Toronto. Carl Mautz of California sent me an email recently announcing his massive 5 pound hard cover book Biographies of Western Photographers. The book covers photographers who worked in the American and Canadian West when photography began. The book was “45 years in the making” and its 772 letter size pages contain “over 20,000 thumbnail biographies”.
For those of us into the history of photographers, the book may be well worth the price ($175US pus shipping). Carl did warn me that international shipping is far higher than the $6 US shown for domestic mailing in the continental USA.
