I would be grateful to anyone, established or otherwise (incl publishers) who would be willing to send works through to the collection, these works will be featured on the Photobook Club website, will be taken to various book club events and will be open to anyone willing to pop by for a cupa! The condition of the works is not of paramount importance so any misprints at publishing would be welcomed with open arms...

Photos, videos, books, pintxos... it's all envy :)
 
The Photobook Club San Sebastian’s inaugural event was a huge success with a great turnout and fantastic selection of photobooks, new and old. Big shout to organizer Yosigo Yosigo who also put together this wee trailer/teaser from the event and also documented each of the books brought along...

Travellin 'Box of Books' on its way around the globe, first stop Coventry
 
Earlier in the week I launched the Photobook Club’s ‘Box of Books’ at a special event with the Photobook Club Coventry. The books were all really well received and prompted some great discussions.

In december we participate in the first PhotoBook Club Toledo meet-up and one of the discussions we had led to this post about two books on 'colour'.
(Post is in spanish, but translators are good enough)

"In one corner of the ring with brightly colored breeches and riding a tricycle, William Eggleston with his coach Sally EauClaire. In the other corner of the ring, stomping, without a coach and a panty which reads newcolorguide, aspiring champion John MacLean.
Champion against aspirant, face to face."

This is a great post, and it's funny - not something you often think about with Eggleston

I liked very much this intervew with John Vink. Congrats +Martin Brink. It's delightful to see how a photographer is completely aware of all the parts in the process he is into. They way he understands the medium, the easy he tells it... It's like he is as committed, let's say, to what he is showing with the job he develops as he is to in how he wants to reach its public, directly.
So... what do you think?

I thought this was a great interview too Boni, although one issue was raised for me:

John mentioned a mass of content that was able to now be housed in a digital platform which is great and in no way do I suggest the choices he made in inclusion/exclusion were sound. However I wonder whether the removal of 'cost per page' economics will result in poorly edited and 'loose' digital artifacts.

Just a thought though

Introduction
