Between the Landscape and its Other
by Professor Paul Vanderbilt
Publisher's Description
In the 1940s Paul Vanderbilt transformed Stryker's FSA files into a remarkable historical resource. He also served as archivist for the State Historical Society of Wisconsin and pioneered "intuitive, unorthodox approaches to organizing vast collections of visual materials. In the course of his remarkable career, Vanderbilt revolutionized the way we see and use representations of all kinds--and turned `filing' into an art form."--the publisher. This book, written by Vanderbilt before his death, is an illustrated examination of his most important ideas, and features many examples from the extensive collection he developed in Madison.
