From the publisher: "Frederick Sommer first became renowned for his austere desert landscapes and portraits -- a flattened jackrabbit from 1939, a portrait of Max Ernst merged with the side of a weathered building. He later turned his fascination with what he termed 'elegance of form' in surprising directions: a series of dramatically lit paper cutouts from the late 1970s, and his photo-collages from the 1990s, meticulous works incorporating anatomical drawings. The Box is a randomly-ordered series of 64 cards which readers can re-compose into a unique sequence/book of their own."
