Published just last week Vivian Maier: Self-Portraits is a newly published collection of the mysterious Chicago photographer’s self-portraits. If you’re unfamiliar with Maier’s amazing story you can get caught up here. The book contains about 60 never-before-seen black-and-white and four-color self-portraits culled from the immense archive of photos assembled by the book’s editor John Maloof. This blogger is currently demonstrating massive self-restraint in not using Oxford Dictionaries word of the year. You’re welcome.
