Figure Skating Now: Olympic and World Champions

Figure Skating Now: Olympic and World Champions - Steve Milton Photography by Gérard Châtaigneau. Very much an expansion of the idea of Milton's earlier "Super Skaters" book - a page or so of text and some "stats" for each skater. Here, however, the international community, and the pairs and dance disciplines, are much better represented, and the photos are more integrated into the text, instead of being separated to facing pages. In fact, one of the things I like least about this volume is that many of the photos are not framed, but "cut out". The focus here is on eligible skaters only (obviously a lead-in to the 2002 Olympics), and the book is arranged by discipline - men, women, pairs, dance, with an introductory section on each.
