Features over 300 spectacular photos, many rare and previously unpublished, plus the personal remembrances of the people who knew him best.

We particularly loved the two-page color photo of Michael performing with Eddie Van Halen, the sensational two-page color photo of the performers of We Are The World, and the many fabulous photos of the colorful and eccentric stage attire of Michael and his brothers over the years. Includes book, beautiful illustrated red cloth-covered clamshell box, white glove, and original shipping carton. Please note: an online review references a media card said to have accompanied the book when new but we are unaware of any such card and none is included with our copy. Book clean and unmarked with light wear. Binding tight. Please note: The black coating of the boards tends to flake off at the joints and some of this color has transferred to the interior of the box which is otherwise in excellent condition, aside from a partial opening at one of its corners. Dimensions: Book 18.3" x 13.5" x 2". Clamshell Box: 20.3" x 15" x 3.5". Shipping Carton: 22.5" x 15.75" x 4.5". Shipping weight 33lb. This massive and glorious printed monument truly befits the life and superlative accomplishments of Michael Jackson, the King of Pop.
