On Thursday B will celebrate its second birthday. What better way to commemorate than with a quiz?

As some may have noticed, in June I began the practice of appropriating the titles of photography books as blog post titles. Sometimes I will tweak the title slightly to help it fit the material. For example, this title refers to Frank's The Lines of My Hand. More often I use a book title without alteration, as in today's or yesterday's post.

Your challenge is to identify the author(s) of the most book titles on B from June 2009 to the present. The quiz only applies to post titles having nothing to do with the book. So, for example, even though American Prospects appears in several titles it is not a candidate because all of those posts relate to that book. To qualify, a title must be appropriated outside its original context.

B turns two
with help from People Facing Their Birthday Cakes by Julio Grinblatt

The first person to correctly the author(s) wins a very special birthday gift, a mint copy of Julio Grinblatt's book People Facing Their Birthday Cakes, published in 2005 by Blue Sky Gallery.

Good luck!

I'm gonna take a shot... is it Martin Parr? There are 3 post titles from June 2009 which refer to his books: Small World, Boring Postcards, and Bad Weather.
