I received the book earlier than the deadline. I believe it was the last book that the seller had in stock. The hardcover with a black cloth fabric was a bit wrinkled or not glued completely flat. Otherwise the book was in good shape. I'm particularly interested in this book of Carrie Mae Weems' photography as there have been 2 shows in NYC.

Carrie Mae Weems' work is amazing, but this catalog does not do it justice. A lot of the images and text are so small that the images are difficult to decipher and some of the text is impossible to read. She deserves a better preservation of her work.

Saw Carrie's outstanding photography exhibition at Stanford University in Palo Alto recently, and purchased the book for my husbands birthday.
She is unique and a treasure!
