/ Photography Books
As a book covering a lot of the greats of photography, you could do worse than go for The Photo Book, published by Phaidon. It features one photograph from each of 500 photographers - a lot of real classics in there.
Yes, The Photo Book is very good, also the National Geographic Field Guides are great - http://www.amazon.co.uk/National-Geographic-Photography-Field-Guide/dp/0792253159/ref=sr_1_18?s=book...
Some good recommendations - I actually have the Photo Book myself and I'd thought along the lines of National Geographic. The Photographers Eye seems well recommended on Amazon. Thanks for the tips.
Approaching Photography by Paul Hill is also worth a look. Slightly more academic but still very readable it gives a good overview of the genres of photography - and isn't just based around the notion that images have to be 'pretty pictures'. If the person the gift is for is a really creative teenager they would really enjoy it.
