This book by Susanne Lange who wrote her dissertation on their photographic work gives an excellent overview covering a including a biographical overview, the history of industrial photography, the photographic techniques and methods used by the Bechers and an attempt at typology of the oeuvre.
The main body of the book is taken up by plates showing the different subjects that the Bechers photographed in a sort of highlight of the various types of structures that they photographed.
This MIT Press book is printed on excellent paper and I recommend it highly as an introduction. It is also valuable for its extensive bibliography.
