In a recent edition of the Washington City Paper, I ran across an article written about a colleague of mine, Bob Reed (“Head On,” 5/5). Bob Reed is an occasional architectural critic for the Alexandria Gazette Packet. I have worked with him to illustrate some of his pieces.

The article surprised me with the reference to my work on his book. Maybe the writer misunderstood. Reed did all his own culling. I spent about 17 minutes looking at the different photographic printing processes available to him, culminating with a call to one of the archivist suppliers to explain Reed’s concern with the lack of gray tones in the reproductions. All the credit is Reed’s for his project.
