Publisher's Description

A digitally remastered facsimile edition of Danny Lyon's seminal 1971 photobook, highly influential in the history of documentary photography.

Heralded as a "masterpiece" by Martin Parr and Gerry Badger in The Photobook: A History Volume II.

Revolutionary in the 1970s, Lyon's record of life inside the Texas prison system was one of the first photobooks to include ephemera and has been out of print for over 40 years.

A valuable collector's item, first edition hardbacks in good condition sell for over $1000, this edition has been updated with a new afterword by Danny Lyon.

The growth of the prison population in the US - currently the largest in the world – and recent debate over the drugs used in carrying out the death penalty highlight the continued relevance of this book today.
