A Photographic Portrait of America's Most Notorious Gangster

Capone is a visual retelling of the rise and eventual fall of Chicago's most notorious gangster: Alphonse "Scarface" Capone. Comprised of many never-before-published photographs from the Chicago Tribune's vast archives, Capone is a look back in time to the Roaring Twenties and the early days of organized crime. This collection of historical photos, taken from 1926 to 1952, documents Capone's life and the lives of those connected to him, including his family, mob rivals, and targets.

Many of these photographs had never been published before, giving Capone an enlightening new perspective. All of these images are historically significant to Capone buffs as well as photography buffs, who are sure to relish this glimpse into the photographic past. In addition, the introduction by the Chicago Tribune's associate managing photo/video editor provides fascinating details on the process by which original glass-plate negatives were scanned and digitized.

Capone brings readers into the dangerous, luxurious lifestyle of Al Capone through the Twenties, his 1931 trial, and his eventual death. The book also covers Capone's allies and enemies, bringing his world fully to life. This book is a vital slice of first-hand history, capturing a part of the life of one of the most notorious criminals in the US.
