55 images -- that's the format for the Phaidon 55 series of books ($10 each). They are compact collections of some of history's most influential photographers, and in addition to the photography, there is commentary from the photographers themselves -- invaluable insight into what they were trying to do when they snapped the picture. Oh, and one more thing: each book in the series is only $9.95. Under $10! At that price, start yourself a library.
