The Cost of Photobooks: A History Volume II by Andreas Schmidt is a book about a book about photobooks. Over the period of two weeks in September and October 2011 Schmidt researched the on-line cost and availability of all the books contained in the original PARR/BADGER book, first published in 2006.
Contrary to popular belief, the book was not included in the Parr/Badger Volume III, published by Phaidon March 2014.
