PHOTOBOOKSTORE UK - Always a pleasure to get their mailing...

In my opinion the UK's PHOTOBOOKSTORE is probably the best on-line resource for photobook collectors! It's always a pleasure to get their regular mailings. Today's mailing includes a list of most popular books which includes among others Ravens by Masahisa Fukase and Nausea by Ron Jude.

There are links to latest books, signed books, rare books and more... well worth a look and a certainly joining their mailing list.

Each book comes with a signed and numbered limited edition print, which you can see at the top along with the cover of the book.

MACK follows the making of a photobook with Clare Strand


Richard West from Northern Ireland's SOURCE publication reports that they have just published a film from MACK following the making of Clare Strand's book Girl Plays with Snake. The film looks at the publisher's contribution to making a book and the role the artist has in the development process. The video follows the making of the book from the first production meeting between artist and publisher through the design and printing to the launch itself.

With a running time of about 40 minutes, the documentary is well worth a look, you can do so HERE.
