With both undergraduate and graduate degrees in photography with an emphasis in photographic book production, in 1976, it was an easy leap for me to open a book business concerned with all aspects of photography, from the artistic to the technical manuals of the nineteenth century. Having conducted business in Brooklyn Heights, Philadelphia and almost 30 years in Chapel Hill, North Carolina, I recently returned to the place of my youth, Akron, Ohio, where my extensive inventory may be seen by appointment. -- Andrew Cahan, ABAA, since 1985.
