CHICAGO (CBS) — Chicago has never had its own photo book, until now…
Picture editors, Richard Cahan and Michael Williams organized a collection of photos taken by Chicago’s most important photographers and created a book, Chicago: Classic Photographs.
The book contains 225 images showing all aspects of Chicago, from its architecture and landscape to its rich, cultural neighborhoods.
“This is a book for people who love Chicago and for visitors who want something special to remember her by. It is filled with classic photographs that defy time — timeless pictures of a changing city,” the editors wrote in a statement.
For the first time, a book is featuring photos from the city’s most important photographers – Harry Callahan, Aaron Siskind, Art Shay.
Cahan and Williams chose photos going back more than a century to show a city that is both “well-known and surprising.”
All books ordered are signed by the authors.
The book comes in a hardcover design with 240 pages. The retail price of the book is $39.95 and the online price is $35 plus tax and shipping.
