As per tradition, we’re sharing our picks of the top photo books of 2010. Some of our picks are instructional and some are simply for fun, but all illustrate the unique power these special books hold. Aside from books, we have an in-depth Test Report on the Panasonic Lumix G2, a compact system camera. Finally, be sure to check out the extraordinary imagery created by California’s Photo Arts Group on page 144.
