The book features quite a number of artists, each with their own style. You learn a bit about the artist and how they achieve their results. Sure, you can hop on the internet and view thousands of random pictures, but here they are curated for you. The best of the best are arranged so you can page through, find what inspires you, and then of course you can always Google to learn more. There are a variety of inspirations. I really liked a diptych by Sylvia Plachy where the first image gives you a quite different impression than the pair as a whole. I also liked Laura Burlton's image of a real girl on a chalk-drawn fake background. It shows how endless the possibilities are. I especially love the shot-on-35-mm images where the image goes right over the sprocket holes.
It's important to note that there is nudity in here. If a parent is buying this for a young child, they should take that into consideration.
There's information in here on various cameras, like the Holga and Diana, with all their various accessories. It talks about film types.
It provides quite practical advice. Don't bother with a lens cap. I had heard this message many times and yet I still managed to try taking photos with the lens cap on! Really, listen to it. It provides details on how managing light leaks on Holgas.
I like the emphasis on fun techniques like multiple exposures. To me that's the beauty of a camera like a Holga. And the connected panoramas.
And then the book goes into wildly fun ideas. Take a cyanotype of your negative. Mat them with non-traditional framing.
I brought this to a photography meeting and people loved looking through it for ideas.
The paper used in this book is beautiful and does justice to the many excellent images inside. If this were a large, hard cover coffee table book for big bucks, it would be a good investment. .
