Spirit of Sport.

Photographs by William Klein, Joel Meyerowitz, Nicholas Nixon, Sheila Metzner, Mary Ellen Mark, Jim Dow, Lee Friedlander, and Starr Ockenga.
New York Graphic Society, Boston, 1985. 122 pp., 9½x12".

This collection of essays and photographs offers a fresh look at the genres of sports photography and sports writing. The intention here is to bring an "idiosyncratic and individual style" to the subject. For example, in Donald Barthelme's humorous essay we read a fantasy about famous authors and artists who also played baseball, accompanied by a series of Nicholas Nixon's photographs made at a baseball game. Other essays are more serious but no less unique.
