Century...

cover Picked up this book in the Tate Gallery bookshop a few weeks ago and have been reading it: "Century: One Hundred Years of Human Progress, Regression, Suffering and Hope". It's a small, very thick picture book (1236 pages) of the last century. It's a fascinating browse. There's about ten pictures for every year and a write-up for each picture explaining it's context. This mini-edition is less than £10 which makes it a bargain or there's a larger edition for about £30. Some pictures are humourous while many are disturbing and chilling. It leaves you in a bit of awe of the immense changes and struggles of the last hundred years. Highly recommended.
