Overview

If every picture tells a story, every slide tells an even deeper one. Tucked away in Sports Illustrated's photo archive sits 50 years worth of film, a frame-by-frame depiction of the history of sports over the last half a century. The stickers and scribbles along a single slide's border are like tags on a streamer trunk, telling the story of that photo's journey from the playing field to the magazine.

Overview

If every picture tells a story, every slide tells an even deeper one. Tucked away in Sports Illustrated's photo archive sits 50 years worth of film, a frame-by-frame depiction of the history of sports over the last half a century. The stickers and scribbles along a single slide's border are like tags on a streamer trunk, telling the story of that photo's journey from the playing field to the magazine. This book selects the most colorful of these slides and presents the mounts as objects of art in an oversized 176-page collection, complete with behind-the-scenes vignettes of how the shots came to be. Some slides capture classic SI cover images (Dwight Clark's catch in the 1982 NFC Championship Game or Brandi Chastain ripping her shirt off at the 1999 World Cup) while others are simply great photos (Pete Rose running at full speed or Joe Namath lounging poolside before Super Bowl III). The images themselves are iconic, but by seeing them as slides you get that extra step back. You can see the history that has been made from these flashes of an instant.

    Beautifly Layed Out! One of the best issues ever!!!!

    When I first glanced at the book I didn't think it would be anything all that special, then before I knew it, I was turning to one of my favorite figures, then another and yet another. Most times, I will flip through a book or SI Magazine, Read the bold type at the beginning of a colum or story of some sort and if it couldn't keep my attention after a just a few lines then I would move on to the next page. Two words that I would use sum up how I feel about this book, Entertaining & Informative. That kind of combination is rare to find these days. Filled with so many things that people may very well not know about their favorite team or player. Entertainingly informative. Love It!!!!

    Brings back memories of old

    When I was a young photog, Sports Illustrated was the bible (as was National Geographic,) and this book brings those old school images back to life. When chromes were king, the images produced were the building blocks of sports photos as we know them. To see them brought back to life, with the explanations of how they were produced, makes me yearn for the "life's bright colors of Kodachrome."(RIP)
    These iconic slides described the history of sport as we know it, and the comments about the shooters and how they came to be.
    I use it in my classroom to jump start my students and even myself. I have one of my film cameras loaded with slide film as we speak.
    A must for every serious photog for their coffee table.
