This review is from: MONO: Volume 1 (Hardcover)
The book has a clean and an unintrusive layout. The minimal graphic design and limited use of texts (although some introductions are really moving) blend nicely with the work, which is indeed strong and bold
and vivid. The paper is nice and thick, I would say it is matte but carries a nice smooth feel to it. The cover is made of black cloth and has embossed silver titles. The book has a lot of personality and the editors rightly opted to keep it bold without over fill it with words and colors. The range of work varies from fine art to documentary to conceptual and avant garde. This diversity however seems well connected and all the works are nicely threaded.
If you like black and white photography I believe this is its modern bible. A must.
