Update #2: Friedlander's Olmsted
The other day I wrote about the current exhibition and book of Olmsted's parks and landscapes by Lee Friedlander.
Well the book - Lee Friedlander: Photographs Frederick Law Olmsted Landscapes - arrived yesterday. I only had time for a fairly brief browse, but it's a gorgeous book. The pictures live up to expectations and the printing and paper is just superb - the images are very "photographic" with a wonderful depth. And the overall design and feel of the book results in a very satisfying experience for the reader (viewer?) - at least for this one anyway. Everything down to the colour and feel of the linen cover and the sort of tipped-in print on the front comes together so well.
