Overview

The history of Time—from its inception to its iconic status today—recounted by its world-famous editors, art directors, and stellar cast of contributors.

Time is a fascinating look at the history of the world's most influential newsweekly. The complete compendium is illustrated with hundreds of covers and archival photographs, featuring the work of the twentieth century's most respected journalists, editors, and photographers—from Eddie Adams, Neil Leifer, Dirck Halstead, and David Hume Kennerly, to David Burnett, Gregory Heisler, Matt Mahurin, James Nachtwey, and Diana Walker, who together won more major photo awards for Time than all other publications combined. This volume explores Time's documentation of seminal moments in history, including the moon landing, the Kennedy assassination, Vietnam, the Gulf War, and September 11th. It investigates the reasons behind Time's "Man of the Year," transitions in design, the creation of the symbolic red frame, the important designers and illustrators, the covering of both hot and soft news, as well as the magazine's changeover to the 21st century and the creation of Time's international editions.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Rizzoli has just published a beautiful 432-page coffee-table book called TIME: The Illustrated History of the World's Most Influential Magazine. We don't quibble with the title. The book's authors, Norberto Angeletti and Alberto Oliva, spent six years doing research and have produced a book that is not only a stunning visual history of TIME but also a cultural history of the times we have lived in." ~TIME

"Here, Angeletti and Oliva (coauthors, In Vogue) gloriously showcase both the magazine and U.S. history... the book covers an amazing amount of material... Interviews with authors, designers, photographers, editors, and others lend a personal feel. VERDICT: An excellent volume for news junkies; enjoyable to both browse and read." ~Library Journal

"…readers are….likely to relish many of the book's 600 or so captivating photographs and illustrations, starting with Pope John Paul II praying at the Western Wall in 2000." ~Wall Street Journal

"...this handsome coffee-table book provides an engrossing guided tour of nearly nine decades of history as witnessed, filtered and reported by America's most celebrated weekly "news magazine.'"  ~American Profile

"It's a real book through and through, with a ton of information and back story.  Its an amazing book and a must-have for everyone!  We highly, highly recommend it." ~BookLegion.com

"...an exemplary job of capturing the deep history of both the journalistic chronicler of our times and therefore the actual history of our times itself. A major work on all fronts." ~BlogOnBooks.com

Library Journal
Founded by Henry Luce and Briton Hadden in 1923, Time is America's oldest newsweekly. Here, Angeletti and Oliva (coauthors, In Vogue) gloriously showcase both the magazine and U.S. history. Featuring interviews that enliven the stories behind journalistic and editorial decisions as well as design and technological changes, the book covers an amazing amount of material. Not surprisingly, major historical events, including the two world wars, recessions, presidential elections, and the 9/11 attacks, are covered. Also included are social issues—e.g., women's liberation, the 1999 decision to rename the magazine's annual "Man of the Year" to "Person of the Year," the Civil Rights Movement, and gay rights. Divided into three sections and then roughly by date, the book ends with chapters on Time's "Person of the Year," which has run continuously since 1927, as well as the ten best-selling issues. Interviews with authors, designers, photographers, editors, and others lend a personal feel. VERDICT An excellent volume for news junkies; enjoyable to both browse and read.—Leigh Mihlrad, Georgetown Univ. Medical Ctr. Lib., Washington, DC
