Recommended PhotoBooks in 2009

I have been thinking about my list of Best PhotoBooks for 2009, and I am in sort of a quandary. The implication is that this list would be for the books that were published in 2009, but the fact is that many interesting books published in 2008 took a while before I could acquire them. And I have not seen or read all of the books published in 2009, not by a long shot. So I am going with what I would “recommend” instead, not presented in any order as to ranking of the best of those recmmended, but I think that these are the photobooks worth further consideration.
