1 Blount, Roy, Jr. Am I Pig Enough for You Yet? : Voices of the Barnyard
0060194871 / 9780060194871; You may not believe this/because I'm a sheep, but I am not getting/near enough sleep. I start to doze off. /my heart starts thumping. /Someone somewhere/is counting me jumping. This is a wonderful book of photos of (mostly) barnyard animals and the thoughts they think, in rhyme. What about those funny looks we get from horses, pigs, geese, ducks, llamas, and yes, chickens? This book opens up the inner lives of livestock, revealing their concerns about relationships, food-chain issues, and why people see cows and want to go 'Moo'. " This is a great book, very amusing but thoughtful too. It's one that you can look at again and again, and see something new in the photographs. 103 pages, 1" remainder mark on the bottom. The jacket has some tiny bends at the top. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall.

2 Cohn, Nik; Peellaert, Guy 20th-Century Dreams
0436276178 / 9780436276170; This may well be the ultimate expression of celebrity worship gone mad. 20th-Century Dreams derives from the journal left by Max Vail at his death. His long and astonishingly varied life was spent moving relentlessly up the ladders of power. This journey took him to Vienna, Berlin, Paris, London, and finally America, and involved him with almost all the great names of the age. His journal provides a new and often shocking insight into recent history - its buried liaisons and indiscretions, its plots, deceptions, fateful meetings and stolen romances. Among the 85 scenarios rendered in this book, we see Jackie Kennedy and the young Cassius Clay, Hitler and the Windsors, Elvis and Bill Clinton, Idi Amin and the Queen. And over all of them hangs the shadow of Max himself, the eternal loner who is their missing link. Each scenario has a short explanation; at the end there is an index of works, listing the individuals included in each - but it's great to guess first.

8 Heilman Ii, Carl E. ; McKibben, Bill (Introduction by) Adirondacks Views of an American Wilderness
In most places, human beings dominate the picture. But in a few spots. Nature rules unchallenged. " So writes Bill McKibben in his uplifting introduction to Adirondacks, a book that reveals nature's glory, and the unique give and take between people and wilderness in the vast Adirondack Park. Bigger than the Grand Canyon, Glacier, Yellowstone, and Yosemite National Parks combined, the Adirondack Park contains a stunning array of mountains, wildlands, forests, rivers and lakes, waterfalls, and deep gorges. Photographer and Adirondack resident Carl Heilman has traveled from the foothills to the highest peaks in all seasons to photograph the park's natural wonders, its flora and fauna, and the myriad variations of light and weather that make each trip to the region a new experience. 160 pages, illustrated in full color. The glossy cover has a few pressure marks that can only be seen at a particular angle. 8" x 11" wide.

Psychic Photography: Threshold of a New Science?, Holzer, Hans
9 Holzer, Hans Psychic Photography: Threshold of a New Science?
Ghosts? Hans Holzer claims nothing he can't prove. You yourself can corroborte the authenticity of the incredible material his book contains. All you have to do is open the cover. The photographs that parapsychologist and ESP authority Holzer makes public here for the first time were taken under test conditions with factory-inspected cameras and film. Fraud, double exposure and light leaks have been carefully excluded. The more than fifty photos in this book show energy patterns, strange magnetic fields and even human figures and faces, some of people known to be dead. Some of these psychic photographs were taken by Holzer himself; others under his control or in his presence - even on television before sixty million viewers. Among those whose psychic photography skills Holzer investigated are a New York industrialist and a San Francisco physician. Ghosts? Decide for yourself. The binding is black cloth. The dust jacket has some wear at the spine top and a bit at the top back. ; 4to - over 9¾ - 12" tall

0896600793 / 9780896600799; This moving and beautiful book offers unprecedented insight into the astounding strength of the human spirit when confronted with illness, pain, loss, and death. Carolyn Jones' vivid and life-affirming portraits capture people from all backgrounds - children and grandmothers, men and women of all races - living with HIV and AIDS. A common and harmful misconception holds that AIDS is an instant death sentence but, in fact, testing positive for HIV does not mean immediate illness. 73 people volunteered to pose for these photographs in an inspiring effort to change the way we think about AIDS. Jones' compelling portraits have the power to profoundly alter perceptions about this disease, and about the way we all live and die. 87 pages, small black remainder mark on the bottom. The binding is white cloth; the jacket price is clipped. Fully illustrated with black & white photos. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall.

12 Moreno, Richard Nevada Desert Lows & Mountain Highs: a Photo Essay
1885515006 / 9781885515001; In ten years of travel throughout Nevada, I have explored its deserts, mountains, cities and small towns and have met the independent, resilient people who live here. Even with the diversity of livelihood - from rancher to casino owner, small businesses to government workers, I've found most share a genuine pride in the state and a passion for wide-open spaces. This can be a harsh environment with extremes of temperature and terrain. But, throughout Nevada I have seen some of nature's finet work. Some of these wonders are breathtaking, while others simply make me feel at peace with the world. It is my hope that this book will show Nevada as a serene, sometimes primitive land with precious natural settings that should be preserved for the enjoyment of our children and their children, rather than as a wasteland to be exploited as a digging and dumping ground. Nevada is one of my favorite places. Let's hope that we learn to manage this unique environment so that future generations will be able to enjoy it as I have. - Larry Prosor This book is fully illustrated with stunningly beautiful photos, and essays to enhance them. 175 pages. The binding is grey cloth with gold lettering. The jacket has a tiny tear at the top near the spine, and is a bit bent at the top. Folio - over 12" - 15" tall.

13 Morton, Rachel One Island, Many Faiths: the Experience of Religion in Britain
0500019878 / 9780500019870; During the second half of the 20th century, partly as the aftermath of WWII and more directly as a result of the dissolution of the Empire, Britain gradually evolved from a fairly rigid uniculture nation into a melting-pot of ethnic groups and faiths. It is this significant and fascinating change in the national configuration that prompted Rachel Morton to tour the country with her camera, exploring the multitude of religions and their devotees. From various Christian sects to Baha'i, from Reform Judaism to Hinduism, from Islam to the New Age, Morton has documented religious beliefs in Britain by photographing and interviewing individuals or groups at prayer, taking part in religious festivals, or engaged in othe related activities. Every duotone photo is accompanied by a personal statement from the people involved, what it means to them, and what it does for them. This is an unusual book of hope and fulfilment. Includes 70 photographs, bibliography, and commentary from Alison Seaman and Alan S. Brown of the Shap Working Party on World Religions in Education. 10" x 10 1/4" wide. There is a small mark on the ffep. ; 4to - over 9¾ - 12" tall

15 Saba, Marcel (editor) Witness Iraq: a War Journal Frbruary - April 2003
1576872009 / 9781576872000; . Now the digital age is upon us, and nowhere in photography is it more omnipresent than in photojournalism. The processing and shipping of film has given way to the uploading and transmission of the digital image. All of the photographs in this book came from digital cameras, allowing us to see glimpses of war in "real" time. There is no doubt that the still camera remains a powerful tool and this book is a tribute to that. Through the eyes of some of the most renowned photojournalists working today, you will see the realities of war, you will witness courage, tragedy, heroism, fear, humor, and compassion. Through these powerful images of conflict, you will see not only the horrors of war, but humanity at its best. - From the preface. Each photograph indicates the photographer, the date taken, and the subject. A fabulous collection of full-page photographs; text included. Unpaginated, approximately 200 pages. The binding is pictorial. Folio - over 12" - 15" tall.

16 Saline, Carol; Wohlmuth, Sharon J. Sisters: Tenth Anniversary Edition
0762417889 / 9780762417889; In 1994 a new photo-essay book captured the hearts of people around the world, as it celebrated the profound relationship between sisters. The women featured in the collection were writers, athletes, students, painters, socialites, and teachers. Sisters from all walks of life, all ages, told of how they fought and made up, laughed and loved, and how they gave, risked and resented one another - but never stopped caring. In this 10th Anniversary Edition the authors have revisited many of the sisters included in the original edition. They found women who had experienced a decade's worth of life's joys and challenges through births, deaths, falling in and out of love, and illnesses, but one thing remained constant - that of the bond with their sisters. Sisters is a rich, evocative portrayal of life, loss, and the unique love between female siblings. Beautifully bound in light gold fabric with gold lettering, there is a bit of wear on two corners and the spine ends. The heavy jacket has very minor wrinkles at the spine ends. ; 4to - over 9¾ - 12" tall
