The editors at LIFE vigorously carry on the traditions of excellence in photography, in journalism, and in telling the story of the world which began in 1936 by founding editor and publisher, Henry R. Luce. This book celebrates LIFE’S voyage since then.
In this deluxe commemorative edition, LIFE’S editors focus on the publication’s achievements more tightly than they ever have before: “This is truly the best of everything LIFE has accomplished. In these pages are the best war photos ever taken for LIFE; the best photo essays ever to grace our pages (including the works of Capa and Parks and Smith); the loveliest pictures from Hollywood (in fact, the best pictures of Marilyn Monroe ever taken by such as Halsmann, Eisenstaedt and her dear friend Milton Greene), the best sports pictures, the funniest pictures we ever ran. The best pictures from the space race, and the most significant pictures to the human race, including Lennart Nilsson’s ‘Life Before Birth’.” This is a premium volume of LIFE, and beyond its 200-plus pages, which include a review of every LIFE cover ever published
