Beginning with the story of the Grosvenor family's impassioned and far-seeing collecting, moving to the Society's innovations in printing and color technologies, and finally to the Geographic's approach to commissioning and editing pictures, Bendavid-Val looks into details behind the dazzling range of themes encompassed by National Geographic photography, from science and industry to exotic cultures and wildlife. Highlighting the treasured Special Collections archive, which comprises close to 150,000 photographs, the book also includes rare autochromes, vintage William Henry Jackson photographs of the American West, and much more. Featuring nearly 300 images and a beautiful design and exquisite printing, Stories on Paper and Glass is a timeless celebration and a valuable retrospective.
