Vincent Borrelli Books

A couple of days ago I got an email from one of my favourite photography bookshops - Vincent Borrelli - that they now have a website up.

And quite a website it is - albeit a dangerous one for anyone addicted to the fetish of photo books. He specialises in signed and also out-of-print copies of the best photography books and monographs.

Hunting for that rare copy of John Gossage's seminal book The Pond? He has it (an affordable $350.00... ):




Lee Friedlanders Cray at Chippewa Falls ?($650.00):





Michael Schmidt's influential Waffenruhe ($1,250.00):


But not everything requires a second mortgage. He also has many still in print but harder to find books at regular prices (usually signed copies)

Such as Emmet Gowin: Mariposas Nocturnas: Edith in Panama $65.00:





or Todd Hido: House Hunting $75.00:



or the recent William Christenberry monograph (again, signed) $65.00:
And the two (of many) I lust over most...?:

Yamamoto's The Path of Green Leaves (a mere $750.00):




And Terri Weifenbach's Hunter Green (a steal at $150.00):




time to put the three year old to work :-)

And also time to stop drooling now... (and - bugger it - I just saw the copy of Billingham's Ray's A Laugh that I sold for a few bucks is now worth $650.00...)



P.S. - I'm going to be off-line for a few days. Back soon.

That reminds me: wasn't "The Solitude of Ravens" supposed to be reprinted this year?

Tim, you need to work out an inter-library loan system. Here in San Jose, I've found everything from a Brodovitch BALLET to Perress's LEROS and many others, all via mouse-click requests....
