“Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication,” Robert Adams has famously said. We see this not only in the austere refinement of Adams’ compositions and his unfailing focus on nature’s vast beauty and our impact upon it. It’s also part of his approach to bookmaking, seen here in these four publications, his most recent—through their understated design and typography; in their humble papers and cloths, tailored to the unique character of each book. Three are revised and expanded editions of classics: Los Angeles Spring, depicting the remaining citrus groves, eucalyptus and palms that once flourished in the Los Angeles Basin; Summer Nights, Walking, exquisite yet disquieting nocturnal scenes near his former home in Longmont, Colorado; and Eden, mysteriously radiant pictures of a non-descript area south of Colorado Springs. On Lookout Mountain is wholly new, capturing the timeless and the passing in views from Lookout Mountain, west of Denver. Together, these simple, durable book objects preserve images of landscapes that in reality are disappearing or are long since gone.
