Let me highly recommend Harald Mante's Photography Unplugged. This is a beautiful book superbly printed, 193 photographs on their own page, or occasionally a group of four photographs. All the work is in colour and the book is a celebration of colour.
I met Harald at Photokina 2008 - he was still running around with his ancient film Minolta and Kodachrome. You can see from his photographs that he was trained in the graphic arts, that he came out of the Bauhaus tradition of Germany and was both taught and influenced by Kandinsky.
This book can teach a lot about design to all photographers and even black and white photographers will find his colour enjoyable.
You can see many of the images at his website
although the images are unfortunately watermarked - still, it will whet your appetite to have the book.
The price is an incredible $50 list - a huge bargain.
