Swann Galleries Important Photobooks and Photographs catalog – May 19, 2011

For photobook collectors, the annual Swann Galleries PhotoBook auction in NYC is quickly approaching. Their illustrated catalog in and of itself is a wonderful collection of trivia, information and a pulse on the relative value of the photobooks that you are sitting in your library. The catalog is inclusive of both the photobooks and photographs in the auction, thus a great two for one value at $35.00 US.
