Book of the week: Barbra: Streisand’s Early Years in Hollywood
The meteoric rise of the 70s superstar
Working to capture "the real Barbra", Steve Schapiro and Lawrence Schiller – two leading photojournalists of the 70s – followed the superstar during her first five years in Hollywood through her journey into the film industry, which has now been published by Taschen in Barbra: Streisand’s Early Years in Hollywood.
Loaded with photographs of Barbra Streisand – over half of which have never been published before – and stories behind the images from Schapiro and Schiller, this new book is a must-have collection for any fan of the American icon. The book features all the best Hollywood movies Streisand starred in, from Funny Girl and On a Clear Day You Can See Forever to The Way We Were and The Owl and the Pussycat.
Limited to a total of 1,200 numbered copies signed by Schapiro and Schiller, the new tome is available as a collector's edition, and also in two art editions of 100 copies each.
Barbra: Streisand’s Early Years in Hollywood is available online and at select boutiques worldwide now
