Hello--

I'm offering FS a trio of books dedicated to electronic strobe and other high-speed
photographic techniques. All three books are mainly of historical interest and hence are
sold in one batch. As you might expect, these books feature lots of cool illustrations
showing spilled milk,  shattered bottles, explosions, hummingbird tongues and more.
