An interesting experiment in selection of photographic material to convey first, groups of dance segments, second, the philosophy back of Martha Graham's conception, style and purpose. The dances which are significantly American are given in their entirely. Beautiful photography, revealing in extraordinary fidelity the character and spirit of what she is contributing to the American dance. Coordination dramatized through final results shows body spirit. Program notes -- brief biography -- notes on photographic technique -- choreographic record, make this a book of many uses, as well as one of the loveliest books of the year.
