For most of us, most of the time, keys are simply pieces of metal - things we stash in a pocket or purse, hardly thinking about them between uses. It's when we misplace one that the key reveals itself to be one of the most significant articles in the world. Without the right key, we're locked out - and in need of help. That's why we also use the word key in another, figurative sense: to stand for an idea that answers a riddle or solves a problem.This profound connection between physical and metaphorical keys is the touchstone of photojournalist Linda Solomon's powerful new book. A collector of vintage keys, Solomon decided to make photographs of these intriguing objects. As she was doing so, she fell upon a revelation - that the keys we truly treasure are those that wisely address life's difficulties and bring us peace of mind.In "The Key", Solomon couples her beautiful black-and-white photos of intricate antique keys with words of wisdom from some of our time's most celebrated people.

Sidney Poitier, Tony Bennett, Doris Day, Kim Novak, Howie Mandel, Norman Lear and Hilary Duff are among the many who contribute their life-changing, life-affirming insights to this wonderful collection. "The Key" will release in October to coincide with The Key to the Cure breast cancer charity run by Saks Fifth Avenue.
