    Eggleston, Elizabeth Moulton (1934 - 1976)

    She was a very interesting person!

    Eggleston's Guide is a must-have. Essay by Szarkowski.
    Los Alamos is usually expensive even in used format, but it predates the guide, and show the maturation of his art.
    Using film since before it was hip.

    If we're talking about William Eggleston, then I second "The Democratic Forest". A William Eggleston must-have.

    Of those that I have seen, I would say Los Alamos. IMHO, it blows the Guide away. I have it printed by Scalo and it is one of those books that looks like you could eat the ink off the page.

    Los Alamos and Guide are both essential Eggleston books, in my opinion. I also like 2 1/4, which is beautifully printed from Twin Palms publishersw. For Faulkner addicts (like me), Faulkner's Mississippi with essay by Willie Morris is enjoyable.

    I have Guide and 2 1/4 and would certainly recommend them. I've seen Los Alamos and yes it should be on ones wants list.

    He also has 5x7 which looks interesting.
