From Library Journal
Feininger has selected 199 of his finest photographs from 1928 to the present. His accompanying narrative is a personal history, covering his entire life. Especially interesting is the relation of his youthful indecision and questing. The book serves as a retrospective of his work and richly shows the variety of his art and technique. A prolific author, Feininger is well able to verbalize his feelings about his art and to write clearly about his sometimes unorthodox methods. Here, he offers a litte of his philosophy of art, and some general discussion of his technique. The quality of the prints is excellent. This belongs in both general and special collections.
