Cost of LF books on Amazon sky rocket. Why?
I bought Steve Simmons book on using the View Camera and Jack Dykinga's book on LF Photography just a couple years ago. I don't remember exactly what I paid for them, but the receipt is probably in the books as I usually keep those. Anyway, I know it was in the $18-$25 dollar range each. Now those books are selling on Amazon for nearly $100. I don't understand why books are shooting up so much. Are these discontinued and there is such a high demand for LF books that the law of supply and demand is calling for such prices? If they are in such demand, why are they not being published? I'm thinking that as much as I would like to keep these as I hope maybe someday to get into LF photography, I could buy a lot of stuff if I sold these on ebay. Any one out there know something I don't? Thank you. Ric.
