Are you people nuts !!!9 Sept. 2009
- Published on Amazon.com
I can't believe this brilliant and fascinating history is being remaindered for $7 ! I am half way through it and it is spellbinding (of course you DO have to be a photographer). I've been a photographer for.... a very long time.... and I didn't know half this stuff. The old adage 'the winners write the history books' is certainly true. The rich contributions made by pictorialists through the entire first half of the 20th century have apparently been very successfully buried. Dig 'em up here! If you are fascinated by the early history of photography then you need this book.
