LIFE Mother's Day Print Sale: Own an Iconic Photograph From the Archives

Updated: May 01, 2017 11:44 AM ET | Originally published: Apr 25, 2016

When Mother's Day rolls around, it's often easiest to turn to time-tested tokens of appreciation: flowers, breakfast in bed, even a heartfelt card. For those seeking something a little different this year, the LIFE Mother’s Day Sale offers not only an alternative to the routine gift, but also a piece of history. For a limited time, a selection of prints from the LIFE magazine archives will be available at a discount in the TIME Shop.

Three new photographs round out the shop's collection. From Nina Leen, who consistently elevated fashion photography to a high art, there's a beautifully composed image of beachwear styles popular in the summer of 1950. From Andreas Feininger, whose architectural training gave him a keen eye for structure, there's a stunning image of the Brooklyn Bridge against a painterly Manhattan skyline. And from Alfred Eisenstaedt, one of LIFE's most renowned photographers, a timeless image of Jackie Kennedy reading a bedtime story to her daughter Caroline in the weeks before her husband would be elected President of the United States.

From Monday, May 1 through Monday, May 8, use the promo code MOM30 to claim 30% off an 11×14-inch photographic print produced on archival quality paper. Each of the prints shown in the gallery above retails for $74.95 before the discount and includes the story behind the photograph and a certificate of authenticity.

Go to the TIME Shop for an opportunity to own—or gift—a piece of LIFE.
