Bestselling author and editor DAVID ELLIOT COHEN has created or coauthored numerous large-format illustrated books that have collectively sold more than 5 million copies. Most were in the hugely popular Day in the Life and America 24/7 photography book series, and four have been New York Times best-sellers. Cohen has been profiled in almost every major periodical and many television news programs. His most recent book, What Matters: The world’s preeminent photojournalists and thinkers depict essential issues of our time, was just published by Sterling Publishing in 2008.
MARK GREENBERG has been a photographer for more than 30 years; after working with a major metropolitan newspaper and then AP, he founded his own photo agency, Visions. Greenberg has won World Press Photo awards and was nominated for a Pulitzer Prize for feature photography for his story on the Voyager aircraft. His work has appeared in nearly every major publication worldwide, including LIFE and National Geographic.From School Library Journal:
This "commemorative album" could serve as a somewhat basic pathfinder to the Obama newspaper record online. Some 120 front pages are shown in full color, captioned with their web addresses, from only the following dates: August 29, 2008 (Obama's nomination acceptance); November 5, 6, and 7, 2008 (his election); and January 21, 2009 (the inauguration). Pull quotes in a large font are offered on neighboring pages in some cases. There's also the full text of five Obama speeches: announcing his candidacy; accepting the nomination; speaking after his election victory; his inaugural address; and, oddly placed after the inauguration, his speech in March 2008 on the Reverend Wright and race. There's no listing of the newspapers included and no rationale offered for why these particular ones were chosen. The selection is worldwide, so several are not in English (only the banner headlines are translated). With insufficient apparatus to make this a reference tool, it's an optional selection.—MH
