Starstruck by Gary Boas  DEC 09 2002

I ran across a great book in Paris called Starstruck (buy @ Amazon):

In 1999, on a visit to Boas's home in Lancaster, the editors of Dilettante Press discovered rows of meticulously assembled scrapbooks lining the sagging bookshelves of Boas's bedroom. The albums revealed a vast personal archive of over 50,000 images of famous people. This discovery resulted in an internationally acclaimed photo exhibition and the book, Starstruck: Photographs from a Fan.

The photos in the book are mesmerizing, especially the older ones that offer a look at celebrity that you just don't see much of anymore. I literally could not put it down.
