This is a book I never tire of championing. Any graphic designer worth the name should aim to be an expert in photography: commissioning it, understanding it, editing it, and using it. Pictures on a Page, written by a newsman of brilliance, a former editor of the Sunday Times in London, is the best study of picture editing I have ever seen, and a book I often revisit. Evans analyzes a wealth of compelling news pictures and their presentation on the page, providing a masterly lesson in visual history as he guides and informs.
