Further reading....

by Peter Blake (1964)

This book is extensively discussed in the essay Beyond Wilderness: Robert Adams, New Topographics, and the Aesthetics of Ecological Citizenship by Finis Dunaway in the book Reframing the New Topographics.
It contains a terrific collection of images of late 1950's and early 1960's suburban sprawl and urban blight. Finis Dunaway discusses this book in direct comparison to some of the 1960's Sierra Club Exhibition Format series of coffee table books by Ansel Adams and Elliot Porter, in context to the ways that the New Topographic photographers interpreted the landscape and ecological concerns.
