She is the longest reigning monarch in British history and longest serving female head of state in history, but these facts do not explain the iconic, even unique stature of Queen Elizabeth II.
Written by longtime BBC correspondent Jennie Bond, who has been covering the royal family since 1989, Elizabeth is a fascinating chronological remembrance in words and pictures of the beloved monarch and the extraordinary people, events and changes of her reign.
The binding is premium leather, specially selected for beauty and permanence and features a raised “hubbed” spine and 22ct gold titles and decorations. The brilliantly reproduced new and vintage photographs are preserved on acid-neutral paper formulated to reveal every detail of these radiant images and to not turn brittle with age.
Moreover, the pages are not merely glued into the binding but Smyth-sewn with sturdy thread for superior strength. Moiré endsheets, gilded page ends, a satin ribbon page marker – every detail of this superb volume confirms it is a book crafted to be enjoyed for generations.
