Live It Again 1951: Newest book in series
Live It Again 1951 is part of a collection of nostalgia publications and is the seventh book featuring the events of the 1950s.
The book includes hundreds of authentic photos, illustrations and cartoons from 1951, with accompanying captions that contain interesting facts and trivia of the time. Televised variety and game shows and top radio hits are highlighted, along with favorite sporting teams and news from the Korean War.
Much of the material in Live It Again comes from issues of The Saturday Evening Post as published in 1951. Many of the images are being reprinted for the first time since they were originally published more than 50 years ago.
The imagery and information provide a historic look at the fashions and styles that defined the culture of the day, along with music, sports and movie stars. There are also familiar old advertisements, cartoons, images and bits of trivia that trigger memories from America's past.
Barb Sprunger is the book's editor. She joined the Annie's editorial team in 1997, working closely with Editor Ken Tate on Good Old Days and Looking Back magazines and the entire nostalgia book series. She has been part of the Live It Again team since the beginning of the series, and in June 2010, became editor of the series.
Each edition in the Live It Again series focuses on a different year as the publishers of Good Old Days recapture one of America's most significant decades -- the decade of the 1950s.
The series is available through the Live It Again website at LiveItAgain.com.
