    Abandoned Places - Henk Van Rensbergen

    Surprised to see this one not mentioned here.

    Abandoned Places, by Henk Van Rensbergen

    Great photos of abandoned castles, factories, military sites, including Noisy, Tivoli, La Chartreuse, Mesen and others.

    Each place has a write up by the author of his feelings about the visit, and the photos are stunning, about 70% of which are black and white.

    Probably my favourite derelict photo book to date, so far. I picked up my copy at Waterstones, but it's available at most of the bigger book chains. Recommended.

    The author has a website including some of the images from the book, which is a good explore in itself:

    Hey yeah great book, I've had a flick through this when I stumbled across it in a book shop not so long ago. Well worth the time because there's some great photography going on in there.

    Although checking the link, I don't think I'll be parting £522 for a copy though, the £2.80 delivery fee is through the roof!!

    The second book is avaialble from Amazon for rather less than £522 and is a fantastic volume. Well worth looking into.

    I've checked Amazon and the first book is available there, at prices from £403. It must be extremely rare, which is a great shame as the second book was so good it leaves me wanting a copy of the first!

    We could hope for a second edition!

    Glad so say I did eventually pick up a copy for a fairly modest £25, so there are some out there. Mine came from Hay-on-Wye, so it looks like the answer is the long job of searching bookstores.

    Later this year I'll be in Wigtown, another Town of Books, so I'll have a look there as well.
