    Just got this book in the mail yesterday, It s still sealed up but I can t wait to have the time to slowly go through it I just love the title Color Rush It s probably very similar to Color American Photography Transformed which I also purchased, but I m sure Color Rush will have it s own identity.

    I ve gone to this show at the Milwaukee Art Museum twice I ve also gone through the book a few times and it s a great supplement to the exhibit The photographs are fascinating The history and insight by Lisa Hostetler is an interesting read Highly recommend this book Especially if you can t see the exhibit.
