Bill Brandt catalogue from exhibition at Hayward Gallery April 1970

I’ve been really interested in old gallery and museum catalogues. My latest is a Bill Brandt catalogue from the Hayward Gallery in London. Brandt is one of my favorite photographers and I really like the effect of the yellowing of the pages that the photographs are printed on. It’s also interesting to see what images are chosen to be included in the catalogue (versus what might be exhibited today). I found this at the Strand.
