I was shocked when I read the 1-star review, the style the reviewer dislikes is Avedon's signature style, and is what makes the images interesting - Why buy the book than if you don't like that style? The whole concept behind his work is the white-background, so that the viewer is forced to focus on the subject. Avedon has never been about capturing the "moment", but rather about capturing the essence of a person though an up-close portrait.
All of the images are incredibly well reproduced, and having seen them firsthand at the Corcoran Gallery of Art I can attest to the reproduction quality. Avedon does a remarkable job capturing some of the most influential people in the last 50 years, and does so in a way that is truly elegant. The majority of the prints were done using a 8x10 large format camera, and thus the pictures capture an incredible amount of detail.
I highly recommend this book for any serious collector, and especially those who are big Avedon fans.
