    Anything from Michael and Paula's Lodima press will be worth having. Either their own work (the Tuscany books for example) or their productions of other photographer's work, like "Edward Weston, Life's Work" are excellent volumes.

    As mentioned above, PhotoEye is a terrific source. They have an email flyer every week. The books that have a "book tease" link are obviously much easier to evaluate.

    I agree with Michale Kenna's "Japan". The best book that I own is a handmade book with 24 original photographs in it by a photographer that I studied with at a workshop in Maine. The photography is beautiful and the book itself being a work of art compliments it niclely. The photographer is Cig Harvey http://www.cigharvey.com. I love her work and she is an amazing person.

    Some favorites on my shelves...

    "The Americans" by Robert Frank
    "Warwick Mountain Series" by Phil Perkis
    "Prague Panoramic" by Joseph Sudeck
    "Passage" by Irving Penn
    "Odyssey" National Geographic
    "Treadwell" by Andrea Modica
    "Ralph Eugend Meatyard" published by ICP/Steidl
    "Frederick Sommer" published by Yale Univeroty Press
    "Gertrude Kasebier" by Barbara Michaels

    I find that Photo-eye can be a great source for hard to find out of print books, but you can get better prices through Amazon. (Got a great price on that Frederick Sommer book!)

    Hmmm... it's been awhile since I bought a new photo book

    20 or so years ago I worked at a used and rare bookstore. I had free reign of the extensive photo section. There are 2 photographers whose work burned into me: Sally Mann, and Ralph Eugene Meatyard. I have and will not part with Sally Mann's Immediate Family, and the recent Ralph Eugene Meatyard by Ralph Eugene Meatyard and Guy Davenport.

    I continue to learn from them and be haunted by their images.

    Also, where do you buy your books from?

    Thanks.

    The Jouranal of Conemprorary Photography, Volumes 1 & 2
    Szarkowski 'Ansel Adams at 100'

    One book I would love to get is Tom Baril's, self titled book. Its out of print and thus demands a high preimum to get hold of a copy, but i hope to get lucky one of these days and find one for a reasonable price.

    Here is a copy for $200. NOt sure what is 'reasonable' to you, but it was the least expensive that I could find.

    I don't really have a lot of photography books, but these are my favorites:
    "Workers" by Sebastião Salgado (no need to comment on this one!)
    "Shooting Sex" by Bob Carlos Clarke (even funny and somewhat useful to read...)
    "Belles" by Hervé Lewis (pure beauty)

    Then there is a book which I really want to buy but haven't found in any stores which is "Serge Lutens" by Serge Lutens. I have only seen two or three pictures from this book and still I want it, I must have it, and I will get it some day!

    Has anyone mentioned 'Creative Black and White Photography' by Les McLean?
