BUY THE HARDBACK! The content in this book looks amazing, but you'd never know it via the e-book. The e-book is a complete failure. It forces you into landscape mode, so the images are so small that you can barely make out anything and certainly can't make out what the photographers wrote at the bottom of the images. You can double tap on the text to read it, but that is a miserable experience. I wish I would have read the other reviews before buying. I bought based on my previous experience with e-books and blog reviews of the hardback... In retrospect, this was not a good idea.

This is one of the best books about photography I have ever seen. What a wonderful project. The idea behind the book is brilliant. The execution - the actual book itself - is sublime. Having a collection of some of the most profound images of our day, with portraits of the photographers, and with their notes about the images, is just a phenomenal idea.

I could not recommend this book to anyone any more enthusiastically. It's great!

I love this book. All my favorite photographers and their famous photo. These polaroids are very impressive and have amazing quality, just like the book. Its a perfect coffee table book. You do not have to be a photographer to recognize the photos and the artists.

This book would be terrific as a hardback, but as an e-book it fails dismally. Can't enlarge the pictures or the captions (which are completely unreadable) - what's the point of that? Monumental fail, I want my money back!

Behind Photographs by Tim Mantoani is a photographic document of enormous historic importance. Beautifully photographed with the historic Polaroid 20x24 camera, Tim has shed some light on the photographers who along with their iconic images are preserved in this beautifully printed book.
If you love photography and the history of the medium, I highly recommend this book.

Tim Mantoani's book is great but has arrived with two corners broken due to the poor packaging... I've repaired it with glue... so now is still a great book..

this book let me think about my photographic journey, thank you Tim
