Life the First Fifty Year, 1936-1986 Reviews
This appears to have a compilation of covers of each of the Life magazines, printed very small, with numerous other select pages out of some of the magazines with out specific references to which magazine issues those pages were chosen from. It is some sort of reference pertaining to all of the Life magazines in publication, via the tiny small covers, beyond that, not only who, but the motives for some of the other page selections with out specific issue references are questionable. I was looking for a reference guide, so on some levels, this serves that purpose. You might want to use a magnifying glass or jewelers loupe hand held eye piece to view those issues with, then with those dates, conduct additional research on Amazon pertaining to the issue covers, tables of contents, articles. The purposes of the article, photograph areas with out the issue date references is? I think that most people have higher expectations for a book of this sort pertaining to Life magazines.
I had this book sent to my mom who is in a nursing home. She and many of the other residents love this book. I bought it used and it was a great bargain.
Real Life died on December 29, 1972 but a rather artificial Life was born in October, 1978 as a monthly and struggled on for a few years until May, 2000 but Time still wanted to create Life and something was produced in the test tube of publishing in 2007: an extremely thin weekly inserted into local city papers. Unfortunately there just wasn't enough ad revenue to sustain Life and that was that though over the years, since 1972, there have been many special editions to celebrate a momentous event or personality.
