Slim Aaron's classic work capturing the international elite at play in post-War America. A Wonderful Time brings together many pictures taken by Aarons for Vogue, Town & Country, Harper's Bazaar, Life, etc. and places them alongside his memories of photographing America's aristocrats. 'Here are the Cushings of Newport, the Fords of Grosse Pointe, and the Rockefellers of New York; here are the kings and queens of Beverly Hills playing croquet, the Cabots sailing off Boston's North Shore, and Barry Goldwater on the range in Arizona. Here are the Whitneys entertaining on Long Island, the Armours in their pool in Lake Forest, the Klebergs on their Texas ranch, and the scions of Palm Beach, San Francisco, and New York having a wonderful time.'
