That title is no accident, the Dennis Stock: American Cool book published by Reel Art Press contains some of the coolest imagery and people of the mid-20th century.

From the publisher that brought is the Unseen Steve McQueen book comes another hip coffee table volume covering 288 pages with 260 black and white photographs.

The images are the work of Dennis Stock, a Magnum photographer for over fifty years and with a fine body of work to show for it, particularly over the 1950s to the 1970s. The book highlights the pick of these, including several never-before-seen shots, as well as his calling cards, like the photographer's photo-essay on James Dean shot just seven months before the actor’s death.

You'll also find portraits like Audrey Hepburn resting her head on a car window, along with other classics Miles Davis playing jazz and JFK on the campaign trail, plus other more candid shots taken across the US over this period.

It is on sale from today, priced officially at £45 for the hardback, although you might be able to find a discounted deal.
