on PHOTO LA 2007

Deep into the Photo LA gallery expo this weekend, preparing to give lead a Collecting Seminar tomorrow. Noting the emphasis on photography books, limited edition and small press titles are in abundance; collecting books has clearly come into its own. Saw copies of THE AMERICANS by Robert Frank that had price tags ranging from $6500 to $12,500 depending on condition. Take care of your photography books, especially those that are signed! Whether you bring them to the second market or donate your book collection to a library or museum, they should have a long happy life as well cared for objects.
