In a holiday book guide, the Wall Street Journal recommends The Photographs of Homer Page by Keith Davis and claims that it is "one of the best-printed books of the year." The American Library Association Booklist pronounced it as one of the year's top 10 photography books. The 144 page cloth-covered book includes 100 tritone photographs by the obscurely known Homer Page. Page used a 1949-50 Guggenheim Fellowship to photograph New York City.
Keith Davis, Curator of Photography at The Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art, asked Malcolm Grear Designers to design the book. MGD has previously collaborated with Davis on numerous books for the Hallmark Photographic Collection, including his important series The Origins of American Photography.
The book, published by the Hall Family Foundation in association with Nelson-Atkins, was printed by Meridian Printing with 300-line screen separations made by Thomas Palmer.
