From the publisher: "Considered by many to be the most beautiful of Sommer's books, All Children are Ambassadors has been widely praised for its unique approach to the combining of words and images. This stunning publication brings together previously unpublished color collages with selected photographs, drawings, and cliches-verres, documenting some forty years of work by one of photography's great creative forces. An artists' book of superb originality, All Children are Ambassadors is included in some of the finest public and private book collections in the country."
