item #274347 (in stock)

Few male stars in any medium carried a visual punch like Frank Sinatra. Photographs capture not only his ineffable sense of style, but also his aura of vulnerability, intensity, sexuality, and charm. Sinatra: The Photographs focuses on the decades after the war, when he towered over the American entertainment landscape. These were the years of the Rat Pack and Las Vegas, socializing with Jack Kennedy and Marilyn Monroe, and making music with Nelson Riddle, Count Basie, and Quincy Jones. Featured is the best work by a group of photographers who helped shape the public image of Sinatra: Ted Allan, Bob Willoughby, Ed Thrasher, Sid Avery, and Bernie Abramson. Photographs by these men form the nucleus of the images gathered in this book, which are accompanied by illuminating commentary on Sinatra by the people who knew him best.

    from Interlaken, NJ:

    It was a birthday gift for my 82 year old mother in law. It was her favorite of all of her gifts. She is a Sinatra nut. She met him once and she spoke to him once so not only does she love his music. She was always enamored of the blue eyed man. Well worth the money. Quite large, so it's perfect for the coffee table. Good job. But once again I mention a pair of 2 oz. earrings that I bought about a month before and although this was a heavy book, it was half the postage. THAT MAKES ME CRAZY!
