New York: PPP Editions, 2001. First edition. 4to., x, 305 pp., profusely illustrated from color photographs. A fine, as new copy in the dust jacket. Item #52481

A well illustrated collection of what may commonly be called, seminal examples of the range of photographically illustrated photography books from the past decade. The essays are quite good, and each book is accompanied by a historical text that sets its place among the cannon. What this, and all the other books that purport to be "critical references" fail to contain is the bibliographic details of the collations, bindings, dust jackets, and issue points. However, the field is still young and growing.

Price: $200.00
