Bone up on your photog knowledge with this beautiful coffee table book from one of our favorite publishers, Taschen. Released this April, Photographers A-Z ($42) is filled with 400+ entries on the most influential shutterbugs of the last 100 years including monograph’s from Ansel Adams, Bill Brandy, Irving Penn and Andy Warhol to name a few. You should know though that this collection is not limited to just pleasant shots of beautiful women, places, and things — there’s plenty of rough-and-ready photo-journalism and war correspondence too. In short, it’s the best encyclopedia we’ve come across for chronicling the incredible work of one of the most gear-obsessed cliques we know of, aka photographers.
