MESSAGE FROM THE INTERIOR. With an afterword by John Szarkowski.

New York: Eakins Press, 1966. Evans, Walker. First edition. Square folio, 12 photogravure plates with tissue guards, 1 leaf with titles of the photographs, 1 leaf with afterwords. Grey cloth, titled in white ink on the spine with a printed paper label on front cover. Faint toning at the blank margin, else a very good copy in the original but tattered plain glassine dust jacket.

SIGNED, inscribed and dated upon publication by the photographer; "Katharine and Natasha, love, Walker, 9/1/66." Katharine Hamill and Natasha von Hoershelman were a couple for much of their lives; they were Associate Editors at Fortune along with Walker Evans, and the three remained close friends until their deaths.

"Evans’ interiors function like landscapes that open up towards other worlds, largely through the particular attention that he pays to the inanimate objects that are present, almost representing them as characters themselves." Anna Solal. Item #51863
