As a photographer, I'm often consumed with doing my own work. As a publisher, I'm often consumed with the task of preparing and publishing the work of contemporary photographers. As a consumer, the photographs that tend to fascinate me the most are often those from history — but then again that's not saying much since all photographs are "historic photographs" at some point in time.

I'm surprised how many times these come up in conversation only to discover that one or more parties in the conversation have never heard of either of them. Too bad, because they're both so much fun.

Both are highly recommended. Enjoy!
