This beautifully rendered collection of images by Emmet Gowin is utterly sublime. I was first shown this book by a tutor at art college in the 1980s and it has always stayed in my mind. It has until recently only been available as an expensive, second hand import from the USA but was republished in 2009 by Steidl, I purchased a copy straight away and was blown away again. The quality of the print reproduction is excellent and the images themselves, particularly of the artist's striking wife, Edith, are breathtaking. A fantastic addition to any collection of art photography books.
