If a picture is worth a thousand words, how many words are in a book about pictures?
We’ll let you mull that one over a little bit, but our real purpose for posting this afternoon is to pass along a question from reader Curtis Thomasco. Mr. Thomasco emailed us with a question about Civil War photography books–a subject our readership is sure to have some excellent insights about. Mr. Thomasco asks:
I was curious to everyone’s opinion on what is the best or “most definitive” comprehensive, photographic book on the Civil War. I am thinking it might be Miller’s Photo Essay book. However was wondering what your staff’s opinion is.
What do you think?
