This book, the second photobook in the selection not to have a photo on the cover, is held together by only a single stitched thread. It’s a clever choice that testifies to someone having the guts to do it this way. The tremendous sympathy for the individuals who appear in it is manifest in the picture selection. Both typography and printing are most agreeable. The only thing to detract from the whole is the paper chosen for the text: it is far too white. The panel were aware that this style of binding does nothing to help sales, but thought the print run of only 175 copies something of a waste of all that work.This special book deserves a large audience!
