I originally thought this book's cover photo was a re-do of André Kérteszs' famous 'Fork, Paris 1928'. After all, it would be a relatively easy image to replicate, and there was no credit given to Kértesz on the jacket. Closer scrutiny revealed, however, that it actually is the original, cropped and doctored up with applied color and a pattern on the table. KB
