Reading the American Landscape: An Index of Books and Images With the texture and heft of a telephone directory, this volume presents an astonishing photographic taxonomy of the American landscape. Created by noted Dutch designer Irma Boom, the book compiles 6500 photographs culled from American urban, suburban and rural terrains, composed into typological grids. The result is a sweeping survey of a vast and varied territory, a photo-essay of transcontinental proportions.
