    How-to vs Picture Books in Your Library

    What is roughly the ratio of how-to vs picture books in your photographic library?
    Regards

    The only how-to book I have is Alfred Eisenstadt's "Eisenstadt's Guide to Photography" which I received as a present, when I was still in high school. I keep it, not solely for its content, but because it came from a dear family friend, who has since passed. I've looked through many others, in bookstores, in the the past, but never was much interested in purchasing the how-to category. I have about 50-60 monographs, history, and criticism books (combined). Currently purchasing some books through Steidl.

    Heaps of how to books/chemistry texts.

    Fewer image books; I tend to rotate through the image books, and often look to more periodicals for images, and might cut the odd image out before the magazine or newpaper gets tossed.

    The how to books I am more selective with now, although if I find a good one for others at a garage sale I will buy it and donate it at the next camera club meeting I attend.
    my real name, imagine that.

    Very many how -to compared to image books. It will get worse soon because I have purchased Way Beyond Monochrome Edition II. Looking forward to early October

    At least with LF landscape, a bad day of photography can still be a good day of exercise.
