Albums seem to attempt to capture the whole process of each trip - not just photograph scenes from the trip itself. They include photos of maps, trip announcements, equipment, as well as extensive captions (some in the form of limericks) and illustrations. David Brower termed the "Glacier" album the "prototype of exhibit format books."
Photographed by Braeme Eugene Gigas.
