Format: Hardcover
This is a beautiful tactile book, hardcover, with a combination of small to large/full size reproductions...There is very little text. It is set out like a scrapbook of favourite pictures.

It is worth noting that Deborah Turbiville's style of photography seems an acquired taste...Hazey, atmosphehic, romantic, old worldly are the key worlds I would use...Very much one of the key styles of Vogue Italia in the 90s-early 00's.

I really enjoyed this collection of work, and shall remain a favourite on my bookshelf.

Simply Gorgeous 29 Jan. 2010

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I've been a fan of Turbeville's since the publication of "Wallflower" in 1979. I remember going to a tiny gallery in the depths of downtown Manhattan and being amazed by the beauty of her work. "Past Imperfect" was well worth the wait. The book itself is a work of art. The images are beautiful, surreal, and ethereal. This book is 'special'...a true gift to anyone who sees it.

For Turbeville Fans 17 Dec. 2009

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
For Turbeville fans this is a must book to have. It is wonderfully and innovatively printed and designed. The cover shown here is not the actual book cover, which is much more pleasing.

I look at this book for inspiration. It was recommended at a photoworkshop I attended in MT. I enjoy just browsing through and taking it all in.

Turbeville's otherworldly photography has the quality of remembered dreams. magical, ethereal, exquisite.
