Moss-green cloth-covered boards, with photographically illustrated dust jacket. Photographs by Lee Friedlander. Afterword by Leslie George Katz. Includes a list of plates.

Benson. 11-1/4 x 11-1/4 inches. This edition was limited to 1,000 unnumbered signed hardbound copies. Out of print. Very scarce in the hardbound signed edition. Considered by many (including the artist), to be Friedlander's best book! CONDITION: Fine in Near Fine dust jacket (small faint stain to the upper spine area of the dust jacket, else Fine). From the publisher: "In 1979, Friedlander was commissioned by the Akron Art Museum to document the industrial area of the Ohio River Valley. Over the course of the following year, he traveled in Ohio and Pennsylvania, photographing the towns, cities, factories, and workers. The result is not only a stunning reportage of the industrial heartland of America, but also an insightful portrait of the contemporary American social landscape, seen with Friedlander's unique blend of formal brilliance, elliptical wit, and acute perception. As Leslie Katz states in the afterword, 'Not since the Great Depression has a series of images shown the factory world with the clarity that this book does'."
