Best of Condé Nast Traveler, ever

A book destined to travel you around the world in large format, Condé Nast Traveler Photographs: 25th Anniversary Collection is a well-constructed, hardcover book that will make your life prettier. This stunning retrospective of pure wanderlust is the newest entry in Assouline’s Condé Nast Traveler series. Showcasing a selection of Condé Nast Traveler’s most stunning photographs from the past quarter century by renowned photographers such as Helmut Newton, David LaChapelle, and Brigitte Lacombe the book features more than 250 pages with an additional 25 large fold-outs featuring stunning large photographs.  The text is laid out in an easy-to-read, large font that goes well with the subtle maps pinpointing the location of each image within its area of the world whilst the images cover a diverse range of style, looks, tones, topics , and photographer. “The images are divided into 4 broad topics: Moments, Monuments, Lives, and Landscapes.  In addition to the fine array of images, each of the sections includes a short essay by several accomplished writers on such topics as Architecture, Portraits, and even on Helmut Newton, and why how he came to be a contributor with the magazine…. These writings give a fresh and unique bit of perspective and background into the creation of the images and the circumstances which surrounded the time at which they were produced.  I enjoyed these so much that I would love to see a book featuring more of these” reports Joe Azure’s.
