This section lists sources for different types of images, including photographs, plans, drawings, and maps. In addition to the books and other sources already listed, landscape images and plans may be found in specialized books and on the Web. Note, too, that images can be found in unexpected places, for example, in seemingly trivial or 'popular' books, such as Beauty in gardens; a tribute, by Roger B. Whitman, published in 1928, and which consists primarily of black and white photos of the work of selected American landscape architects, including Marian Coffin, Jens Jensen, and Charles Downing Lay. The archives listed in this guide are also potentially great sources for images.
