Do any of these sell enough that it might encourage publishers to print more (no need to reveal the actual numbers)? I'm constantly frustrated by the speed your recommendations get sold out and regular bookshops never seem to carry the good stuff.

I was surprised and pleased to see The $12 Million Stuffed Shark on the list. I had borrowed this from our local public library several months ago. I've always considered myself to be a photographer, not an artist. Photographers are from Mars, artists are from Venus.

I guess pushing a few copies of Annie Leibovitz's book makes up for the occasional bashing of her "work."

Mike were you the one that ordered Annie's new book?

not to imply anything, but Kirk Tuck looks like Fred Gwynne.

Anyway, I'd have thought the Sam Abell book would have been closer to the top of the list. It's a jewel.

Very interesting, Mike...

BTW, after being done with the taxes, decided to stop procrastinating and just jumped the gun with the "subscription". I am more than glad to support your site.

Thank you EZ! I need to issue a general proclamation of thanks to everyone who has subscribed, but I'm going to wait a bit on that....

I appreciate it though. Tough times right now.

I am pleased to see Kirk Tuck's book doing so well in this list. I am also not surprised, he is one of the good guys in the photographic community. He writes well, takes great photographs and generously shares his many years of experience and love of photography through his books, articles and online participation. He also has a new blog that is worth a check out: http://visualsciencelab.blogspot.com/


Of these, the only one I got was the creative digital darkroom and I'm just starting to crack the surface of everything in it. It's a fantastic book.


Perhaps an idea for a future post, but how about a list of your favorite/ most important photography books both in technique and people's works, that can be bought fairly cheaply, for those of us on a budget?

Although I wasn't able to buy it through your link, the best book I've picked up as a result of this site since The Americans is the Karsh book from the Chicago show. What a gem! Bruce Davidson's book is also worth every penny.

Mike,

Do books that sell-out immediately after being featured, but are low on availability, not get tallied in your totals?

For example, Fred Hersog's "Vancouver Photographs" was in short supply and immediately became unavailable. But one could also consider it to be very popular.
