UNITED STATES WITH NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC. Jeff Z. Klein et al. Benedikt Taschen Verlag GmbH, Cologne, 2016. 932 pp. 38 x 27 cm. ISBN 9783836561556 In English.
Due date: November 2016. This title is offered as a special-order item. Publisher's description: It was a bold, controversial move, which alienated the old guard, delighted readers, and signaled the future of image-led mass-market media. In 1905, National Geographic magazine, then barely 30 years old, elected to run a pictorial spread about life in Tibet. Ignoring the scandalized splutters from the more staid board members of the National Geographic Society, Editor Gilbert Hovey Grosvenor and President Alexander Graham Bell went on to build a team of staff photographers. By 1910, the magazine was regularly featuring photography, affording its readers an armchair view of lands, peoples, and cultures worldwide. Naturally, the magazine's home country, the United States was amply documented from the outset, and in this new TASCHEN book, we travel back in time with National Geographic's extensive archives to take a state by state tour of the United States over the past 100 years. Following on from the critically acclaimed National Geographic: Around the World in 125 Years, the collection brings together several hundred captivating images to chart a century of change and growth from Alabama to Wyoming, Alaska to Wisconsin.
