Unfortunately, as wonderful as the photos are, the book is less so:
1) There are just too many pictures. Someone should have sat down and made a hard edit, reducing the number of photos by at least a third. As pretty as these are, it gets old.
2) In spite of the overwhelming number of photos, there is an appendix of thumbnail images showing us even more images that are available for purchase as prints. Talk about tacky. This is a $45 book. The cost alone should exempt me from being advertised to like this.
3) The words that are interspersed with the photos add nothing to the images. Just the opposite, in fact, they drag us out of the moment for no good reason. Someone should've stepped up and either cut text entirely, or moved it to an introduction or appendix, where it wouldn't interfere with our appreciation of the art.
4) The fit and finish of the book isn't great. The paper and typography are serviceable, but not great. I'd love to have these photos on a thicker and less reflective paper.
In spite of my complaints about the book, I highly recommend this purchase--there's a lot of breathtaking photography in these pages.
