THE METROPOLITAN MUSEUM OF ART • "The publication is exquisitely designed in a format that is actually usable. The reproductions are of the highest quality and are often juxtaposed in ways that are informative—and sometimes very moving. Photography and the American Civil War matches the breadth and quality of the magisterial exhibition for which it was produced. " —College Art Association 2014 Alfred H. Barr Jr. Award  |  "Smartly designed by Laura Lindgren, Photography and the American Civil War evokes nineteenth-century photo albums in which loved ones were preserved like flowers under glass." —Bookforum  |  "Splendid . . . a wonderful enhancement of the show itself." —New York Review of Books  |  9 x 11 inches, 288 pages
