On On Reading:

"One of the world's most accomplished photographers takes a moment to appreciate the quite contemplation of reading." —PrivatAir

"In the hands of McCurry it's something that becomes beautiful and wonderfully aesthetic."—Amateur Photographer

"McCurry's photographs show the absorbing power of losing oneself to the written word in any situation."—The Guardian, Travel

"Here's a self-reflexive book for you... Captures the joy of picking up a book."—The Independent

"[A] beautiful, humanizing look at readers across the globe."—Fast Company's Co.Design

"A babushka in her kitchen in Russia; a man in Rome selling pictures out of his car, two monks in a temple in Cambodia; a guy on the NY subway; a kid on the street in Myanmar - all doing one thing: reading." —Cara

"Inspirational and just plain beautiful... Would make a great Christmas gift, with appeal to non-photographers and photographers alike."—Professional Photography

"A taxi-driver scans a newspaper while sprawling on his bonnet, a handsome hiker reads Woody Allen in the Dolomites, and an Ethiopian child in rags pores over his exercise book: the settings' diversity underlines the universality of the activity."—World of Interiors

On Untold:

"At heart a chronicler of catastrophe... McCurry's lushly coloured, far flung reportage has made his work some of the most recognisable among that of Magnum photographers, but a new book Untold: The Stories Behind the Photographs reminds us that perhaps his most striking asset is a relationship with Afghanistan that dates back to the Seventies." —Daily Telegraph/The Sunday Telegraph

"Steve McCurry: Untold spans 30 years of McCurry's career and includes fascinating ephemera from his travels: diary entries, photos of him at work and some of the 20-plus passports he's gone through over the decades... He manages to make the world seem enormous and quite small; exotic, and somehow familiar." —TIME

"Untold spans 30 years of McCurry's career and includes fascinating ephemera from his travels: diary entries, photos of him at work, and some of the 20-plus passports he's gone through over the decades. McCurry survived the Slovenia plane crash, as well as armed robbers and bombings in Afghanistan, but what comes through in his images is wonder, rather than suffering. He manages to make the world seem enormous and quite small; exotic, and somehow familiar." —TIME LightBox

"Spread over some 250 pages are famous and lesser-known images, as well as anecdotes and shots of ephemera he gathered along the way, including letters and journal pages." —The Wall Street Journal
