Swanson Media's books are drawn from the best images in our stock photography collection. Photo books offer tremendous cost savings compared to photo prints. We use a commercial photo book printing service that prints our books on heavy, archival quality, acid-free paper. We use different sizes and formats depending on the subject matter and length of book. Large hardcover book covers are made from 100% linen and wrapped in a dust jacket. Smaller hardcover books have a photo cover. Some titles are available in a softcover version.
Photo books make great gifts!

The Moments in Nature series of photo books showcases the nature and wildlife photography of Mark Swanson. The books are not field guides. Rather, they are collections of photographic portraits and observations of animal behavior. While the photographs do serve as records of species, more importantly they are documents of specific moments in the active and complex lives of individuals.
