Photofile series (from Thames & Hudson)

Above a selection of covers from the series Photofile published by Thames & Hudson.

"Publisher's description:
The classic Photofile series brings together the best work of the world’s greatest photographers in an attractive format and at a reasonable price. Handsome and collectible, the books are produced to the highest standards. Each volume contains some sixty full-page reproductions printed in superb duotone, together with a critical introduction and a full bibliography. Now back in print, the series was awarded the first annual prize for distinguished photographic books by the International Center of Photography."

To be honest I feel a bit disappointed in the covers, but I have hope of the content and hopefully that will bear out as soon as I'd had a peek through.

I have just received the Man Ray and Salgado books. The reproduction is fantastic and the text informative. They are fantastic value for money the content is awesome.
