My fave books are :
I love these books in my collection and i believe others would enjoy them, although i am a big 'still life' fan.
Kenro Izu 'Still life'
Irving Penn 'Still life'
Robert Parke Harrison 'The Archietects Brother'
Robert Mapplethorpe 'Pistils'
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.
