    1. Okay, so Norman Parkinson's work has always been worthy of five stars.That being saidThis collection shows us nothing new. As someone who owns a few of his books, I remember about 80% of the photos presented here. And the actual book is small — definitely not the large coffee table tome I was expecting. I'd recommend getting his other books. which are bigger and display his photographs more appropriately.A disappointment.

    2. Norman Parkinson was one of the most amazing photographers. His career spanned from the 1930s through the 1980s and he worked with many of the biggest celebrities throughout the decades. His work was artistic, clear, symmetrical, and showed a mastery of light. This book exhibits his talents, with a foreword by Iman.

    3. A very interesting book giving an interesting overview of Norman Parkinson's life and works broken down into decades. Some great pictures a lot of which you will recognise.
