I was aware of this book's reputation for a while and finally got round to buying it recently. I have to say it lives up to its reputation; it is a real masterpiece.
First of all let's talk about the physical book itself. The size is just perfet; I recently had a photography book where the pictures were postcard size- which just isn't big enough. Praise to the binding that makes the book lie very comfortable in the hand and allows you to concentrate on the images.
So the images. I looked at the cover image, then the first one in the book itself and knew I would like this book. The photos are real gems: some of them are beautiful, some surprising, some real inspirations for any hobby photographer. All of them are outstanding examples of good photography.
This is a book that you will pick up many times and that will not accumulate dust in the shelf. I can only recommend it with the highest praise!
