Home Town: The Face of America. Photographs by Farm Security Photographers.
by Anderson, Sherwood.

Publisher Information:
Alliance Book Corporation, New York: 1940.

A Near Fine copy with a touch of sunning to the top edge of the boards in a Very Good unclipped dust jacket with a small chip to the front panel and missing a piece from the bottom edge of the rear panel. In the small town, where everybody knows everybody's first name where everybody knows everybody's business, Sherwood Anderson sees the foundation and the test stone of democracy. The Farm Security Agency is well known for the influence of their photography program, 1935-1944. Photographers and writers were hired to report and document the plight of poor farmers. The Information Division of the FSA was responsible for providing educational materials and press information to the public. Many of the most famous Depression-era photographers were fostered by the FSA project. Walker Evans, Dorothea Lange, and Gordon Parks were three of the most famous FSA alumni. This portrait of small town America is more nostalgic than investigative and features photographs by Ben Shahn, Arthur Rothstein, Walker Evans, Marion Post, Russell Lee, John Vachon and Dorothea Lange. 145 pages.
