This book has a great layout and many of Westons usual and lesser known portraits. It is a must have if you are even a remote fan of Weston. The layout was great. I purchased it used as it is no longer in print and my copy was in very good condition for its age. It did show some wear externally, but considering its age I would consider that normal. The interior photos were excellent condition wise. Aperature does a wonderful job with their publications general construction. you will not be disappointed with its contents.
