The Authorized Visual History
By Steve Kerridge (Author), Shannon Lee (Foreword)
Bruce Lee was instrumental in the global popularity of kung fu, and even some 40 years after his death he remains the most famous martial artist in the world. This official book—the biggest illustrated volume ever published on Lee—shows the whole of his life in images, all sourced from the extensive Lee family archives. Bruce himself was a prolific photographer and took thousands of pictures on set, with his family, and during intensive training and martial arts demonstrations. They are reproduced here, along with documents featuring excerpts from his poetry, philosophical musings, and film scripts, and a foreword by his daughter, Shannon Lee. The fan-pleasing images range from Lee's iconic, beloved theatrical poses to the previously undiscovered and never-before-published.
