Compinion for the cup

This is a good book to go with your cup of favorite. In any time of the day.

"Photography" by Barbra and John Upton.

This version was printed in 1976. It was required for my photography studies during college years. The book was very informative interms of film camera and darkroom procedures. Also goes very well with my gear which is mostly 60s-70s Single-Lens Reflex type (SLR type).

For those new to the photography field (Specially digital photography), The 11th edition might be more suitable. This book covers both film and digital.

Whether you are beginner or pro, these photography books can be really good reference material.
Even as a coffee table flip book for your studio or home.
