The celebration of the 100th anniversary of Frank Sinatra's birth continues with the new hardcover book Sinatra 100.
Thames & Hudson will publish the 288 page book on October 6, covering the life and career of the music and film icon.
Produced with the participation of the Sinatra family and the cooperation of Frank Sinatra Enterprises, and drawing on their vast personal archives, this stunning book is an intimate and dramatic visual portrait of the greatest entertainer of the 20th century, revealing many previously unseen moments in a remarkable life through more than 400 photographs, about half of which have not been seen previously.
Including forewords by Steve Wynn and Tony Bennett and afterwords by Nancy Sinatra, Frank Sinatra, Jr., and Tina Sinatra, Sinatra 100 covers all of the singer's life and work, from his birth (December 12, 1915) to his early big band years; from inciting bobby-soxer riots in the 1940s to his storied recording and film careers; and from the Rat Pack to his world tours. Text based on personal interviews and conversations with Sinatra, his friends, family, and colleagues complements the book's spectacular imagery to create a tribute unparalleled in its scope and depth.
Author Charles Pignone said 'Throughout Frank's life, no one even resembled him. There are no artists currently on the scene that are capable of duplicating his extraordinary career. Time only increases his importance and stature. Frank Sinatra's music is still relevant because in it we discover how our lives evolved, as did his.'
