The book pages of Paradoxplace have grown quite extensive in parallel with the site itself.   You will find links to all the book pages here.

 

Originally, most of the books were in our library, though as the bookshelves have started to seriously overflow, we have introduced direct links to images of book covers at Amazon. 

 

Some of the most interesting books have been bought during our travels.  Most but not all are available at Amazon but we have shown them anyway.  As you may have guessed from the website we are into photos, and many of the books reflect this preference.

 

Because of the extent of the book pages, we have added this "Latest Additions" page - which shows the new book entries as they are put up, and where they have been assigned.  The "new" books are not necessarily recently published, but they have recently joined the Paradox library and / or come to our attention.

 

Of late a really interesting source of book ideas has been the books ordered through our Amazon links which are not mentioned in Paradoxplace.  Of course, we do not know who ordered them, but thanks to the buyers for the ideas and for helping Paradoxplace financially by using our Amazon links.

 

 

   

 

We have finally (September 2008) managed to track down a copy of this magnificent coffee table book - Outstanding photos, text and content choice.
