Just wanted to let you know my books arrived today (right on time!) in perfect condition. Thanks so much for the care in packing them. They are on the shelves in the library and look beautiful as well as right at home!
This is the second printing of the cult classic “Suburbia” published by Straight Arrow Books, San Francisco in 1974. The book is an amazing dissection of the Northern California suburban sprawl of the late '60s and early '70s and is truly one of the great American photography books of the last quarter of the 20th Century. This soft cover book in photo illustrated wraps, contains 114 photographs, mostly black and white, but some color, all with classic deadpan captions by Bill Owens. The book measures 10” x 12”.
The book is in Near Fine + condition with minor peeling to the clear plastic lacquer coating of the covers. The previous owner has written her name and address in small black letters on the front inside cover. Overall, this is an excellent copy of this highly collectible title that has been signed by Bill Owens. The book was selected by Andrew Roth for inclusion in “The Book of 101 Books: Seminal Photographic Books of the 20th Century”.
