What do Diane Arbus, Karl Lagerfeld, Spike Jonze, and Queen Elizabeth II have in common? They’ve all used a Leica.
Leicas were the first widely-used precision miniature cameras, the basic tool of modern photojournalism, and they’re still coveted 83 years after their debut.

Curious about the images in the book? The preview doesn’t do it justice. The photos are incredibly varied. A bride taking her first “married” bite of salad. The New York Times Building getting a bath. A lingering kiss in Barcelona. Profits from the book will assist homeless individuals through Project H.O.M.E. No wonder we first blogged about this in January.
