- The book that should be on every sports shooter's Christmas wish list

Phaidon Press of London has just released a wonderful new coffee table book entitled "Sportscape: The Evolution of Sports Photography."

(A link to this book on is found at the bottom of this page.)

This book contains a HUGE collection of pictures that represents some of the best sports pictures of the last 100 years. "Sportscape" tells the story of how sport has been shown through the medium of photography throughout the 1900's. The book is filled with many unusual and never before published pictures from Hulton/Archive and Allsport.

The 350-page hardcover is a great addition to any bookshelf. The book retails for $50 but can be purchased online through for $34.97. (Link below.) What's fun about this book is that it has a worldwide perspective. It isn't just full of American sports.

Several current Allsport shooters are featured including Jed Jacobsohn, Al Bello, Jamie Squire, Jonathan Daniel, Ezra O. Shaw, Brian Bahr and Mike Powell to name a few.
