Out Now: The Iconic Hollywood Photography of Julian Wasser

After spending his teen years as a crime-scene photographer in 1950s Washington, D.C., Julian Wasser headed west to infiltrate Hollywood's It Crowd. The Way We Were (Damiani, $60; out May 31), the first major monograph of Wasser's work, is a perfect time capsule spanning sixties, seventies, and eighties Los Angeles, with iconic shots (Joan Didion leaning against a Stingray) and unearthed gems (Anjelica Huston and Jack Nicholson horsing around at his house on Mulholland Drive).

Fifty limited-edition copies ($700) include a signed print of Marcel Duchamp playing chess with a nude Eve Babitz (pictured above). But if you can't get your hands on one of those, don't worry. This book has plenty of weird and wild nostalgia to go around.
