Hannah Charlton, Trisha Ziff. The photograph of Ernesto 'Che' Guevara by Alberto Korda, taken on 5 March 1960, is thought to be the most reproduced image in the history of photography. It has become an icon, symbolising anti-establishment thought and action, as relevant in our fractured world today as it was in the revolutionary and pop idiom of the 1960s. This book brings together photography, posters, film, fine art, clothing and artefacts from the world over to trace Che's transformation from heroic guerilla, through pop celebrity to symbol of radical chic.

Ernesto "Che" Guevara (June 14, 1928 – October 9, 1967), was an Argentine Marxist revolutionary, politician, author, intellectual, physician, military theorist, and guerrilla leader.

An excellent guide to the myth behind the martyr. Che, far from the liberal progressive icon he would later become, was in life a cold, hard-nosed man with a penchant for violence and a wide authoritarian streak, the kind who wore his almost puritanical, ascetic devotion to Marxist dogma as a cloak of self-righteous authority that isolated him from friend and foe alike.

The photograph of Ernesto "Che" Guevara taken by Alberto Korda on March 5, 1960, is thought to be the most reproduced image in the history of photography. It has been used in myriad ways, from revolutionary posters to vodka advertising, in the process becoming a universal icon of anti-establishment thought and action-made all the more popular by the recent hit film The Motorcycle Diaries. That single image's surprising history is recounted in this fascinating book. Assembling the many different appearances of the original image in posters, graffiti, fine art, clothing, and artifacts from all over the world into one irresistible volume, Che Guevara traces the man's transformation from heroic guerilla through Pop celebrity to emblem of radical chic, breathing new life into the legend yet again.
