Reviews - What do customers think about Surfing: Vintage Surfing Graphics (Icons)?

Fantastic collection of surfing images  Jan 7, 2008
Surfing - Vintage Surfing Graphics traces the evolution of surfing icons through the entire twentieth century. Up until around 1960, surfing was an esoteric sport that barely touched the consciousness of people not living on a few select coastlines. Then surfing exploded to become a cultural phenomenon that captivated almost the entire world. Jim Heimann's book goes a long way toward explaining how this obscure sport grew to prominence. These images from magazines, advertisements, movies, postcards, and travel brochures vividly communicated the carefree excitement of surfing as a way of life that everyone wished they could enjoy.

If you want a fun afternoon, compare these images to twentieth century Communist icons and graphics. Both were selling a way of life. Maybe it tells us something about human nature that the surfing lifestyle continues to appeal and grow in popularity all over the world.

One last thing: for an inexpensive book, the production quality is exceptional. This is also a great companion book to Leroy Grannis: Surf Photography of the 1960s and 1970s

Whether you are interested in surfing, graphics, or cultures, you won't be disappointed in Surfing - Vintage Surfing Graphics.
