I believe today is the deadline for Sal DiMarco's book list. I already
submitted three
books, but it felt so good doing this that I would like to do it again.
They are:

                                 Figments from the real world
                                 by John Szarkowski- The Museum of
Modern Art N.Y.

                                 ISBN 0-87070-1 {Paperback}
This is a posthumously printed book from a MOMA exhibition _Garry
Winogrand. It includes
images from some quarter million or so that he never saw.

 This is a great book! Covers equipment, technique. It has a fine
gallery of well known Leica
photograhers. For the gearhead in us all, the equipment is from the
early to mid seventies,
probably the last "pure" all mechanical, handmade Leica equipment.
