Do Not Print

Frank_Sinatra_by_Sid_Avery.JPG

The Rat Pack is a limited-edition volume by Reel Art Press. Nate Jackson describes it as "a sprawling compilation of visual footnotes" from what passed as everyday life for Frank Sinatra and friends (via Luxist).

In the public eye, they lived a fantasy that mere mortals could only dream of. But between the ellipses of Rat Pack lore existed a carnival of leisure, stress, politics, starlets, heartache and happiness. For decades, some of the only photographic evidence was stashed in a cardboard box labeled "Do Not Print." That is, until now.
