Ansel Adams catalog

Capital Offset has just finished printing “Ansel Adams, At the Water’s Edge”, a 176-page catalog to accompany the upcoming exhibition at the Peabody Essex Museum. Plant manager Aaron Constant created 120 tritone images, printing at 300 line screen. Curator Phillip Prodger says this will be a unique exhibition of Ansel Adams’ work focusing on the artist’s work with water in all its forms.
