Meadowland Hardcover – February, 1984
Top Customer Reviews
Interesting enough if you like shots of man-made America but there are only thirty-seven photos, though nicely printed on a semi gloss paper with a 200 screen. The problem with the book, I think, is that it takes itself just too seriously. The cover is linen with a thick quality board for the flyleaf. The title spread has no photo, just some rather discrete type for the publisher, title and photographer's name. Each spread has a photo on the right with extremely generous margins and a two or three word caption on the left-hand page. The last page has an Afterword by Jonathan Williams: smallish type in three columns. That's 'Meadowlands' for you.
David Plowden has been taking similar shots of industrial America for years and published them in several books and Joshua Lutz did some beautiful color work in an oversize book in 1988, appropriately called: Meadowlands, but none of their books looked just too over-the-top like this one from the Lustrom Press (I believe they ceased to be years ago).
