    Outstanding photo exhibition

    Not book related, but close enough to strongly recommend here (hopefully):

    Bound for Glory: America in Color, 1939-1943 (Library of Congress)

    A fascinating photgraphic glime at America circa WWII in color.

    From the site:

    "Bound for Glory: America in Color is the first major exhibition of the little known color images taken by photographers of the Farm Security Administration/Office of War Information. These vivid scenes and portraits capture the effects of the Depression on America's rural and small town populations, the nation's subsequent economic recovery and industrial growth, and the country's great mobilization for World War II."


    Here are the images:

    Edited to add:

    Spoke to soon at the beginning, there is a book connection. Paul Hendrickson's book by the same title:
