Absolutely superb reproductions of many 'new' and previously unpublished photographs .... stunning. Unfortunately the 'design' of the book is a disaster, and the potential enjoyment of this book seriously compromised. The adoption of a 'portrait' format for a collection of predominantly 'landscape' format images is perverse, and has meant that undersize images are surrounded top and/or bottom by acres of white paper, and the image generally runs off the side of the page ..... uncontained and very unbalanced. Worse still are the images that are reproduced across two pages (albeit at a very much more satisfactory size), with the crease of the spine in the image. AA had very clear views, as to how his images should be displayed, or published, and I find it difficult to imagine that this arrangement would have found favour with him. There are other issues such as the widely spaced, overstylised text, which is difficult to read, with relaxed comfort. Should there be any more AA anthologies in the pipeline - and there must be given the quantity of his work as yet unseen, then I urge that a designer be used who actually understands the impact of 'design' in use, rather than being interested in the superficial appearance, as here
