2007. Item #A6205
Friedlander, Lee. Frederick Law Olmsted Landscapes. NY: D.A.P. 2007. N.p., 89 large photos beautifully printed by Meridian Printing [not Meriden Gravure]. Very good hardcover with mounted photo on front cover; lacks d.j. ** In 1989 Phyllis Lambert commissioned Friedlander and two other photographers to take pictures in the parks designed by Olmsted. Friedlander writes that for this 5-year project he "needed to use all that I had learned, every trick, my best gear, whatever wit I was capable of, and I had to be as sharp and aware and immediate as a spark. [This book] is one photographer's pleasurable and wandering glances at places that bear the great vision of Mr. Olmsted." Very large; shipping/handling will be extra. Please keep this in mind when ordering.
