I started with Anne William's _Look & Cook_, a book with a variety of
recipes from plain white bread to focaccia. It has *pictures* of
everything - what the dough and bread should look like at each stage of the
making, the tools, the ingredients -- perfect for a beginner.
The hardcover price is $19.95 and it is published by Dorling Kindersley.
ISBN 1-56458-866-1. Good luck!
