"Nina Leen's ability to combine pictures with appropriate captions is unique. Starting with selections of her own superb photographs, she illuminates them with quotations, aphorisms, and proverbs that not only give new depth to the quotations but also throw dazzling shafts of light on the pictures. The matching of pictures and captions here becomes in turn wry, sardonic, touching, foreboding, and often very very funny. The old rule that the whole is never more than the sum of its parts is exploded. When Miss Leen gets through with the parts, the sum is MUCH greater!" —Maitland A. Edey, former editor, Time-Life Books.
