A proud history This is a beautiful book commemorating 50 years since Stonewall and it is interesting to see how far we have come (or haven’t!). Fred McDarrah published a book 25 years ago to celebrate that anniversary and this is a reset version with some new photographs. The strength of the book is obviously the amazing images but the words make a deep impact too. The need to fight back against the oppression, corruption and underground status afforded gay and lesbian people comes over loud and clear – and…
Not quite sure what I expected, but I had hoped for more information other than simply images. This isn’t dissing the author/publisher, but I expected text and pictures. I got a lot of the latter and too little of the former to allow me to fully appreciate the Stonewall riots. And, images are small and with a lot of characters whose names I didn’t recognise. Maybe I’d have appreciated this more had the subjects been more prominent, and more info about them given.ARC courtesy of OR books and NetaGalley, for my reading pleasure.
A good coffee table book! This is an interesting collection of photos and stories. I enjoyed McDarrah’s photographs and the accompanying tales of those in the photo. This is a great coffee table book.
