"William Eggleston's Guide" was first published by The Museum of Modern Art in 1976, in conjunction with the exhibition "Photographs by William Eggleston". The type was set by Bullard/Morris & Walsh Typesetting Co., Inc. The book was printed by Lebanon Valley Offset, Annville, Pennsylvania, and bound by Robert Burlen & Son, Inc., Hingham, Massachusetts. It was distributed by The MIT Press, Cambridge, Massachusetts, and London, England. This second edition aims to make the book available again in a form as close to the original as is practical. With two exceptions, the plates have been made from new digital scans made by Martin Senn directly from William Eggleston's original 35mm transparencies. For the plates on pages 81 and 105, for which the transparencies no longer exist, the scans were made from original dye transfer prints in the collection of The Museum of Modern Art. The type has been reset digitally. Except for changes on the copyright page and the rendering of the sponsorship credit into the past tense on the following page, no other changes have been made. The Museum of Modern Art is grateful to William Eggleston, Caldecot Chubb, the Eggleston Artistic Trust, and especially Winston Eggleston for essential help in preparing the second edition.
