Without being flippant I have seen many great books on photography and photographers in book shops.

Was kind of hoping K1W1 that people might share their particular favourites.

Taschen has a "20th century Photography" book that is a good start. Find them used on Amazon or perhaps locally. I found it at a discount used book store for $5
