On Reading

Posted on

onreading.jpgI was browsing through the W.W. Norton catalog and I saw that they are reprinting a book called On Reading by the photographer Andre Kertesz. We had the original version in our library so I had to check it out. It is a wonderful little book with photographs of people from all over the world sharing the simple act of reading. Circus performers, clergy, children and seniors – he’s covered it all. It’s definitely worth looking at. The Portland Museum of Art will host an exhibit of the photographs from the book this summer.
