Remy Charlip, Where is Everybody ?
This is a 1957 book (reprint of 1969), bought on Amazon for $16,49 (probable 2/3 of the price is the shipping) Pierre ordered it because it’s really close to his work : minimalist drawings and design. A great read for our 4 year old son, Lucien. Seems it’s also a book for my father : weather is nice, and then rainy, and as he always says : “Tu devrais...
Maxwell Anderson, See you soon
Self-published, 2010, bought £23 on Maxwell’s here. Maxwell took some time to sign the book with his nicest pen Another book about a love story Maxwell !!!?? Then the girl has to leave, the book turns unhappy “The sky was beautiful. I imagined what a beautiful last view she would have of England. I realised how much I would miss her”
Philippe Halsman, Jump book
Published 1986 by Harry N. Abrams, bought $55 + shipping at ABEbooks / Mister Rogers books. It’s a second edition. I own this book. It took me a few months to get it. First I thought “I’ll buy it some day”, a few weeks later I tried to order it. I have ordered it 3 times to 3 different merchants. The 2 first ones - after a couple of months each - were out of stock. ...
Asger Carlsen, Wrong
This one is published 2010 by Morel books, I bought £25 it through their website. There are 2 different covers Just like many people I love Morel books, and this one is a great one. Sometimes when you look fast at the pages you wonder, and then see… wrong
Stuart Woodman, Now we are 30
2010 Self published (under the name Doubleplusgood books) This one already had many reviews, by now I’m sure you all know about it, and you all understand Stuart turned 30. The pictures are beautiful, and I love the idea to use Polaroids larger than usual, and to keep the Polaroids outline (which you can’t actually see on our pictures).
Harvey Benge, Against forgetting
I met Harvey Benge a couple of weeks ago, while he was in Paris, he gave me his new self-published book. This is about Harvey’s family, and in a way it reminds me Pictures from home by Larry Sultan. I am family-sensible. Take some time to visit Harvey’s blog too.
Joscha Bruckert & Andreas Till, A man sat alone in...
Thank you Joscha for sending me your self-published book, released together with Andreas Till. The book comes with 4 posters Signatures ! love that. This is a great little book. Thank you guys.

Zoe Crosher, Out the window (LAX)
Published 2006 by Los Angeles Forum for Architecture and Urban Design, bought 10,41€ though Amazon.de I had wanted this book for a long time, but I’m quite disapointed. I love the pictures,I love the idea, but the design kills it. The book gets boring.

I bought this one during a London trip, it was on sale (£15, I think) (c) Aaron Siskind It’s not my best book ever, but there are some usefull things in it, by photographer, by decades, and what’s to be / not to be done I have always loved that picture, and Imogen Cunningham’s work. I may need this kind of shelves within a few years
