  • LONDON & NEW YORK by ALVIN LANGDON COBURN, THE FOLIO SOCIETY Essay BY RUT BLEES LUXEMBURG

Blees Luxemburg, Rut, 2018, Printed Publication, LONDON & NEW YORK by ALVIN LANGDON COBURN, THE FOLIO SOCIETY Essay BY RUT BLEES LUXEMBURG

Abstract or Description:

Two of the greatest metropolises of the early 20th century, each captured in 20 photogravures by the pictorialist genius Alvin Langdon Coburn. These facsimiles of two volumes of luminous and evocative images, first published in 1909 and 1910 respectively, convey the urban beauty of London and New York in the age of steam. The original introduction and foreword, by Hilaire Belloc for London and by H. G. Wells for New York, are included. The facsimiles are accompanied by a separate leaflet featuring a specially commissioned introduction by Geoff Dyer and a new essay by Rut Blees Luxemburg.
