Published by Gibson's own Lustrum Press, this lot includes all three books in the trilogy that established Gibson a major figure in contemporary photography. They also established Lustrum Press as the most important small publisher of photography books during that time. Gibson's early work includes fragmentary details from the world, which turn the human figure into structure and details of structures into pure line and form. All produced by Rapoport Printing.
