My Parents sent me this book recently and while i didn't know i wanted it, i'm really happy to have it.
Moments Preserved By Irving Penn.
The book is all over the place & i like it that way. 
Some photo books are so niche oriented & strictly adhere to a specific theme that it ends up looking like hundreds of the same photo. They do fine though - i'm not knocking them, just appreciating this book that takes on a big swath of life.
it's an old semi beat up 1st addition full of cool marginalia & it smells like history.

Thanks Mom & Dad.
