On the premise that every picture tells a story, a slide must tell us a much deeper one. Buried away in the photo archive of Sports Illustrated is 50 years worth of films. This gives us a frame by frame account of sporting history over the past half-century. The scribbles and stickers that are along the border of every single slide are like those tags you would see on an old-fashioned trunk. They tell the story of the journey that photo has made from the field to the magazine. The most colorful and vibrant are brought together in this 176 strong collection, and any sports lover will want this book.
