Doorbuster deals at Daedalusbooks.com

I just got a box of books the other week from Daedalusbooks.com some of which center around film photography, and all were crazy good deals. First up is Miami Graffiti by James Murray & Karla Murray (ISBN 9783791341620). This is a pretty cool little book of street art from Miami. Most of the work depicted is awesome, some of it resonates a little less with me. The photography of the street art is pretty good. Best thing is the price, Daedalus wants $3 for it!

Next up is Vintage 80s: London Street Photography, by Johnny Stiletto (ISBN 9780711232518). After discovering Vivian Maier I’ve re-fallen in love with street photography. Johnny Stiletto is no Ms. Maier, yet he has a interesting collection of street photos from London during a nostalgic decade. For a $5-er it is a visual treasure, rife with inspiration.

Last and by no stretch least is Motel Fetish by Chas Ray Krider (ISBN 9783836536011). This is the book that spawned a trilogy. The first printing of Motel Fetish still commands a good some, but this is the 2012 printing and at a very good prince point. Motel Fetish is a Not Safe For Work book and does contain nudity. This book is awesome. Printed at the dawn of the modern pinup renaissance, Krider adds a low-key, theatrical element to the genre. His images are dark, moody, alluring, and almost nefarious. There is a brooding intensity of unknown story lines behind each vignette. Impressively all the images in the book were shot with a Hasselblad medium format camera on color film. It is a gem if you enjoy pinup or film photography. For $7 it’s a must have. The reversible “panic cover” makes it disappear amongst your old college textbooks for when your Mom visits.
