About the Book

Bibliographic Details

Title: Picture Post - 1938-50

Publisher: Penguin

Binding: Soft cover

Book Condition: Very Good


. Penguin, 1970, 1st edn; trade paperback in laminated card covers, in mint condition but for one fold on the back cover; 288pp; Picture Post is not only one of the great success stories of journalism; it is also a part of history. Started, without much confidence, in 1938, it rapidly won a place in the public's affections, its sales rising at the peak of its success to well over a million copies a week. Picture Post brought together a team of brilliant cameramen, and of writers - Anne Scott-James, Honour Balfour, Maurice Edelman, Kenneth Allsop, James Cameron among them - and developed a unique style, combining profound social concern with gaiety of spirit. It could be serious without solemnity and light-hearted without descending into the flippant and trivial. Picture Post's editor in its great years, Tom Hopkinson, has written an introduction, and this selection, reproduced from the original pages, includes specially commissioned 'hindsight' articles to form a brilliant documentary and record of an extraordinary era; 11¾x8½". . . . .
