Photo-illustrated paper over boards; in b/w photo-illustrated dust jacket. With full-color and b/w photo-illustrations throughout. Inscribed to legendary New York restaurateur, Elaine Kaufman (1929-2010), "To Elaine -- The greatest -- With love, Harry / 2001." Elaine's restaurant attracted writers, editors, actors, filmmakers, artists, musicians, CEOS, cops, and robbers for 47 years. She served dinner -- and hosted late-night poker games -- to Norman Mailer, George Plimpton, Nora Ephron, Kurt Vonnegut, and more, and when they hit it big, they paid her back. Her restaurant and home were filled with artwork, photographs, memorabilia, and books from her coterie of loyal patrons. Tiny bump at top edge of front board. Dust jacket very lightly rubbed. A nice copy. Bookseller Inventory #
Synopsis: Over a glittering 50-year career, award-winning photojournalist Harry Benson has covered the central events and personalities of our time. With a range that is unequaled - from the Beatles to Bosnia, from world leaders to thousands of the most glamorous celebrities - Benson's unforgettable images have found their way onto the pages (and often the covers) of such major magazines as Life, Vanity Fair, the New Yorker, and People. Benson has a lifetime of photographs to show and stories to tell in this fabulous retrospective of his work. As John Loengard, former picture editor of Life and People, says: "He knows where it is important to go and what it is important to see. What he sees informs us all."
