I own several copies of this book. I really love it. The gravure prints with their almost velvety blacks and amazing tones just give every black and white photo an almost three dimensional depth. Fantastic portraits of some truly remarkable people.

I have long loved this book - checking it out many times from our local library just to gaze at Karsh's wonderful capture of the portraits within. I love the prints, and the photographer's comments about how he managed to capture just the right expression, just the right poise, posture, and pose of his subject to best reflect the wholeness of his person. This photographer is my very favorite. I was delighted to find the book via this wonderful used book store.
