Naomi Rosenblum Broadened the Horizon for World Photography

“As with so many fields, photography was defined in its early years by men. Those men stated what and who was important. . . But in our field, that baton was picked up and carried forth by Naomi Rosenblum. Her many contributions leave a lasting legacy of how we think about photography and photographers.”

Author Diana Stoll has written a wonderful tribute to Naomi Rosenblum, author of "A World History of Photography" and "A History of Women Photographers" who passed away in February at the age of ninety-six. She spoke with many historians, curators, and artists who were impacted by Naomi's inquisitive and horizon-broadening career—read now on Aperture Foundation:

https://aperture.org/editorial/naomi-rosenblum-broadened-the-horizon-for-world-photography/

The curator and author was a touchstone in photography, publishing essential volumes about the medium's history and the contributions of women artists.

Happy hour reading anyone?

“UNCORKED is an irresistible page turner for any lover of the grape.” —@forewordreviews

A beautiful holiday gift for the oenophile or helixophile (that is, a corkscrew collector), this visual guide to the myriad forms of the corkscrew will fascinate and delight.

In Uncorked, Marilynn Gelfman Karp uses her own collection of corkscrews―carefully chosen both for their inventiveness and for their decorative qualities―to trace the history and evolution of this curious tool. With co-author Jeremy Franklin Brooke, she establishes a taxonomy of the corkscrew based on the fundamental characteristics of handle, shaft, and screw, and then presents more than 650 individual specimens by category. They range from the simplest “basic T” models to the most whimsical flights of fancy (a folding pair of legs, a seahorse) and the most elaborate mechanical contrivances. Each example is illustrated with superb color photography and fully described.

I am looking for a postcard booklet of vintage photos. Do you still print them?
I found this book in flea market. Signed and seems odd cover? Can someone help me figure out what I have? Also willing to sell
A little something found while packing.
Thanks Abbeville Press!

My 10 year old is crazy about soccer, and he is very smart! He caught a misprint on your book “Stars of World Soccer,” by Illugi Jvkulsson. (2015), where all players from Argentina have a Guatemalan flag next to them. I’m a proud mom! We love your books!
