The J. Paul Getty Museum, Los Angeles Copyright Mrs. Janet M. Stenner

If your summer plans don’t include a trip to Los Angeles to see the J. Paul Getty Museum’s A Record of Emotion: The Photographs of Frederick H. Evans, never fear. The accompanying monograph, by Getty associate curator Anne M. Lyden, beautifully captures the spirit and substance of the pioneering architectural photographer. The reproductions of Evans’ moody images of medieval British churches, such as Southwell Cathedral (shown), make the monograph well worth the price. Added value comes from Lyden’s investigation of Evans’ lesser-known work: views of the English countryside, photo-micrographs of natural specimens, and portraits of Aubrey Beardsley, George Bernard Shaw, and other contemporaries. $50; Getty Publications
