The Ten Best Photography Books

Bill Wood's Business - ICP/Steidl
Dapper Bill Wood's business was photography - he ran a studio in Fort Worth for more than 30 years, chronicling the lives of ordinary Texans in impressive detail throughout the Fifties and Sixties. An exquisite period piece that will appeal especially to 'Mad Men' fans.
Price: £25
Vanity Fair's Hollywood - Thames & Hudson
There's a slew of lavish photobooks published by the king of the American glossies, but this is the cream of the crop - stars of the silver screen polished, burnished and Photoshopped for your delectation. And the price makes it a real winner.
Price: £17.99
Portraits of Power By Richard Avedon - Steidl
Published posthumously, this monograph by the master of portraiture charts a turbulent half-century of American political history. The mostly black-and-white collection begins with "William Casby, born in slavery, Louisiana, 1963" and concludes with "Barack Obama, Illinois State Senator, Massachusetts, 2004". Awesome.
Price: £30
