One of my favorite "books" is 15 years of Swiss Camera magazine. Such variety.
sorry.I forgot to return them.
I found a few more of my art books I forgot to catalog the first time around:
Envisioning Emancipation: Black Americans and the End of Slavery Deborah Willis and Barbara Krauthamer Temple University Press 2013 Eros & Thanatos Duane Michals Twin Palms Press 1992 Hardcover, First Edition, Limited Edition Dance Ink: Photographs J. Abbott Miller and Patsy Tarr Chronicle Books 1997 Anthology of photos from Dance Ink magazine, featuring the work of nearly 100 photographers Case Histories: The Presentation of the Victorian Photographic Portrait 1840-1875 John Hannavy Antique Collectors Club 2005 Mediterranean Mimmo Jodice Aperture/PMA 1995 Exhibition catalog from the Philadelphia Museum of Art The Eternal Body Ruth Bernhard Chronicle Books 1986
I created a pdf version of my list, see Photo_Book_Collection
For each photographer, I selected the one in my collection that I liked the best. The list only includes monographs.
I would love to have all my books cataloged and indexed. I would love to have the same for all my LPs and CDs, but that ain't gonna happen either ... :confused:
So it is always a good idea to start a catalogue like this.
Just think first about what you want to use it for (affects the layout and organization) and how you want to mark things once they have been entered into the database.
Oh, and back up your work!
