"Originally published in 1965, "A Dialogue with Solitude" has long been out-of-print and highly sought-after by collectors. In 1961, Dave Heath assembled the photographs that he had been making throughout the fifties into a poetic sequence. The original plan for a book, as he envisioned it, would be a large format, akin to LIFE magazine. When the book was eventually published, in 1965, it was reduced in size. Nevertheless, "A Dialogue With Solitude" was a landmark in photography - it quickly went out-of-print and for the last thirty years has been highly sought by collectors. The new Lumiere Press edition is the rebirth of a classic. Using the maquette from 1961, and the set of master prints, the book has been restored to the format of Heath's original design. The 82 images were printed in Berlin in the Novatone(r) process - an exceptional offset technique that preserved the photographs' brilliant tonal scale. The binding cloth and endpapers duplicate the original binding. In every way this book is the fulfillment of the artist's creative aspirations. To mark the new edition, a thoughtful perspective was provided in a brief contribution by Robert Frank." (From the publisher).
