This is the first complete and authorized official photobook on ABBA, one of the greatest pop groups of the 20th century. The group has sold a stunning 400 million records and in some markets, the United Kingdom for example, they have sold more records than the Beatles. This 400-page large format book - in the format of a classical LP - contains more than 600 pictures, many never published before. All the classic images are included but also previously unseen picturesby top professional photographers. The book covers t only the stunning career of the group but also tells the story of the four members before ABBA - and what happened after the group broke up, including the international success of the musicals Chess and Mamma Mia. ABBA won the Eurovision Song Contest in Brighton on April 6, 1974, and the book is being launched in 2014 as a celebration of that 40 year anniversary international breakthrough.
