The book covers the complete run of this American icon from the first, regional, television listing guides which Walter Annenberg created in order to form the magazine in 1953, to the last issue in guide format on October 9, 2005. The book includes full color reproductions of every TV Guide cover ever printed. The book is both a collector's guide with a pricing supplement included, as well as a retrospective view of the medium.
