This publication is the first comprehensive survey of Nancy Newhall, a prolific writer and major contributor to the history of photography. During the first half of the twentieth century, Newhall helped define photography and was one of the first to write about visual literacy- the importance of reading images and how text can change their meaning. Using her skills as designer, editor and collaborator, Nancy Newhall helped shape the concept of the modern photographic book. A Literacy of Images celebrates the 100th anniversary of her birth, exhibiting her photographs (many for the first time) and the work of her circle of friends, including well-known photographers such as Ansel Adams, Paul Strand, Helen Levitt and Edward Weston.
