Bruce Lee: The Authorized Visual History

Author(s): Carlton Books (Compiled by); Shannon Lee (Foreword by); Steve Kerridge


Bruce Lee: The Authorized Visual History will be the biggest illustrated

book ever to be authorized by his estate. Bruce Lee was instrumental in

the global popularity of martial arts, and he is still the most famous

martial artist in the world, some 40 years after his death in 1973. He

appears in UFC video games, he has ranges of branded clothing and

other goods, and his movies are constantly being re-issued to

audiences hungry for more. But Bruce was a man of action in all

aspects of his life. Before he made a name for himself in Seattle, USA

he had appeared in nearly 20 Hong Kong movies. He wrote poetry and

philosophy as well as film ideas and scripts. This book shows the whole

of Bruce Lee's life in photographs, all sourced from the extensive Lee

family archives. Bruce himself was a prolific photographer and took

thousands of photographs, from time spent with his family and on set to

intensive training and martial arts demonstrations. This book gathers all

the best images, from the classic, best known theatrical poses to the

previously undiscovered and never before published.
