The Barbra Streisand Scrapbook celebrates Streisand's entire life and career, including her Brooklyn childhood, Broadway triumphs in I Can Get It for You Wholesale and Funny Girl, and her countless other achievements in Hollywood. Hundreds of photographs -- some never-before-published -- appear throughout the book, along with record sleeves, sheet music covers, and poster reproduction. Unlike other biographies and filmographies, The Barbra Streisand Scrapbook illuminates Streisand as an artist as well as a celebrity. It offers a unique fan's perspective with a lighthearted and at times irreverent approach. The book is chock full of data: her many awards and honors, the major players in both her personal and professional lives, the controversies that swirl around her, and much more. And with an eye to collectors, lost film footage and never-released songs are reviewed, and memorabilia from her career is evaluated.
