The defining book on the master photographer, Ansel Adams At 100 is one of the most beautiful books ever created. Its author, John Szarkowski has painstakingly selected what he considers Adams'' greatest work -- 114 images -- and has tracked down the single best photographic print of each. He presents an unexpected and sometimes unfamiliar body of work. His brilliant and incisive essay speaks to his judgment of the importance of Ansel Adams as a modern artist. Published in August 2001, "Ansel Adams At 100" is a superlative piece of bookmaking. Under the direction of Richard Benson, Dean of the Yale School of Art and a renowned reproduction expert, the exhibition prints have been scanned in tritone, faithfully reproducing the nuances of the original prints; the book was impeccably printed at Meridian Printing on specially-made French paper and bound in linen cloth, with a matching slipcase. This magnificent centennial volume truly defines the term "collector''s edition."
