52 x 52 Photobook of the Week in 52 Words

Merrie Albion by Simon Roberts

Once again Roberts gets to the heart of defining the English in this handsome monograph depicting our diverse yet collective soul.  The title conveys the yearning for an idyllic, albeit non-existent, way of life, but that doesn’t stop us trying.  This social and political quest is beautifully documented in Roberts’ inimitable photography.
