This week I’m featuring a rare head shot of Leonard that I bought from Historic Images. I’ve seen a similar version from this session where he has a full smile, but in this one the smile is a little less broad. These head shots were often used for reference in AP articles. Historic Images also send a newspaper clipping of this practice in action; in this case, a celebrity horoscope from 1972. ( btw, the image of Nimoy was taken in 1969!)
I show first the original, which was quite grubby as it was probably stored in the bottom of a filing case for reference. It had a lot of yellowing and a bit filmy. (looks like someone scratched his name into the film!) I’m including both here so you can see the restoration I applied. Enjoy!
