This book is awesome for fans of polaroids or photography in general. Each picture has something unique about it, along with the short stories and poems. Great gift to give!

This is a wonderful little book that is at once a record of a community art show that took place a short while ago in LA, and a love letter to a medium that was victim to the same capitalist consumer culture that initially created it. There is basically no more Polaroid photography with the original Land 600 film, so this book is a kind of memento mori, and a very beautiful one at that. Here and there I wish the print quality was a little better, but for a $30 art book with such a small print run you certainly get your money's worth. The essays in the book range from anecdotes to short philosophical reflections and are a worthwhile read. I recommend it to the photography collector, to the equipment nostalgic, to the hipster coffeetabler, and the multimedia poet.

Quite the book indeed, very large range of subjects and styles!
If you you have had a Polaroid for years or are brand new to this format,
its a must have book. You can see my higher resolution images in this book on page 41, and one of a SNOWFLAKE described but not published at the
url's below. If you thought a snowflake (or moon) were outside the range of a polaroid SX 70, see what one of the best camera's ever made can do!
Great job ISM!!!
