    I remember talking to him about it in about 1991 or so and at that time it was going to be remaindered so he had bought what stock he could and was selling it off from his basement - which was full to the rafters. This was only a couple of years or so after publication (and now you can buy it for $250.00 used - knew I shouldn't have given away those extra couple of copies I bought of him!)

    I recall the writing of the book had a sort of Gene Smith epic quality to it that entirely suited the subject matter...

    Well, I have all of the books mentioned except; River of shadows and Between life and art. Thanks for the heads up Tim and Fly.

    Now you say Shadow & Substance is worth $250.??? Maybe I don't like it that much. I think I need some more open space on my bookshelf. Funny, Tillman Crane's book "Structures" is going for more used on e-bay than new out of his basement.

    just from a quick check on ABE - a couple of possible bargains in the $40 range I think - then several around the 200.00 - 250.00 mark....

    Is anyone working on a Brett Weston biography? I've got his DVD but feel he's neglected (biographically speaking) compared to alot of lesser photogarphers.

    While not photo-related, "Lust for Life" by Irving Stone. I _loved_ that book.

    The Diane Arbus book was alright. I found it inaccurate and almost poorly written at times. Alas, it's the only book out there on the subject of Arbus..
