I don't remember them when they were new but I have picked up a few of them second hand in the last couple of years. They came out around the time I first started photography, but I didn't really have BAS the first time I got into photography...I used to have the Time Life series of photography books, but they went before one of my moves overseas.
I thought they were very good, but that may just be nostalgia talking. Is anyone else here old enough to remember them?
Learning to See creatively (Bryan Peterson). Just pressed buy, I should finish Gordon Laing (In Camera) over the weekend.
My wife just bought the English language version of the Henry Carrol book. It's perfect for beginners and others with no formal technical photography or compositional training. No wasted words and covers each topic in a couple of pages.I just added these to the pile, by actually enter a bookstore, shuffle through the photo section and pay over the counter...

The top and bottom ones are rather self-explanatory I gather, the bottom one is a translation and was on sale. The middle one is Volume 1 of the Norwegian Journal of Photography, and I had planned to pick up volumes 2 and 3 as well, but was detractred by the Vivian Maier volume so the latter volumes of NJP can always be had a later date. NJP is a rather interesting project, well worth a browse at: Norwegian Journal of Photography
