We are reportedly living and working in a ‘Golden Age’ of photo book publishing, an age in which the negative concept of ‘vanity’ publishing has been replaced with the ‘positive’ attitude of ‘self-publishing’. An age in which the photo book has become a marketing tool, collectable artefact and a financially achievable platform for so many photographic projects.
We have been involved with publishing for nearly thirty years and self-publishing for the last five. We understand the process’s required and the realities of design, production, print and distribution, despite this we are always looking to learn more. Here are some of the sites we turn to for inspiration, information and education.
