Protest The War- Judith Joy Ross

I just bought Protest The War by Judith Joy Ross for under ten dollars. The paperback (copublished by Steidl/Pace Macguill) measures five by six and one half inches and consists of 22 plates of admirable reproduction. These reflective portraits are the absolute epitome of simplicity and directness, subtlety and power by one of portraiture's most gifted practitioners. And the obvious question that comes to mind is why aren't more photographic books of this format and cost available?
