JPG Magazine

JPG Magazine

Most photography magazines are intimidating. We desperately want to pick one up at Barnes & Noble and immediately enjoy it, but it never works out that way. There's always something too elitist about them. That's why were extremely happy to find JPG Magazine ($20). It's a photography magazine for the average guy. Sized like a book more than a mag, the quarterly features interpretations of a themed word and usually some shots by a pro. And anybody can submit a photo for consideration in the mag, so get snapping.

  • The Polaroid Book

    In this age of megapixel-hungry amateur photographers running amok with digital SLRs, it’s nice to remember that photography isn’t about the medium — it’s about the subject and composition. A great reminder of this is The Polaroid Book ($40). A collection of terrific work (shot on Polaroid film) from some of the world’s most well-renowned artists, this book helps remind this Uncrate staffer why I still have a Polaroid laying around the studio.

  • Schott's Original Miscellany

    There are so many useless facts in the world — why not own a book of them? Schott's Original Miscellany ($11) holds the answers to such life-altering questions as “Which Burmese kings died ‘curious deaths’?” and “Does anyone in the house have a schematic of Dante’s Inferno?” Factoids abound in this volume from Ben Schott, as does humor — making Original Miscellany a perfect holiday gift or stocking stuffer.
