Book of the week: Her Majesty
Celebrating 90 years
Taschen has released a new edition of Her Majesty to commemorate Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II's 90th birthday. A pictorial book filled with stunning images, the book charts the life of a Queen who has sat on the throne for more than 50 years.
From her early formative years and her coronation, to her family life and her recent stately undertakings, the book captures the Queen at her best, her most candid as well as during her most tender moments when she's with close family. Also included are images of the grand events and celebrations where she's in attendance alongside famous personalities including JFK, Marilyn Monroe and The Beatles.
More than just a story-telling picture book, Her Majesty is also testament to the artistic mastery of iconic photographers – Cecil Beaton, Rankin, Annie Leibovitz – who have managed to capture what few have perhaps seen.
