Legends is an art book; displaying noted celebrities from the past century. It is a fun read, but more of a coffee table book for the star and starlet buff. The photographs are good, taking from nearly a full page to even double page spreads, but it is the captions that go with them that had the most appeal to me. Some photos are themselves famous, while others show well-known people in their not so-well-known lives. The captions are comments about the subject, often by their peers but occasionally by themselves. Not only does this give you a new insight to the person photographed, but to the speaker as well. I particularly liked the examples where person A comments on person B only to find elsewhere in the book person B commenting on person A! A lady friend of mine, who has this book, tore the full-page picture of Katharine Hepburn and the accommodating full-page caption with it. The caption quoted Hepburn on how she lived her life: " . . . I've just done what I D___ well wanted to . . . " My friend hung these up in her apartment to inspire herself.
