Walker Evans Image used in Agees Let Us Now Praise Famous Men

The Library of Congress has high resolution scans of Walker Evans’ images taken for James Agee’s Let Us Now Praise Famous Men. I like the ‘scan junk’ around these images, a density wedge and primary colour samples. From the Steamboats are Ruining Everything blog. Alas the page numbering in my Violette Editions copy of the book appears to be different to the page numbering in the edition that Cain is using. Good excuse to re-read.

Polish shop tea bags

Scan of a foil pack of tea bags found in the local Polish shop. Love the graphic design.
