A photobook that provides much viewing enjoyment. It has a conventional beauty and elegance that is now seldom encountered. Exceptionally well lithographed and printed, and traditionally made with faintly tinted paper and laid endpapers, yet without appearing old-fashioned. This is in the best tradition of really well produced books: a breath of fresh air, a calm backwater in the vast ocean of photobooks. Its conventional monochrome is unobtrusive: much would have been lost by printing in colour. The modern cover is in pleasant contrast.
