The only way in which this book falls short of perfection is its relative brevity. And this is an excusable flaw, as photographers who are ruthless editors of their own work as I suspect Sommer was often leave little chaff in the wheat. Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful photographs, drawings, and other artworks!

Recommends it for: Photography buffs
