Time: The Illustrated History of the World's Most Influential Magazine Book Review

About the Book: The history of Time—from its inception to its iconic status today—recounted by its world-famous editors, art directors, and stellar cast of contributors.

Time is a fascinating look at the history of the world's most influential newsweekly. The complete compendium is illustrated with hundreds of covers and archival photographs, featuring the work of the twentieth century's most respected journalists, editors, and photographers—from Eddie Adams, Neil Leifer, Dirck Halstead, and David Hume Kennerly, to David Burnett, Gregory Heisler, Matt Mahurin, James Nachtwey, and Diana Walker, who together won more major photo awards for Time than all other publications combined. This volume explores Time's documentation of seminal moments in history, including the moon landing, the Kennedy assassination, Vietnam, the Gulf War, and September 11th. It investigates the reasons behind Time's "Man of the Year," transitions in design, the creation of the symbolic red frame, the important designers and illustrators, the covering of both hot and soft news, as well as the magazine's changeover to the 21st century and the creation of Time's international editions.

Our Take: Time magazine is one of the most influential publications of all-time.   Time is itself a cultural icon.  It not only mirrored the greatest events of our world, but also influenced them.

This new hardcover book showcases many of the covers of Time magazine and delves into a number of their important and landmark stories over the years.  Its called an illustrated history, and it does include a lot of graphic imagery, but this is far from a coffee table book, this title includes mountains of text.  Its a real book through and through, with a ton of information and back story.

The book covers everything from World War II to President Obama.  Its an amazing book and a must-have for everyone!  We highly, highly recommend it.
