Runner-up for the Historical Book Award at Rencontres d’Arles 2009, and selected by Martin Parr as one of the ten best books of 2009.
With the demise of Kodachrome film in 2009, the colour palette that in many ways defined an era also disappeared. The 200+ Kodachrome slides selected by Ed Jones and Timothy Prus for reproduction in The Corinthians: A Kodachrome Slideshow – a visual commentary on the letters of St Paul – portray the new prosperity of a postwar United States, where TVs, barbecues, big cars and summer vacations take centre stage.
