Manhole Covers
by Mimi Melnick
Publisher's Description
In almost the same vein as the architectural documentary photography of Bernd and Hilla Becher, Manhole Covers is exactly what it says it is: a collection of photographs of manhole and various utility covers. The photographs tell a fascinating story of the foundry products of long ago--they are a testament to the aesthetics of American industrial artisans. Travelling all over the United States, Robert and Mimi Melnick compiled this intriguing and edifying documentation of functional art.
