about the book

Summer is the best season of all, with its long days, blue skies, and endless horizons. Summertime collects more than 80 photos from 46 photographers who capture the essence of the season, including such highly acclaimed photographers as Joel Meyerowitz, Martin Parr, and Peter Marlow, as well as talented emerging artists. Quotes from noted writers and other luminaries intermingle with interpretive photographs that instantly evoke the perfect summer moment. A jacketed hardcover, Summertime is casual, elegant, and ideally sized for the summer cottage coffee table—a choice gift for weekend hosts, photography aficionados and those who long for their favorite season all year round.
