This week, a book called The Oxford Project rise to #46 on Amazon.
Twenty years ago, Peter Feldstein decided to photograph each one of his neighbors in the small town of Oxford, Iowa (pop. 676). Recently, he photographed the same people again. He convinced a friend, a University of Iowa journalism professor, to interview the subjects about their lives in the intervening years. The side-by-side photos of the subjects from then and now, along with their stories became The Oxford Project.
Only one of 9 large library systems I checked have the book on order, with 47 holds on 6 copies.
The book is currently at #222 on Amazon.
