A Book of Books

Photographs by Abelardo Morell.
Bulfinch, New York, 2002. 108 pp., numerous duotone illustrations, 10x10".

This is a true book-lover's book, albeit a book of unusual books. There are stacks of books and single books, 19th century books for the blind, oversize astronomy books, a table-sized Audubon book and an impossibly massive dictionary. There are water-damaged books and books that have been buried in dirt. But some of the most interesting books are those in which the author has created a fantasy world, (eg. Alice in Wonderland) and Morell plays on this tendency and strength of literature to invent alter realities. Morrell's photographic style is to use raking light to accentuate the subtle differences in tonality and surface, creating a rich sense of texture and tension.
