"Visual Aid" was inspired by the concerned musicians that came together to create "Band Aid and U.S.A for Africa", and all proceeds of the book went to fight hunger and homelessness in Africa and America. Dust Jacket shows minor shelf wear along the edges. Text is clean and unmarked with no rips, tears, creases, loose or bent pages. Spine is firm. "Visual Aid" is visually impressive any book that includes Warchol, Leibovitz, and Mapplethorne in one volume is something to see.

YA Young adults will be fascinated by this anthology of photo portraits of famous people. The book was compiled as a contribution to lifesaving programs for African and American people; the proceeds from its sale will be administered by USA for Africa. The focus of each photographer is on innovative portraiture; the results are often breathtaking. Annie Leibovitz displays her usual virtuositythe most memorable picture being Whoopie Goldberg lying in a bathtub of milk, arms and legs waving in the air. Robert Mapplethorpe and Matthew Rolston use black and white to focus the viewer's eye on texture, movement, and expression. David Bailey's photographs were all taken backstage at the London Live Aid concert. Sheila Metzner's photographs are gorgeous, flowerlike compositions. Andy Warhol contributed some of the Sure Shot originals upon which his portraits are based. Snowden literally paints with his camera. Herb Ritts' use of light and shadow takes one's breath away. Greg Gorman captures with great artistry the ``moxie'' of his subjects. Visual Aid, like Life magazine , should capture viewers' imagination, and it will be endlessly perused by the star-struck of all ages. Jennifer John Reavis, Episcopal High School, Bellaire
