Photo Books: Photographer’s Monographs

People have asked me about this before, so I thought I’d put the complete inventory here and update it periodically instead of making longer and longer blog posts. This is my inventory of photographers’ monographs. It’s organized alpha by photographer/author and then by date. Technical manuals and exhibition catalogs are on separate pages.
