Found this book by Taschen called Photo Icons: Un Petite Histoire de la Photo at the thrifts. It's Taschen's 25th anniversary special French edition. From what I've gathered, the book takes you through the history of photography with iconic photos and photographers starting from 1827. And it comes in a typical Taschen, racy book jacket(nsfw). Too bad everything's in French. Oh well, comme ci comme ça, right? If anyone can read French, it's all yours(seriously). I might get a used English version from Amazon for ummm...58cents!
