    Well, I have about 600 photography books, so favorites are hard to choose from, but here goes:

    Paul Caponigro: Masterworks, Wise Silence
    Brett Weston: Master Photographer, Photographs From Five Decades
    Morley Baer: Stones Of The Sur
    Ansel Adams: Yosemite And The Range Of Light (the first monograph I ever bought)
    Minor White: Mirrors, Messages Manifestations, They Eye That Shapes
    Harry Callahan: Waters Edge (awesome book)
    Michael Smith: Landscape I & II
    Edward Weston: Life's Work, recently published by Lodima and very good

    That's all that come to mind now. Maybe I'll list some more later.

    I have many of the books listed so far and return to them constantly. What's surprising though, is that other than a couple of books by Muench (David and David and Mark) and one by Dykinga, all of the monographs I have are B&W. Oh, and Cole Weston's book, "At Home and Abroad" is color as well. The point is that, in my own head at least, I usually think of fine-art photography books as only being in black and white.

    I've always wanted to see more of Paul Caponigro's work. The only book of his I have is "New England Days"...it's marvelous and highly recommened if you come across it.

    It's the same for me too John, B&W is definately favoured. Though there is a lot of colour landscape work that I regard as fine art, it tends to be more abstract stuff.

    So many great books mentioned, one I would add, particularly if you like abstract images is Steve Mulligan's recent publication "EarthWorks".

    If Steve Mulligan is the guy I'm thinking of, he had a few prints hanging in the back of Tom Till's gallery in Moab. They were really nice.
    Facts are facts; however, perception is reality.

    Yes I like his work, though haven't been able to see a large amount yet. There is a preview of his book at: http://www.photoeye.com/templates/mS...?Catalog=ZC247

    Don't forget Joe Cornish. IMHO, the UK has some of the finest landscape photographers in the business, although I am a huge fan of Jack Dykinga.
