    Just purchased a book at Borders In Thurrock today published by Taschen
    Edward Weston , a retrospective of his work, blew me away, cant stop looking at it , his still life is so absorbing, and his ability to see an image within an image in his landscapes is amazing probably one of my best buys in the last year it will take pride of place with David Plowdens Handful of Dust.

    Was it the one with the shell on the cover? in blue? - part of the 'Icons' series I believe. It's quite good if we're talking about the same book.

    I *think* that there are different editions which just have different covers. The library copy I have read appears to be different than the edition that is now available on Amazon and in bookshops. Taschen did a whole lot of books in the Icons series, all of which were great. As a matter of fact, I can't recall any of their books that I have read that weren't well worth the $10 (US).
