        Has there ever been a cooler person on the planet than Steve McQueen? I've yet to see anyone who has come close. He was the epitome of cool in the 60s & 70s and now, some 30 years after his death, he remains the man so many men would like to be.



          More importantly, it is his body of film work that time has deemed even more iconic than when it was first produced. The Great Escape, The Thomas Crown Affair, Bullitt...all classics in the history of cinema. And there are others, many others.

        He had the kind of screen presence that only the very best possessed. He put bums on seats in a way very few can replicate. In short he had it all and we had all of it.

        Sheer class.

        Steve McQueen Living on the Edge Hardcover Book
        Sept. 2013: As part of photographing the covers and inner flaps of every book ever published, I've started the scans on Steve McQueen books which can be viewed here (smartphone page). Just a few for the mo. but will be added to. If you have any photos of any Steve McQueen book covers from any part of the world why not e-mail (ihuppert5@aol.com) them to me and I'll put them up. The aim is to have a visual record of every Steve McQueen book ever published. Inner flaps and the publishers notes contain so much info about the book - I like to include at least the flap as well if possible. And your help makes it a lot easier. Or, if you prefer, you can send me your unwanted books and I can scan them. Any book, not just this author. Address: Paul Page, 5 High St., South Norwood, London SE25 6EP, UK. If you are thinking of chucking those books out then this would make a perfect alternative home for them.
