Album for an Age Summary

Album for an Age: Unconventional Words and Pictures from the Twentieth Century by Art Shay

A delightful, thoughtful, and sometimes wacky sightseeing tour of many of the major personalities and events of the last fifty years by one of America's liveliest photographers for Life, Time, and other assignments. "Not a picture book, but a book with pictures. Art Shay's photography shakes you up, sets you down gently, pats you on the head, and then kicks you in the ass. Shay doesn't see through the camera lens but beyond it, to the truth of his photographs." - Roger Ebert. "Art Shay is one of our truest photographers. His work over the past fifty years has artfully captured the beauty, humor, and pathos of America." - Studs Terkel. This book contains an introduction by Garry Wills and is heavily illustrated.

About Art Shay

After flying combat missions in World War II, Art Shay took a job as a staff reporter at Life. There he wrote a hundred anonymous stories and did time in New York, Washington, San Francisco, and Chicago, finally leaving to pursue his early love, the camera. He was soon shooting pictures regularly for Time, Life, Fortune, the Saturday Evening Post, Forbes, Business Week, Parade, and the New York Times Magazine. Mr. Shay s photographs sell for fancy prices in galleries, and they have appeared in more than seventy books, many of them for children. He lives in Deerfield, Illinois.
