LightBox presents a special preview of the season’s best photography books, featuring new titles from legendary photographers Stephen Shore and Bruce Davidson, as well as inspired work by contemporary photographers Michael Light, Julie Blackmon and LaToya Ruby Frazier.

These photo books, lovingly designed and meticulously edited, are a rare treat in a time when photography is all-too-often relegated to selfies and snapshots, and offer an opportunity to truly indulge in the unfettered beauty of a well-made book.

If you are a publisher and would like to submit a title for our Spring/Summer edition of the Guide, please contact lightbox@time.com.
