Great book, great subject. I never get tired of reading about Bukowski, looking at the photos. He was so goddamned human.

There are pictures from the book that I, for one, would like to see again that aren't even in this thread. If I hadn't traded my digital camera for a Holga I might add them, just so you can see what I mean.

A Holga? Art snob. They say if you send another $25 to China, they'll let you focus the thing.

mjp: you should post that Don Knott's look-alike photo. Shoot it with your Holga. That'll piss him off. It'll be so blurry he won't be able to prove it's him.

You say Don Knotts and you have to smile. Please send the photo, even a bad look-alike.

This is part of the LOOK INSIDE THIS BOOK feature from Amazon. I guess it's a photo of the Author? The book hasn't arrived yet, so I'm not sure. Not exactly. What a great guy! I'm so happy he put out this wonderful book!

Ha ha - if I could focus it, it wouldn't be any fun. I love that fucking camera.

Besides, real art snobs pay $300 for Diana's or old Soviet Lomos. ;)

My first digital camera was something called a Kodak Smile or E-smile. A lens the size of a fly's eye. It was unfocusable, and the images heavily pixilated. So, get one of those and you can have your fuzzy Holga images and your digital camera all in one. My favorite cameras long ago were the junk plastic lens cameras I bought in thrift stores for 39 cents. I published a small book of photos using those. Pictures of big donuts on top of donut shops. It was an L.A. thing. But I digress...

If only someone would work on publishing a bibliography where these books like this "donut" book could be cataloged...

You know, I bought this book. I mean it's classic. Look at some of these beauties:

Really fantastic. I whole heartedly recommend buying this book, and I do so without any reservations what-so-ever.

We all do.
And hopefully Mr. Sounes has realized that meanwhile.


(ps: the one above would make a good argument for hindi's purposes, wouldn't it?)

Yes, yes, yes, this book is GREAT. And would you believe I found it USED in a Frisco bookstore for $8.50...in perfect condition? Who the hell would sell it for a few meager store credits or measly dollars?! A real asshole, that's who. I'd like to thank that asshole.

Hi,
I thought that the book was crap. Montfort's photos were not included at all. It would be like paying for a seven course meal and only getting the sorbet.

Great response! Next, Uncle Howard will want to have that pic removed too! :D

Richard;
Not an asshole, but someone who had taste and no longer wanted that tainted piece of crap around anymore. You can see all of those photos all over the internet for free. Your welcome.
 
Just got a copy of this 2nd hand at about the 4th or 5th attempt. For some reason sellers kept saying they had it only to then turn around and say they didn't when they checked. Strange. I was beginning to think there was some conspiracy at work.
