Dear Feli,

Brian Bower has written a couple of useful books, Leica M Photography (ISBN
07153 08424) and The Leica Lens Book (ISBN 07153 08173).  They are both a
little out of date - the former doesn't cover the M6TTL and the latter
doesn't have anything on the newer M lenses such as the 28 f2.  However I
think they are still useful and not too pricey.

Another author who has written several books on Leica is Johnathan Eastland.
I've not seen his books so can't comment on their usefulness.

Hope that helps
