About to dig into Henry Adams ‘Mont Saint-Michel and Chartres’ which I was finally able to track down a copy of. The high quality, and rare use of negatives for printing, photography alone is worth owning a copy for.
Even more photograph heavy is Clarence John Laughlin’s ‘Ghosts of the Mississippi’. which I recently finished absorbing. Equally interesting is seeing what became of the structures in these photos.
I’m quite curious to see what appeals to other Oppo’s who have attained literacy. There are some very dedicated writers on here who surely must read something in their spare time. I feel the tone has been amply set with picture books that nobody need feel there is any slant that will be cast on whatever might be deemed worth sharing. Such as the entire John Gardner series of James Bond books I recently polished off.
