Slim Aarons spent his life photographically documenting jet-setters, movie stars and beautiful people doing beautiful things during the 50's, 60's and 70's. His first book, A Wonderful Time, magnificently captures the life of America's elite from coast to coast, in Bermuda, the Caribbean and Acapulco.

Drawing from thousands of pictures taken post World War ll on assignment for Town and Country, Holiday, Harpers Bazaar, Life, Vogue and Travel & Leisure, Slim Aarons selected the best of them for this book...many of them never previously published.

Accompanying the glorious photos, Slim narrates his experiences and shares his impressions while photographing American Aristocrats on their estates and at play at their favorite resorts. 

A highly sought after, and hard-to-find book, Slim Aarons is also a documentary currently featured on Amazon Prime, where the book is touted as "a prized possession" for those who have it.
