As a set, these books look and feel as if they are made for photo-bibliophiles, and the straightforward, simple approach to theme of each photographer creates excellent unity and variation in the collection. Another three volumes are already planned in the series, with installments by Christopher Anderson, Krass Clement, and Kathryn Cook.—Nicholas Chiarella
