A Definitive Visual History of Photography This is a real treat and a source of much valuable information for anybody interested in photography. I received it as a birthday present and it has pride of place on my coffee table. It covers both biographical and technical subjects in some depth, and much else besides. This is not a how-to book, but will provide much pleasure if you enjoy browsing. Highly recommended.
