Format: Hardcover
Adams work speaks for itself. He spend a lifetime documenting the beauty of the natural world and defined many of the standards that we now take for granted with regard to landscape and nature photograpy. Unfortunately, the curator of this show, John Szarkowki, is a long-winded blowhard who finds his own maundering art criticism much more interesting than, say, the biographical basics of Adams life or the numerous interesting conflicts and interactions he had with other of his peers and contemporaries. The pictures are lovely, of course, but you can learn a lot more about Adams' work and life through almost any other book, and for a lot less than [$$$].

Ansel Adams at 100 is the catalog for the museum exhibition of the same name that has been traveling the United States and Europe from 2001-2003. Unfortunately, the exhibit did not come to a city near me, so I cannot comment on how well it is represented in the book. Since I did not see the museum exhibit from which the photographs were taken, I will be commenting on how this book fares as a stand-alone "coffee table"-type book of Ansel Adams' photographs.
The book has 191 pages, is 14 1/4x12 3/4 inches in size, and is hardbound with an oatmeal-colored linen cover and slipcase. Also included with the book is a 13x11 inch reproduction print of Aspens, Dawn (1937), which is suitable for framing. The book begins with a 42-page essay on Ansel Adams' life and career (don't worry, big print) by John Szarkowski, the book's editor and the director emeritus of the Department of Photography at the Museum of Modern Art. The essay is followed by 114 tritone plates of Ansel Adams' photographs, all black-and-white.
I think the most helpful point that I can make about this book is that it is not a book of Ansel Adams' "greatest hits" or of his best photographs. I have yet to find a complete collection of either of those things. This is a very abridged version of the Ansel Adams at 100 museum exhibition which, as far as I can ascertain from the photographs in this book, sought to give the viewer a broad perspective of Ansel Adams' relationship with photography and with nature over the course of his life. Some of the photographs are great and some quite mediocre. But you will find photographs in this book that you have never seen before (unless, of course, you saw the exhibition).

Having read many conflicting reviews regarding the quality of the prints in this book, I checked it out at the local Borders prior to deciding whether or not to make the purchase. As a professional photographer, and a great admirer of Adams, the quality represented here was going to make the difference.
The book itself is beautiful. Simple and elegant. Beautifully bound, and a pleasure to hold.
I was very happy with the quality of most of the reproductions. There were a few that didn't quite make it, but having never seen the original prints of these images, maybe they were accurately reproduced, and the original wasn't up to my expectation.
One of my favorite features in the book are the opposing leaves that have the same print made from two different times in Adams career. It gives you the chance to see how interpretation and mood can affect the print that is made. Both outstanding, but both very different as well.
I would make this purchase again.

This book is the ultimate "coffee table" book. No one can pick it up without becoming engrossed. More conversations get started in our house by this book, than any other source. If you have even the slightest interest in photographic art, then this is for you.

While the book itself has been "manufactured" to very high standards, i.e., binding, paper, etc, the prints could have been of better quality.
After reading AA's superb 3-book series (The Camera, the negative and the print), and purchasing his calendars, I'd expected prints as good or better than the ones found in these books. Unfortunately, many of the prints in "AA at 100" could have been printed better. Some of them have poor contrast, and some have poor shadow detail.
Still, there are many great prints and I'm not too unhappy. Yet, if AA had been alive, he'd have made the publisher redo most of the prints.

Format: Hardcover
This is a book much heralded by the editorial community,so it was with some disappointment when I proceeded to leaf through the pages.Upon closer scrutiny ,I found pages with ink and spot varnish setoff (the transfer of ink or other printing vehicles from one sheet to another) . This is either a byproduct of poor quality control or the printer was rushed to get this project finished.Aside from these problems,the book is very well concieved in its presentation of Ansel's maturation as an artist. The author could have easily turned this into a collection Adam's greatest hits as to appease the populous but fortunately this is not the case.In conclusion is this book worthy of the...price tag due to its technical printing flaws which i also found on other copies in two other book retailers in Vancouver I have to say : NO
