Images in Books

Books offer high resolution images of photographer's works. Search the Library Collection for a photographer's name (e.g. Bill Henson) and check the 'Format' section under the book Details for the words 'ill.' - this indicates that the book contains images (AKA illustrations).

Format section of book Details

Photography books are on Level 9 in the 770-779 range. Some are held in the Large Book section which is also on Level 9.
