"The Polaroid Book", a survey of this remarkable collection, pays tribute to a medium that defies the digital age and remains a favorite among artists for its quirky look and instantly gratifying, one-of-kind images.This title features: over 400 works from the Polaroid Collections; an essay by Polaroid's Barbara Hitchcock illuminating the beginnings and history of the collection; and, a technical reference section featuring the various types of Polaroid cameras.

Review by

Photos from the collection, covering a wide variety of subjects and techniques. Some abstract, some manipulated. We used to do that in the 80s - I wonder where those photos are now? Somewhere in my garage. Anyway, enjoyable.
