Libraries - Candida Höfer and Umberto Eco - Thames & Hudson, 2006

$79.92

About the Item

by Umberto Eco. With an introduction by Italian novelist and bibliophile Umberto Eco, Candida Höfer’s book shows her as a master of the grand interior photograph, translating the experience of witnessing a breathtaking space into the form of a two-dimensional image. In this photographic book, Höfer explores the world of libraries, from the magical and grand to the abandoned, the stylish modern to the clinical - all of which have a character, intriguing in both the information they hold and the stillness they possess. Varied and beautifully printed photographic plates throughout. Hardback in original dust jacket, around 270 pages with 137 colour photographs. English language text throughout. Condition: Near Fine
