Organised by Dutch photobook seller Yannick Bouillis, OffPrint Paris, which ran over the days of Paris Photo, was as it turned out a tremendously successful first attempt at providing a dedicated space for photobooks, giving the medium the attention it deserves.
Installed at Espace Kiron, located up the rue de la Roquette in the 11th, where over four days the venue became artist book / photobook heaven.
Many of the over 40 participants were specialized publishers of artist's books, like ABC Artists' Book Cooperative, Nieves, onestar press, and White Press. And there were booksellers too, Florence Loewy, Schaden.com, Dirk Bakker and more.
Every day drew big crowds and everybody I spoke to, photographers, publishers, book sellers gave the event a big thumbs up. It seems certain that it's going to happen again next year. Great!
