Suburbia. Bill Owens. Straight Arrow Books, San Francisco, 1973. Second printing. Oblong quarto. Stiff photo-illustrated wrappers. Unpaged.

Owens spent two years photographing in three suburban communities in Northern California. The photographs show the lives of people in pursuit of The American Dream: home ownership, family life, material possessions, and a sense of self-satisfaction. Ironically, the composite picture of the lifestyle shown is one that is not particularly appealing. All of the images were taken with large format hand-held cameras, and printed in Stonetone by Rapaport Printing. Included in Andrew Roth, The Book of 101 Books: Seminal Photographic Books of the Twentieth Century, pp. 224-225.

A fine copy, with only slight rubbing at some points of the cover edges and the name of former owner written neatly on the front endpaper.
