Did you enjoy your Avedon for breakfast? Good, now it's on to Avedon for lunch. After seeing his new exhibit at SFMOMA, I picked up Richard Avedon: Photographs 1946-2004 ($45). It's the first major retrospective — designed by Danish graphic designer Michael Jensen — of Avedon's work since his death in 2004. The title explains it all, but you have to see the photos to feel the impact. Bring Avedon into your home and see 125 reproductions of his greatest work, including fashion and portraits from his early Italian subjects of the '40s to his more recent shots. One of my favorite modern Avedon portraits is the 2004 shot of Bjork, mesmerizing.
