The Manchester Collection was an exhibition created as a 'festschrift' to celebrate Kertész's ninetieth birthday and to bring a large selection of Kertész's work to Northern England. The separate sections on early work, still-life, portraits and figure studies, abstractions, etc. are each introduced by noted photo-scholars. (NOTE: The 'Distortions' series is not included.) Two hundred ninety-seven images reproduced in rich duotone printed by Jean Genoud in Lausanne, Switzerland. Scarce limited edition; also issued in hard and softbound trade editions.
