This is a delightful book – over 300 pictures depicting many aspects of Queen Elizabeth II’s life and reign. It’s beautifully laid out and printed. The photos are carefully chosen and arranged year-by-year from 1926 until 2012. They show many aspects of Elizabeth’s life, including her family life, and explain the role of the monarch. So it’s a biography-in-pictures and includes photos of her jewellery, regalia, gifts from heads of state and family and friends, her gowns, official documents and much more.
I’m surprised how much information has been artfully fit into this book- 144 pages. It’s an album of pictures with detailed captions, not a text book. But as someone once said, ‘One picture is worth a thousand words.’ This book proves it. Study these images and you’ll find out a lot about the woman on the throne.
