The United States of America with National Geographic

A grand tour of the USA through the magazine’s rich archives
Travel through time and across the country with this state-by-state tour of the United States over the past 100 years. Following on from the critically acclaimed National Geographic: Around the World in 125 Years, the volume brings together more than 700 captivating images from the magazine’s illustrious archives to chart a century of change and growth from Alabama to Wyoming.

State by state, these remarkable images bring a vivid account of a vast, evolving, and diverse country, from breathtaking landscapes to advancing industry, evocative rural life to burgeoning towns and cities. We travel from the ski slopes of Colorado to the jazz bars of New Orleans, from the luxurious Hollywood Hills to a barbershop in Kentucky, and from Manhattan’s Chinatown to a river baptism in Mississippi. Along the way, the tour takes in the gamut of photographic evolution, shifting from early black-and-white and autochrome images of the 1920s and 1930s into midcentury Kodachrome, then the harder-edged reportage of the 1970s and 1980s, and finally the digital images of the 1990s through to the present.

With an introductory essay by photography editor David Walker, as well as prefaces to each state section and fascinating storytelling captions, this book celebrates not only the world’s greatest photography magazine but also the people, history, and beauty of the United States in all its kaleidoscopic glory.

High-level manufacture, fine materials and impeccable printing, all enclosed by a beautiful packaging. It weight “only” 12 kilograms, splendid.

Top quality

Fabrizio, October 27, 2021
This book set is awesome. The two books are big so the photos printed inside are also big as they should be in a photobook and the quality of material used is great. I like that the two books come with an outer box to take them out as a protection. Overall is a very good product.

I wanted to have this book absolutely

Eine Reise durch Zeit und Raum

Thilo, December 10, 2021
Dieser Fotoband besticht vor allem dadurch, dass sowohl alle Staaten mit ihren Besonderheiten fotografisch hervorgehoben werden, aber zudem auch mit der zeitlichen Komponente gearbeitet wird. So erscheinen durchaus einige Ikonische Bilder.

Zeitreise durch die USA

Jean, October 29, 2021
Das 13 Kilo Buch - oder besser: Die zwei Bücher - steckt man nicht so leicht in die Tasche. Ein gigantisches XXL-Werk mit vielen Porträts von Mensch und Land gibt zahlreiche Einblicke in alle Staaten.
Manche Aufnahmen rauben einem den Atem beim Anblick der scheinbar grenzenlosen Naturlandschaften.
Beim Durchblättern der beiden Schwergewichte (am besten auf passender Taschen-Buchstütze) geht es auf Zeitreise durch die USA. Ein wunderbares Fotobuch und Geschichtsbuch.
