I received the book earlier than the deadline. I believe it was the last book that the seller had in stock. The hardcover with a black cloth fabric was a bit wrinkled or not glued completely flat. Otherwise the book was in good shape. I'm particularly interested in this book of Carrie Mae Weems' photography as there have been 2 shows in NYC.
