Frank Sinatra was an entertainer of mesmerizing talent, charisma and style. As well as being one of the bestselling musical artists of all time, he was an Academy Award-winning actor who starred in over sixty movies, and a cultural icon of seismic influence. Created in close collaboration with the Sinatra family and Frank Sinatra Enterprises, this momentous book captures the man in public and private, with exclusive unseen photographs and memorabilia from the family archives, as well as the most iconic images, outtakes and contact sheets from celebrated photo shoots. In candid accounts from his closest friends and associates, a portrait emerges of a man who was intensely loyal to his friends, enthusiastically devoted to charity and who demonstrated exceptional stamina and resilience in a career that spanned an incredible six decades. The result is a captivating tribute to one of the best-loved performers the world has ever known, in a large-format presentation every bit as swanky and swoonsome as the man himself.
