Book Review – The Myth of the Great Secret, Toby Johnson

A Search for Spiritual Meaning…An Appreciation of Joseph Campbell Not at all sure where or when I picked this up but I recall that it sat on the shelf for quite a while before I finally read it. An interesting book, written by a man who knew Campbell reasonably well and worked with him. Generally […]

Book Review – The Arts and Crafts of Travancore, Kramrisch, Poduval and Cousins

The Arts and Crafts of Travancore, Kramrisch, Poduval and Cousins Printed by the Royal India and Pakastan Society. Found this in an antique shop somewhere and just had to buy it. Travancore is a “province”, if that is the right term (and I doubt it is) for an area of India at the southern tip, […]

Book Review – Scanning Negatives and Slides, Sascha Steinhoff

I found this while traveling in New Mexico during our October, 2009 trip. It is the first book I have seen that treats of this subject so I jumped on it. This is an excellent reference for the subject but it has a clear tendency to address the high-end of this business, both in terms […]

Photographs by the Official Photographers Accompanying Each Army This is one of two such books that I bought at the DC Big Flea on 11/7/2009. This was a “buy on first sight” kinda thing….the reason being that my step-father had this book in our house when I was a child. I opened the book and […]
