Oak Tree, Sunset City, California 1932

Oak Tree, Sunset City, California 1932

The thirty-two Ansel Adams posters published by Little, Brown over the last fifteen years have sold nearly 2 million copies, making the series perhaps the most successful single-artist poster line of all time. Now, to update the series for a new century and a new generation, Little, Brown and The Ansel Adams Publishing Rights Trust have commissioned Pentagram, the renowned international design firm, to create a fresh look for the posters.

The two posters pictured here introduce Pentagram’s beautiful new design. The images are larger and the sans serif typeface lends an elegant simplicity to the overall presentation. In response to requests, sheet sizes have been standardized so that commercially available poster frames can be used. And to highlight the fact that these are the only authorized Ansel Adams posters published, each will feature a striking blind-embossed seal. The one thing that has not changed is the painstaking attention to quality — the superb duotone printing and heavy coated stock that are hallmarks of the series.

Concepts Of Identity

Concepts Of Identity

Concepts of identity are complex and changing, and in this book Katherine Hoffman examines images of individuals and families from ancient Egypt to the present—more than two thirds of the book covers the twentieth century. Through a comprehensive study of paintings, sculpture, photography, film, television, and other media, Hoffman provides eye-opening insights on the identity of family and self through time and explores what these images say about the attitudes and values of a particular culture.Concepts of identity and self as individuals and families are complex and changing, but images from the artist, the photographer, the filmmaker, and TV producer can help us discover where we came from, who we are and why, and where we are in the maze of postmodern life. Katherine Hoffman explores portraits and images from ancient Egypt to the present—more than two-thirds of the book covers the twentieth century, including images from art, photography, film, TV, and other media. The 75 illustrations are integrated with the text.
The Negative

The Negative


Ansel Adams (1902-1984) produced some of the 20th century’s most iconic photographic images and helped nurture the art of photography through his creative innovations and peerless technical mastery.

The Negative–the second volume in Adams’ celebrated series of books on photographic techniques–has taught generations of photographers how to use film and the film development process creatively. Examples of Adams’ own work clarify the principles discussed. This classic handbook distills the knowledge gained through a lifetime in photography and remains as vital today as when it was first published.

Anchored by a detailed discussion of Adams’ Zone System and his seminal concept of visualization, The Negative covers artificial and natural light, film and exposure, and darkroom equipment and techniques. Beautifully illustrated with photographs as well as instructive line drawings, this classic manual can dramatically improve your photography.

“Adams is a clear-thinking writer whose concepts cannot but help the serious photographer.” – New York Times

“A master-class kind of guide from an undisputed master.” – Publishers Weekly

Over 1 million copies sold.

Publisher’s Note: This ebook of The Negative works best as a digital companion to the print edition. The ebook was produced by electronically scanning and digitizing a print edition, and as a result, your reading device may display images with halftone or moiré patterns.
