So this book ought to be extraordinary. Combine polaroid photography, and the voyeurism of seeing into other people's worlds and it should be the best example of books like this. But it isn't.
The photos on the front cover aren't included and, unfortunately, they're the best ones. There are several which are just glare, from the sun, or from the flash reflecting, I don't know. Many are blurred to the point where you can't quite decipher what's going on, and the bulk are made up of photos of empty roads, or buildings or pieces of furniture.
There are several of people, and one or 2 that will make you wonder what on earth was afoot at the time - you'll be immensely tickled - but they've put all the best ones on the front cover and, again, not repeated them inside. It's disappointing as it misrepresents the content an awful lot. However, the accompanying notes to say where each polaroid was found are interesting, and certainly add to it.
I don't regret buying it; I'd coveted it for months. But have now bought some polaroid film for myself, and am in the process of covering my fridge in little windows to 40 years ago... it's much more fun.
