"[Mamika] is the face of the year." -The Atlantic
An uplifting, arresting, and utterly hilarious gift book showcasing the world's oldest real-life superhero: the 93-year-old grandmother and global media sensation, Mamika. Mamika has been featured in major newspapers, magazines, special interest blogs, and websites worldwide. The idea to photograph Mamika began when bestselling author and photographer Sacha Goldberger wanted to raise the spirits of his once quite spirited grandmother by engaging her in an activity they could do together. Now, countless costumes, geriatric gaffs, unbelievable stunts, and hilarious photo shoots later, the collected Mamika photographs are here to delight and inspire everyone who opens the covers of this one-of-a-kind photo book. It's perfect for the young of heart-and all ages are welcome.
Sacha Goldberger is a photographer who specializes in fashion and advertising. His previous book, The Little Book of I Love You, has sold more than 100,000 copies worldwide. His photographs of Mamika can be viewed on www.sachabada.com. He lives in France.
