New York: Grossman, 1971. First edition. Hardcover. Andre Kertesz, 1894-1985, was one of the most inventive, influential, and prolific photographers in the medium's history. This small volume, first published in 1971, became one of his signature works. Taken between 1920 and 1970, these photographs capture people reading in many parts of the world and in very conceivable place, rooftops, in public parks, on crowded streets, waiting in the wings of the school play, those photographed are caught in a deeply personal, yet universal solitary moment. Kertesz's images celebrate the power and pleasure of this solitary activity and the images speak to readers everywhere. A fine copy of the book, in what would be a fine dust jacket except for irregular sunning to the front panel two inches from the spine. Item #13693
