Ved første blikk "bare" en innbundet praktbok i A4 format med skarpe fotografier av alskens sjakkspillere på hver side. Ved neste gjennomgang straks også en intelligent bok om sjakkens vesen og sjakksportens virkelighet, litt sterk kost!

David Llada bruker all sin bakgrunn også som sjakkjournalist i jakten på den samlede miksen og bilder og motiver som tilsammen virkelig forteller en historie. Sammen med noen gode ledsagende tekster til hvert kapittel. Overraskende mye av gavebok til sjakkentusiaster.

Og den mest portretterte i boka er uten tvil Magnus Carlsen.

Forlagets egen omtale:

The Thinkers is a visual tribute to the game of chess, showcasing the emotions, exertions and desires of the players, and conveying the mental intensity only chess can command. Included are some of the most iconic portraits of today’s stars, as well as emotive shots of ordinary players from all over the world, with photos taken over the last five years in venues such as Mombasa, London, Chennai, Las Vegas, Baku and Sao Paulo.

Llada’s photographs capture the full richness and drama of the game, making this the most visually stunning book ever devoted to chess.

David Llada (born in Spain in 1978) has always been connected to the chess world, first as a professional chess journalist, publishing his contributions in all the world’s major chess magazines. In recent times he has earned a reputation as the chess photographer, working as Official Photographer at the three most recent Olympiads.

“David Llada’s pictures are full of life, and they are colourful even if black-and-white. Precisely as the game of chess itself.” – GM Emil Sutovsky, ACP President
