This book is really nice, it has good quality printing and some of Weston's iconic images in it. An other interesting thing here is the comments on the images and the introduction which I appropriated alot.

Late in the photographer Edward Weston's life he and friends collaborated to produce a book on the nude photography for which he had become famous. This project went as far as a mock-up, but was never published. Now, almost fifty years after the photographer's death, it has been painstakingly researched and published. The 39 photographs are very well reproduced. Included are smaller reproductions of the extant pages of the mock-up and informative essays. This book provides valuable insight into one aspect of Weston's life. No comprehensive collection of Weston's life and photography is complete without it.
