Empire of Images — An Iconic Photos Book

icon_cover

Over the past five years, I have published a lot of posts here at Iconic Photos.

Blogs are transient. Internet is transient. Last year, I was logged out of Iconic Photos by WordPress for some ad infraction which taught me this lesson pretty well. So, without further ado, I decided to transfer the blog into a solid door-stopper of a book.

And Empire of Images is born.

The book is first and foremost a coffee-table history of Long Twentieth Century™ (Paris Commune of 1870 to 2008 Financial Crisis), seen through a series of my blog posts, but with additional next content to link and contextualize them. Therefore, the chapter on pre-war Europe will be an essay on Hitler through these posts. Chapter 16, on Vietnam, will be a tour de force photojourney from Dien Bien Phu through immolations and executions all the way to America’s ignominious retreat from Saigon.

You can preorder the book from Amazon or through my publishers at Roallipof Publishing starting 1st of April. [Click Through to Enlarge the photos].

  1. Very nice…
    A book is something tangible, a pleasant object to touch as for the eyes.
    Did you have some problems with the rights of some Photos ?
    Thank you again…

  2. Hi there! This article could not be written any better!
    Looking at this post reminds me of my previous roommate!
    He always kept talking about this. I most certainly will forward this post to him.
    Pretty sure he’s going to have a good read. Many thanks for
    sharing!

  3. I was skimming back through your old pages and I see that this book was mentioned, but as far as I can see it was never published. Is the April 1 date the g ive away? If it was published how can I get a copy?
