Most all the guitars heroes are here--Clapton, Richards, Page, Raitt, and 104 others--or rather, their fave axes are. The real star is the imagery: Johnson lovingly captures the bends, curves, worn frets and wild designs on these custom guitars against black seamless. --American Photo Magazine; November/December 2013 -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine andere Ausgabe: Gebundene Ausgabe.
Über den Autor und weitere Mitwirkende
LISA S. JOHNSON grew up in an artistic family, where she fell in love with melody and imagery and pursued a career in photography. After a successful ten-year stint working at Eastman Kodak Co., she met the owner of a vintage guitar shop in Memphis and began to exclusively photograph guitars. LES PAUL (1915-2009) was a guitar player, inventor, and recording artist. He was an innovator his entire career. In 1941, he built his first solid-body electric, helping to shepherd into existence rock music as we know it today. A pioneer whose name graces some of the most beloved six-strings ever manufactured.

The photographs in this book are stunningly beautiful. They are well composed and highlight exactly what bond has formed between musician and instrument. If you delight in just the beauty and originality of these guitars, you will not be disappointed. The icing on the cake is the stories behind them.
The only weak point was in the manufacture of the book itself. For a $400 Deluxe Edition book, it was poorly assembled. Half of the pages of the book were stuck together at the edges. Upon finally getting the pages apart, the color had lifted off of the page edges. And to make matters worse, the publisher refused to make an even exchange of the damaged book. I had to jump through hoops of returning the book to the seller. Then the publisher would sell me a replacement book. Terrible for Glitteratti Press.
As to the photography, it's top notch. However, the image selection is severely lacking. Many of the guitars get detail shots that never show the whole guitar. The two tiny shots of Keith Richards' hollow body Gibson are indicative of this trend in that they mainly just show the pickguard. I don't get it. Many of the photographs have a very shallow depth of field, so even some of the details that made it into the shot are obscured. If these pictures were to be sold as frame-stuffers at Ikea, they would work just fine. As documentation of these marvelous guitars, they fall far short. The entire book is like a teaser for all the much better photos that were left out.
Two (2) softcover copies were purchased (as gifts for friends) in early September 2015. Each unit suffers from pages separating from the binding they very first time the pages are turned going through the brand new books.
Amazon was terrific and promptly shipped two new copies of the book. These also suffered from the same problem! Amazon advised they will be responsibly handling the matter by soon disabling ordering of the item and will notify the publisher of the manufacturing defect.
As I have only now just read other users' reviews posted to Amazon, this manufacturing flaw is apparently a pre-existing problem encountered by other purchasers.
Do not buy this book until the flaws with the binding have been corrected and new flawless inventory is available!!
