Text by Cornell Capa, Studs Terkel, and other contributors. Printed on pristine-white, thick coated stock paper in the United States to the highest standards.

Published on the occasion of the retrospective exhibition of the same name held at The Chicago Public Library Cultural Center in 1986. Presents "Mickey Pallas: Photographs 1945-1960". Indelible and loving street photography from an under-appreciated Master. "Your photographs are full of your strength and spirit, an amalgam of your passion for action and personal struggle" (Cornell Capa). "Ever on the go, Mickey, with the gait and build of a club fighter, was deceptively good. So good that he captured, indelibly, a piece of our history" (Studs Terkel). "Ever on the go" aptly describes the street photographer, and Mickey Pallas was the indefatigable street photographer par excellence. An absolute "must-have" title for Mickey Pallas collectors. This copy is very boldly and beautifully signed in black ink-pen underneath the very first image by Mickey Pallas. It is signed directly on the page itself, not on a tipped-in page. This title is now collectible. As far as we know, this is the only such signed copy of the Exhibition Catalog available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a pristine beauty. Please note: While this is neither a full-fledged book nor a monograph, it showcases some of Mickey Pallas' most iconic images, and is very beautifully produced as such. Copies available online have serious flaws. This is surely an accessible and lovely alternative. A rare signed copy thus. 32 plates. One of the most brilliant American photographers of our time. A fine copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER COPY OF THIS TITLE IN OUR CATALOG). $80.00
