Overview

A legendary life shown in rare, mostly never before published photographs

Arguably the most famous woman of the century, certainly one of its most photographed, Jacqueline Bouvier Kennedy Onassis lived an astonishing life; her popularity and the fascination she held for people the world over during her nearly sixty years in the spotlight can hardly be overestimated. And while that has led to a number of books about her, none has told her life story in the way this one does—entirely in photographs, from birth to death, with lively, anecdotal extended captions.

Of the 251 photographs in this book, 165 have never been published, 58 have rarely been published (in newspapers or magazines but never in book form), and 28 are inescapable images that have been seared into the memories of everyone. Together with the text that runs alongside them, these pictures tell the story of an American life that became legendary even while it was being lived, a story that will speak afresh to the hearts of all Americans.

Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
More than 200 photographs -- some never before published -- tell the story of the elegant Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis. Follow Jackie's transformation from a cultured child of privilege to the intelligent, charming first lady who stole our hearts. The photographs illuminate Jackie's many roles, as well as occasionally chronicling historic moments, such as the aftermath of JFK's tragic assasination.
Alonso Duralde
With most of its photos never published before, this cradle-to-grave retrospective of one of the 20th century's most public lives does justice to its subject as well as its readers.
—The Advocate
From the Publisher

"Ranging from a Christmas portrait of baby Jackie in her mother's arms to her iconic roles as First Lady, shipping tycoon's wife and working woman, and culminating with a heart-stopping image of John Jr. and Caroline beside their mother's casket, these 251 black and white photos (many never published before) capture her well-lived, much-photographed life in adoring detail"--Publishers Weekly
