Thanks for posting this!! This awesome, I have been looking for many different photo books to check out.
I just looked up the first couple and Tom Wood's photos are really nice and I also liked the Eugene Richard photos I found, very powerful stuff. I still need to check the rest out, since there's so many. Ed, since you know tons about photography, I'm guessing you have seen RAY's A LAUGH by Richard Billingham, cause that photos book is amazing. Yeah, i think you should post tons of awesome art stuff on here non stop! Thanks bro.

Yes! I have Ray's a Laugh!

I have another one of his books too, but it is not as good. Tom Wood also has books called "Bus Odyssey," "People," and "Photie Man." That last one Photie Man just came out and should be on Amazon.

#1 Photography book that your mother and her co-workers ( in a west Texas funeral parlor! ) will flip through before sending it to you as a Christmas present "The Golden Age of Neglect" by Ed Templeton!

And as mom puts it "Your mother has seen every single one of those photos!"

Ed I want to buy one of your books, I'm thinking about either gettind GOLDEN AGE OF NEGLECT or your new DEFORMER book, i know both of them are different one's a photography book and the other is (from what i have read) more about your life and stuff, but i don't know what to pick. hahahaha what do you think I should get? hahah
peace.

Deformer will be more about Orange County. It has TONS of photos in it, but it is very much about Suburbia. Golden Age is more of a sampler. I want to make a book of photos specifically from my skateboard life sometime in the near future.

ED!!! you should make a zine collection book. second editions of all your books or a book of some your harder to find books. or something like that i payed 450 $ for 2 copys of situationle comody. they booth are in bad condition tho i wish all your books were easy to uptane. \_/

The place in Holland that made Situation Comedy may be reprinting it.

I'll post news here if they do.

Yeah loser situation comedy is THEE hardest Ed Templeton book to find. I hadnt even heard of it until I saw it on ebay once, and your probably the guy that got it. Luckily I have a good friend who gave me his extra copy or else I would have never been able to afford it, 450 is great deal for two copies of it though, youre lucky you found them.
