My currently most desired book:
Anybody have it? I'd love to hear about it.
This is the book I actually bought for myself this month:
When I was at MoMA last month we stopped by the new-to-me bookstore (they've moved it since I was last there). S. was being particularly patient with me (because she loves books too and understands), but I was trying to be considerate to her—so I zoomed through a large number of books in record time.
Of all the ones I saw, this was the one I decided to get. Munkacsi is a photographer a) whose name I never could spell, much less pronounce, and b) who I've never known much about but have always wanted to get to grips with. I've always been aware of him, specifically because—famously—it was seeing a particular one of his pictures (this one) that H.C.-B. said inspired him to become a photographer.
I've not cracked the munkacsifent tome since it arrived at TOP Secret Underground World HQ yesterday, but I get to do so later today.

yz: "Munkácsi was Hungarian and the proper pronunciation of his name is like: MOON-kah-chee."
