This is a beautiful little book with a wonderful collection of Ketész photos all around the theme of reading, mostly of people reading. The photos are beautifully printed and the whole presentation of the book is perfect. I highly recommend it as a masterpiece to anyone who likes photos of people.

This little book is a trusted companion, a welcome break from our frantic tech-centered world. Each dip into it will reveal Keresz's deep love of books, and people. This book also makes a wonderful gift.

a thousand words... one of my five 'if I was stranded on a desert island...' gifting to friends and several on hand, excited when it was re-released in hardcover. Not to be missed...

Format: Hardcover
A friend gave me this book when it was first published in 1971 (by a different publisher than this reissue). I have cherished it and am glad to see that it is available again. If you're looking for a gift idea for anyone who enjoys reading, give them this little gem that comes without words.
