I am a massive fan of Saul Leiters work. I saw some photographs he took way back in 1967 for the magazine Nova here in the UK, two of which are included in this volume (and have not dated one bit). Having seen these images his name stuck in my memory. Although I heard nothing until I saw he was having a small exhibition at the FAGGIONATO gallery in Albermarle Street back in 2008 which I attended. He was showing his personal work which I found stunning. I do have a few problems with the design of this book. Some pictures have been cropped and bleed off the page. Others are spread across two pages meaning part of the image falls into the gutter. Personally I like photographs to be shown with at least some white space even if it means they are smaller. Having said that this book is worth having as it also shows his paintings which are impressive with a fresh use of colour and texture. Though in the end it's the photographs that are really wonderful.

A great overall look on Leiter's career. The texts, essays, profiles are excellent. If you've bought Leiter's early colour and black and white, I suggest you should still obtain this one (assuming you liked them). A great collection of Leiter's photographs and drawings, paintings. Fascinating, compelling.

the work of Saul Leiter has been little known until relatively recently, in part due to his own desire to shun publicity and limelight. But his reputation as a street photographer in both colour and black and white and as a painter has grown in recent years. This stunning catalogue shows all aspects of his work and contains interesting essays. A treasure!

This book is produced to a high quality and is very good value considering it is hardback. I love Saul Leiter's photography and the quality of the reproductions here are excellent. The essays are informative and interesting providing insights from a range of perspectives. (Some are in German).

Really like this. Having seen some of his work in a gallery recently I wanted to see more. This is a good collection. A master of 'street' in colour.
