    Sigh. How much to rent for a month?
    Stop worrying about grain, resolution, sharpness, and everything else that doesn't have a damn thing to do with substance.

    They can be found in libraries, though I think that is usually a three week checkout.

    Libraries? I thought all the kids with digital cameras and iPods burned those down?

    Indeed. They are far too often overlooked. However, I have found some very good and very rare and/or expensive photo books in libraries.

    Heartbreaking story alert: My college library used to have a first edition copy, in French, of course, of The Decisive Moment, but it was stolen some time in the past five years. What a bloody shame that was.

    You really find some gems there...and sometimes they will even go out of their way to acquire a book by request. It cannot hurt to ask, anyhow.

    BTW, not sure if it is in libraries yet, but Freidlander has a new book out called "America By Car." It is worth a look. I have it on loan from a friend, but I would definitely want to own it.

    Anyhow, sorry to hijack the thread, Dave. It is a great book. Definitely worth owning if you can swing it.

    Wow. I had no idea these had gotten so expensive. I got my copy as a birthday present in 2005. I love it, one of my favorite monographs.

    $250 now? I'm glad I picked up my copy off Amazon when it was $47.

    ....and the price will only increase. Jim Goldberg's "Rich and Poor" only cost $25 new, but now it's been out of print for years and copies easily fetch $800 (he's still alive too and could re-publish the book at any time). It might seem expensive, but given that Winnogrand is dead and there's probably not going to be a re-issue of this book in the foreseeable future, I bet this book will triple in value in 10 years. I'm not an expert in book collecting by any means, but I've seen this happen to a few different books.
