FIRST EDITION of this classic study of New York's Greenwich Village: "In the 1940s the Village vibrated so slowly that it seemed to stand still. My way of working, so far removed from the snapshot, had trained me in the creation of that nimbus of stillness." Designed by A. W. Rushmore. Fernández, 'New York in Photobooks,' pp. 58-61.
