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.
