If you like history and art, you'll love WILLIAM STONE'S NEW MEXICO THEN AND NOW. Using the principal of repeat photography--finding an old picture of a location and rephotographing the same spot--he created a photographic, geographic, and to a degree social history of the state called The Land of Enchantment. You'll have a good time looking through this beautiful coffee table volume. Like every region of the world, New Mexico has had its share of quirky places, where outrageous people did off the wall stuff. And--places where events were dead serious, and which still influence our lives, though they happened long ago. With his large-format camera and tall tripod, STONE has captured the best of The Land of Enchantment's spots for the now images. Even better, his then shots were taken by some of America's finest early photographers. William Henry Jackson, Edward Weston, and many others bring the pages of the book to life. STONE's captions add to the pictures, documenting his feelings and thoughts as he worked on each location. His writing partner, JEROLD WIDDSON's articulare essays tie the pictures together in a lively fashion. No dull paragraphs full of facts here. In fact, if you have sonmeone at home think's history class is boring, leave NEW MEXICO THEN AND NOW around to be discovered. If you have someone who finds history exciting, NEW MEXICO THEN AND NOW is the perfect coffee table book because it's designed to be opened and examined slowly--savored, in other words, like a nice, hot cuppa your favorite brew. In case you haven't figured it out, I enjoyed NEW MEXICO THEN AND NOW. I did it on many levels. Though it focuses on one region of the country, it carries a universal message about change and stability that's fun to discover and think about.Read more ›

I bought this for my husband for Christmas, we have just moved to NM, and it has proved a really interesting book. The presentation of then and now photographs are fascinating, they really show how places have changed. I really like the full size pictures facing each other for easy comparison. It has given us some ideas for places to visit and the potted histories are really good.

This is a fantastic coffe table book that I actually read from cover to cover. Of course, it's mostly photographs, so it wasn't too hard to do, but still. The author has collected old photographs of New Mexico, most of them from the 19th century, and then took photos of the same scenes as they look today. The captions explain a little history of the old photo, and interesting comments about how the new photo was taken. In some cases the old buildings are still standing, and in others there is no longer any trace that the buildings or entire towns even existed. The new photos are very high quality, and the printing of the book is top notch. If you have any interest in New Mexican history or the state's scenic wonders, this is a must have.
