FIRST EDITION. In Labyrinth Long 'has made a beautiful artist's book from the simplest of experiences and materials, within the reach of us all. This immensely satisfying, subtle book is a nominally simple look at a commonplace subject, yet Long's single-minded, concentrated looking forces us to scrutinize it with an attention we probably haven't given it before'. The Photobook, vol. II, pp.152-3.
