        The Best

        In terms of presentation and quality of the reproductions, these are the best I've seen of his work. That's a personal opinion though as I prefer the gloss finish to the matt one. Others differ but to me they bring the works alive. You get a flavour of how it will look by looking at the Picasso postcard book I've scanned. Different cards obviously but exactly the same design. Here.

        The Civil War. Lincoln, Grant, Lee, Sherman, Mathew Brady, Alexander Gardner, T. H. O’Sullivan, Gettysburg, Fredericksburg et al. When our mind's eye glances over those years between 1861 and 1865 it it is these black & white photographs it sees. So evocative of the period, so powerful the images, I swear if I ever found out that the Civil War was fought in color I'd be disappointed.

        Tell me what you see?

        Official Blurb: A treasury of 24 historic images documents the War between the States. Taken while the medium was still in its infancy, these memorable photographs date from the days of America's second revolution. Featuring the work of such distinguished artists as Mathew Brady, Alexander Gardner, and T. H. O’Sullivan, they include portraits of Lincoln, Grant, Lee, Sherman, and other notables; camp scenes of soldiers at work and rest; battlefields from Gettysburg to Fredericksburg; fhe final days in the Confederate capital.

        Astonishingly clear and detailed, these cards offer a striking way to send messages or greetings to Civil War buffs as well as a gallery of scenes from American history. Each photo features a caption and informative notes.
